It's often that us photographers can find ourselves stuck in a rut, looking up at other creatives and wondering where they get their ideas from and just thinking that some people have it, and some people don't. That little voice in our heads can really be detrimental to our self-confidence and reflect in our work.
These three tips from musician/YouTuber Andrew Huang are fantastic ideas to keep in the back of your head when you feel creatively drained. These tips are incredibly to the point, and the final tip is in my opinion the most important. Practice makes perfect, and that extends to inspiration and creativity. While I know next to nothing about music, Huang's channel is one of my favorites on YouTube simply because of his sheer creative drive; it's incredibly inspiring. Videos like this are really great tips on how to be a better creative professional.
Creativity really is like a muscle: the more creative you are or attempt to be, the better your brain becomes at making those connections between ideas and action, finding small, simple things that are seeds for creating something new. How about you? Do you agree or disagree with Huang's sentiments? Do you have any more tips to add?
