365 Days Photo challenge | Day 19

Hey Photographers! Today is the day 19/365 Days Photo Challenge! 


?Photo Tip #19

Change your environment!


How often do you leave the place where you live? Not very often? I understand that work, family and other things always make you postpone trips! Today I want to tell you why it is important to change your environment. I will say more it was so important for me that I gave up my usual way of life in order to be able to travel when I want! From my own experience, I can say that if something does not work out, you want to quit, interest is lost or there is simply not enough inspiration (I'm talking about photography now, but it also works with other things) everyting you should do is to switch. For example, if you are a street photographer and shoot the same things every day, then soon it will get boring and it may happen that you lose interest in photography completely. If you feel this way, want to prevent it or just want to become a better artist from time to time you need to change your environment. If you live in the city go to countryside not necessary far away and vice versa. I live in industrial city so I prefer at least once a week drive to mountains or to any other places with loads of nature to diversify my inner world and refresh my vision! I've prepared some shots from my last trip to small town called Stresa with a beautiful lake Maggiore.



?Photo Examples After/Before Editing:

This simple change can help you stay inspired, look at everyday tasks from another angle, think outside of the box and most important thing is to learn something new. Especially if you want to be a good photographer you should try different types of photography at least to understand what you like the most. And by changing the location you force yourself to think differently, shoot differently therefore learn something new that you can use afterwards in your street photography for example in order to come up with more creative solutions!


*Note, you don't need to go to fancy places to make it work! What really matters is that you can find yourself in any place you never excpect it to happen. In addition there are no bad places on earth each part has it's speacial charm and your endless task as a photographer is to find it.
