Every photographer wants to be better. What if I told you there is one secret that will unleash your potential and make you exponentially effective in what you do? This video takes a dig at a point that certainly needs to be known by every photographer who wants to make it big.
Coming from Chase Jarvis, the video opens up with a little curiosity about the dirty secret, and he eventually comes to the topic of "How to get the inspiration to do amazing things in photography?" Of course, an inspired mind is a tank full of ideas ready to flow. But how do we stay constantly inspired and do amazing things? The secret is that the inspiration comes not just from intense focus and experimentation in photography but a free-minded, holistic approach to all the fields of life. For instance, if you are a wedding photographer, it is not just about attending wedding conferences, doing photo walks, watching tutorials, reading technical advice and so on. What is more important is to be constantly inspired by people and practices outside the photography industry. I think it truly helps. In my personal experience too, I have noticed a wave of energy when I travel for a while and return to my routine schedule of shooting weddings. My perspectives are wider and my approach becomes all new too. Likewise, no matter what genre of photography it is, the inspiration can come from nature, temples, wildlife, food or any field of passion that has your interest. Only when you go beyond photography and seek inspiration from different avenues, you will get new and fresh perspectives enabling you to create seamless work that stands out. Give the video a watch for the full rundown.
