You've probably been there before: stuck in a creative rut. I know I have. It's easy to get into when you're shooting the same subject matter over and over again. Don't believe me? Try shooting ecommerce on white non-stop for a month and you'll see what I mean. But sometimes all you need is a change in perspective to set things right, figuratively and literally.
In this video we go along with Adam from First Man Photography as he sets out to break himself of his own rut. Early in the morning in North Yorkshire with a Canon 5D Mark IV and Mavic Pro in hand, he's on a mission to regain his passion for landscape photography. At first you might say, "Wait a tick, here's a landscape photographer talking about how he's gotten bored with landscapes, and his solution is to go take more pictures of landscapes?" But, in doing so I think he's out there doing something for himself, and it works! He shows us how simply changing from a normal perspective of the camera can yield wonderful compositional results. Not only is changing the vantage point of the camera an important way to discover new shots and ideas, it can also be a metaphor for anything in your life that feels old and stale. Change the perspective, and you'll see something new, something different. And that might just be what you need to breathe some life into your work.
