Looking For Photography Inspiration Then Here Is Where To Find It
Taking pictures, having a love for photography or simply using it as a hobby is a wonderful experience to have. It enables you to capture memories, feelings and even specific thoughts during snapshots of time. However, sometimes it can be hard to find the inspiration to take the pictures and take your camera out. Just like writers can struggle with writer's block, photographers can still feel a similar mental block on the inspiratory side of things. I thought I would share with you some of the ways you can find it again.
It’s all around you
Let’s be honest, you shouldn’t really have to step too far from your place to find some form of inspiration. It can be anywhere. You may find it in nature, in the countryside. The weather could cause a flash of inspiration or even head into the city. Try and look at normal aspects of life. The daily commute, people walking, the quiet of the country and open spaces of fields and hills. Look at them from a different point of view and spot the beauty in everyday things and ways of life. Doing this simple trick can often spark some form of inspiration to get those creative juices flowing once more.
It’s in the things you love
Sometimes you can find the inspiration in the things you love. It might be a particular room in your home that you enjoy spending time in, the way the light enters into a space or hits your garden at a certain time of the day. It could even be in the hobbies you enjoy to do besides photography, the food you cook, the books you read. Take some time out to enjoy the other things you love in your life, and you may find your inspiration returning sooner than you thought.
You might find it online
Often heading to websites like Pinterest can be enough to ignite some inspiration. But if you are still trying to find a new direction or creativity then why not check out some popular photography blogs like my own. Websites like FujiUser, or similar, who share not just photographs, but their thoughts and ramblings alongside them. Some blogs and sites share tips and platforms like Instagram share daily photo challenges. Sometimes these things are enough to get you snapping away again.
Just keep snapping
Sometimes you just need to snap away and see what comes out after a session. What you thought might not have inspired you at the time, could have turned into a pretty epic photo.
It’s with the people you care about
Finally, we have discussed finding inspiration in the things you love and the places you like to be, but too often you just need to spend time with the people you love and care about to find some inspiration. Take pictures of your children or loved ones, observe them and see what makes them happy or smile. Even just spending time away from the camera and with your family can inspire you moving forward.
