365 Days Photo challenge | Day 17

Hey Photographers! Today is the day 17/365 Days Photo Challenge! 


?Photo Tip #17

Take pictures on the way home!


Today I have a great tip/exercise for people who want to shoot more but always procrastinate! The exercise is pretty straightforward, you don't need to come up with any photo ideas in order to got shooting. Everything you need to do is to have the camera with you on your way home from university, work etc... Second step is instead of going by public transport, take a walk. If the way home is too long divide it on peaces. Your task is to have at least 30 mins of walking so you have time to take some pics! The last step is to shoot everything you like. The point of this exercise is to begin to see the meaning in things and perhaps if you're really lucky capture something unique! Let me explain a bit more detailed. When we go to take pictures in a certain place, we think a lot about this place, begin to examine things around us, think about how and what match together etc... In simple words, we spend time preparing. Doing this exercise you don't need to be prepared or have brilliant ideas, everything you need is charged battery! Let me show you some pictures I've taken using my everyday road home.



?Photo Examples After/Before Editing:

What I like the most about this exercise is the element of surprise! You never know what you will see today, maybe you will have a chance to photograph your favorite car or a very stylish person or even some crime and feel like you're reportage photographer!


The other great thing is if you're sharing photos online, you'll always have a content to post. As you can see these 30 mins can be really beneficial for you not just in a way of becoming better as a photographer but also have more calm and relaxed mind since you dedicate more time to yourself!


*Remember, the more often you do it the better and the greater odds are you will end up with a shot that probably bring your career to completely new level. If you do this exercise once a month don't expect big results!
