Everyone gets there at one point or another. “I don’t want to drive far to photograph new scenery and I’ve already visited everything worth photographing here.” You get lazy and lose motivation to shoot on your free time.
That’s the moment you need to kick your creativity into gear. The truth is you could photograph the same exact scene a million different ways. No two photos are ever the same. Always train your eye to view a subject from various perspectives. Best of all, you may capture a photo of the scene you like more.
A perfect example of why no two photos are ever the same!
Photography is first and foremost an art. If you don’t put in a creative effort, your resulting work is going to be lackluster.
