Sister Corita Kent's first rule for students was: "Find a place you trust, and then, try trusting it for a while." There are both practical and philosophical benefits to having a location that is your photographic home. Explore them in this video.
Ted Forbes' more philosophically oriented videos are always spot on, and this one is no different. Of course, knowing a certain geographic location intimately is beneficial for a photographer in a very real sense: one is able to draw upon different areas for their light, their textures, their environment, etc., but I think that also carries deeper into the creative process. These locations can in turn feed back into the creative process, the potential that lies within them can be the basis of new ideas or experimentation. Furthermore, I think there's an idea of comfort to be considered; we're more likely to be creatively adventurous in a place we know well, because it frees our mind from devoting energy to more first-order thoughts like how to get back home, plus there's the security of being somewhere we know. It's admittedly a bit nebulous, but I do think it makes a difference. Do you have a photographic place? Tell us about it in the comments!
