1. Take an Overnight Photography Trip
Overnight trips with other photographers make for a great time to talk and explore photography techniques.
2. Write a How to Photography Tutorial
Writing a tutorial is the best test of how well you understand a topic. To start, pick something you feel you know really well.
3. Take Photowalk With a Group
Taking a walk with a camera is a great advice, yet taking a walk with other photographers is better advice.
4. Create or Update Your Portfolio Website
A website is still the best way to display and curate your work. If you don’t have a site or portfolio – make one as cultivating your work in a single place keeps it organized.
5. Assign Yourself Photography Projects
Use a project to fuel creativity and try new concepts. For example take photographs at 1/15 shutter speed or shooting a single color only, letters of alphabet etcÖ
6. Become a Subject of a Photographer
Becoming a subject of another photographer and doing some posing will put you on the other side of the camera. Give it a try even if you are a landscape photographer.
7. Reverse Photography Rules
Once you know the rules – take opportunities to break them! Yes, shoot the opposite of what the rules says to do.
8. Take a Photography Workshop
There are so many workshops and so many topics – there must be a reason. Workshops are not only for beginners they are for all skill levels. I take them to improve in marketing, writing and photography.
9. Re Edit your Older Photographs
Look through photos taken some time ago. I bet that you will find some forgotten gems. Take some of the older photographs and try processing them again.
