10 Tips for Creatives – Photographers

We all go through those horrible creative slumps.  I’ve had a couple of people ask me how I get rid of those damn creative blocks, so I figured I’d give my tips to help you.

It’s a frustrating time for us creative people and I hope that if you have a creative block, you remember this post.  The video below is a bit longer than most of mine, but I feel it will really help you so I don’t want to break it up.  You can go to the end if you just want to hear the 10 tips and below I have them in bullet points. With that said, I think the video is really good because I go into a lot of detail.

Your 10 tips:

    • 1.  Grab ideas
    • 2.  Do some research using this PDF. This PDF is part of our membership Adventures of the F-Stop.  We went over the sheet in detail.
    • 3.  Monthly challenge
    • 4.  Understand composition & break it
    • 5.  Join a membership group
    • 6.  Try new lenses
    • 7.  When creativity hits you, write it down on a notepad or your phone
    • 8.  Most of your work won’t be seen.
    • 9.  Don’t be a compareslogger”
    • 10. Take a break

Doing a search on the internet to grab some post-processing ideas gave me the idea of processing this from art I’ve seen.
