Get Out & Shoot

(lighthearted music) (camera shutter clicks) Module one, done. It's great to listen and hear what I'm saying but, so here are some actionable things you can do. Starting tomorrow. In the next 10 days, try to go shoot at least three times. For next weekend, find someone who you find inspiring and interesting, and take him out shoot some photos of that person. Using Google Maps or satellite views go and discover a new spot in your backyard. Find someone who shoots photos and go shoot with them on a recurring basis. Kind of like every Thursday afternoon, you and I go and shoot. Let's do that for a month. Try being more curious. Find a book or documentary about something that is completely unrelated to this watch it or read it and see if that inspires you. If you're more advanced, odds are you have your habits. And you only go shoot at the same time every day because it's comfortable and you know what you're doing. Try to challenge yourself and go shoot at a time of the day you'd never s...

hoot before. If you're used to shooting a certain type of work, landscapes, sports, well try to shoot something completely different. If you're used to landscape, go shoot someone riding bikes. If you're used to shooting sports well go shoot just landscape completely empty. If you're planning a trip somewhere cool and you think you've done all the research try to find a local there and see what they can bring to your trip. So good luck and I always try to remember that the 10 thousand hour rule exists for a reason. So, I'm always challenging myself, and I hope you do too. We're all in this together.

There's a lot of useful information on how to start up your bussiness or your carreer as a photographer. Great advices, he shows his personal workflow, from the beggining of a shooting till the end. That was what I was looking for. The editing process maybe could be reduced in only one chapter. Worth it.
