A photographer asked a question in a Facebook group I’m in, sometime last year, about how to get better at varying her perspectives for her photos.
So I told her:
“Try it all. Go high. Go low. Shoot between. Climb on chairs… move back, move close. Think what will help capture the moment the best. Don’t be afraid to try it all because – why not? If it doesn’t work then you still learned from it and know what to try next time. Like my 11 year old says “YOLO – you only live once” so go for it.
Creativity in any form is a learning process and how will you learn if you don’t – to borrow the slogan for Nike – just do it! Get in there. There is nothing wrong with trying it all and seeing what happens.
We learn from the failures as much as we do from the successes so get out there and fall flat on your face!
I’m serious. Get out there! What are you waiting for?
