Sometimes you sit there at your desk, mousing and pounding away on the keyboard, writing blog posts, editing images, surfing the web, tweeting, reading Facebook and generally racking your brain about how to improve your photography.
How do I know you do that? Because I do it too.
However, that’s not where creative ideas come from. They don’t live at your desk, They live out there in the world, hiding in all the places where you love to be, and in the places where you’ve never been before.
They’re out there waiting for your to come find them, and the only way to discover them is to get away from your desk and go outside, where you’ll feel the wind on your face and the sun on your back.
So, next time you feel bogged down with your creativity, just get up and head into the outdoors. Go take a walk, get on the bike, or clip into a pair of skis. Don’t even take your camera. Just take your empty, tired brain, and I promise you, by the end of your little excursion, it will be full of new ideas and creative inspiration again.
