Experimentation Fosters Growth
"It's not an experiment if you know it's going to work"
Attempting to push myself out of a creative rut, I decided to grab some friends and do a little experimenting. We have the same strategy for the majority of our shoots, but it was time to change it up.
Side bar, I think it's funny when photographers say, "oh I'm awkward in front of the camera, I'm better behind it"... LIES!!! Sara of Pink Feather Photography is the most adorable thing on this planet which made my experiment so much easier lol.
I did a lot on this shoot that I wouldn't normally do...
- I shot at a new location
- I shot during golden AND blue hour
- I used my Canon 35 vs my Sigma 35
- I used a smoke bomb (probably shouldn't have now that I think about it) Oops.
- Used a whole different set of posing prompts trying to foster playful intimacy
It was amazing, it was fun, and this little experiment got my creative juices going again. So I encourage you, if you're in a rut, try something new. You won't be sorry.
