Creatives of every form and medium, from all <a href="http://www.tazz1.com.au/">walks of life</a> and for as long as we can remember will all have one thing in common - the dreaded blank. Call it writers block, drawing a blank on a new canvas or a lack or idea in photography. No matter the medium, the creative will inevitably have to go through this.
The answer is to just get started. It might not be a masterpiece initially but the simple fact of getting yourself moving, drawing, writing and clicking will get the juices flowing again. Photographic creatives have a slight advantage up our sleeves, we can see tangible results immediately which will further stimulate our senses creatively.
One deceptively simple method that we have in our arsenal is the power of the theme. Working within a theme allows us to then concentrate on creative methods of expressing the theme rather than drawing a blank from the world at large.
To get you started or at least get you thinking about it, below are a few samples of themes that can be used as a guide or starting point.
There are heaps of hidden gems still around town, regardless of where you live. Doing some urban exploration safely is a great theme and there are plenty of social media sites that will help you get started.
Pick one particular color and then click away. It can be that color in fruit, on the street, in the sky, water - your only limit is your imagination. Don't forget, color could actually mean lack of color. Think tones in black and white.
Pick a street, any street. Preferably one with lots of foot traffic and then go forth and have some fun recording the daily goings on around you.
Whether it's food at home, from a food van, restaurant or perhaps the making of a beautiful dish.
There's always an abundance of sometimes weird, wacky and often wonderful signs all around us. Experiment!
If you're lucky enough to be able to get to cities that have some older buildings, stand up and take notice. There are some beautiful buildings with unbelievable architecture design both within and outside.
This one is always a go-to theme for most. That beautiful part of the day called golden hour. That's the hour at dawn and the hour just before dusk. Beautiful colors should remove even the most stubborn of blocks!
