Creativity - and how to get some
I am wondering how creativity works in my brain. I assume like other photographers out there like me, I walk a similar path for at least 5 out of 7 days so learning to see differently when I carry my camera that I again decided not to leave behind is sometimes like trying to find the needle in the haystack.
So instead of listing the usual suspects of what you can do with your camera, I looked up a research article instead. Cavdarbasha and Kurczak (2017) found that in order to solve a problem all you need to do is: "Push your brain to draw connections between seemingly different ideas, as creativity is just thinking outside the box—anyone can do that."
Okay - and here are the usual suspects: make double exposures, use macro lenses, look for patterns and textures, and find a branch - framing can save a photo from a bleaker existence.
