I have always loved this quote from Mike Litman in Conversations with Millionaires, "you don't have to get it right, you just have to get it going."
And that's what this series is all about - creativity as you discover how to find photography spots.
Please continue reading below the sunflowers.
Do you daydream about what you would like to photograph when you have the time? Or once you learn more about how your camera works?
Do you feel stuck or unsure of what to create and so you don't do anything?
I have experienced these stuck in a rut, take no action days, and I can relate. Sometimes these stalls can go on for days and weeks, and it's frustrating!
What to do?
Here's a tip for you, and it helped me immensely...
During a home study photography course, procrastination became my middle name. Finally, one day I decided enough was enough, and I firmly told myself, "just do 15 minutes!!"
In other words, act and focus on whatever I decide to do - read a few chapters of study material, experiment with my camera, or begin an assignment, for example, BUT - DO - SOMETHING!
What if, for 15 minutes, you went on an adventure and discovered how to find photography spots for yourself?
Where can you go or what can you do?
Learn a new hobby or skill, dust off your camera and take photos, or _____________ (listen to your heart and fill in the blank).
I encourage you to take 15 special minutes to play, create, and be the artist! However, what you choose is up to you and anything your heart desires.
What will you discover?
If you haven't already, I almost guarantee you will find that 15 minutes is not enough time once you get going.
When I'm in the zone, I feel like a child too busy playing to stop for food, and I suspect you may feel the same.
The sunflower photo came about after pondering how to find photography spots and then playing for 15 minutes without knowing what would happen.
Beginning with the idea, I then turned it into a fun experiment in the dark.
As a bonus, I heard the peaceful night sounds of nature, ending with the hooo, hooo of a great horned owl.
What will you create with your how to find photography spots adventures? Even for just 15 minutes (and more) time and time again! Today.
