Now that it’s the new year, have you thought of what to do or what to improve on your photography? If you still haven’t, you’re in luck, as The Phoblographer has outlined 10 tips designed to jumpstart your photographic passion, and help you become more creative and productive in the process
Schedule Time for Your Photography – Too busy? Your favorite show is still on? Stop making excuses and set aside time for yourself to shoot.
Find a Photo Buddy – Shooting with someone else makes your LomoWalks twice as fun and gives you a different perspective on potential shots.
Take a Walk – You aren’t going to accomplish much by just sitting down. Stretch your legs and go for a stroll. You never know what you’ll chance upon!
Go to the Library or Bookstore – The masters are called the masters for a reason. Immerse yourself in their work and be inspired!
Get Out of Your Comfort Zone – Used to shooting in full auto or with a particular lens? Change things up and maybe you’ll develop a whole new way of seeing things.
Attend a Photowalk or Workshop – A workshop is a nice avenue for learning new things, and it offers you a chance to make new friends!
Make Prints – Don’t be content looking at your photos from a screen. Having your images right in your hands is a different feeling altogether.
Provide Feedback to Others – Join in on the discussions, engage in friendly banter, and comment on insightful articles here in the site.
Photograph at Home – If you can’t leave the house, still continue shooting! Your home might sound boring to you, but there’s always a potential shot in every nook and cranny. You just have to look for it.
Always Carry a Camera – Pretty self explanatory , this one. You’ll never get amazing shots if you don’t have anything to take a picture with!
