Stop The Boredom

As a professional or hobbyist photographer, there is no excuse for boredom.

There are a few things you can be doing on a regular basis:

  • Go out shooting
  • Process or re-process your photographs
  • Watch videos and take classes on photography
  • Meet with other photographers and talk about your passion

I could keep going, but I won’t. I think you understand where I am going with this.

Inspiration is around every corner so go for a walktweet this

There are two things that I think can work very well for when you are bored and looking for something to do.

  1. Try a 3 mile photowalk out for size. Grab your camera and go shoot.
  2. Go to the zoo. Every state in the United States has a zoo. Some have more than a handful.

The photograph above was taken at a zoo a few years ago. I was bored one day, so I opened my archives and re-processed the photo in onOne Software Perfect B&W. The software is pretty new to the market so it’s always fun to experiment in it.

I urge you to stop the boredom and get busy doing.

Thanks for reading and happy shooting,

  1. I don’t see the video link.

    But otherwise love the post. It’s spot on and exactly what I needed to read this morning! I just opened up a folder of photos from October and am working on them now.

    Thanks, buddy.

  2. These things can’t be stressed enough! Great reminder, great post.
