Next week many people will have a little extra time off for the holidays and hopefully be enjoying family, friends and some seriously good food. Just remember one thing…take a few photos during the break! Use some of that free time to go to your local park and just photograph what appeals to you. No rules, no end use, no right or wrongs, just shoot. Who cares if you throw them all out? When I’m working in the office I regularly take a few hour break and take one camera/lens, and go out and shoot. Just going through the motions, thinking in a creative space, practicing camera craft…this a good thing. As I say on all my workshops, the process is as important as the end result. You might get a great shot, or nothing at all. But your creative self is excercised for a few hours, and this will help your photography down the road. Happy Holidays!
