Plus a few of my own resources
As much as we hate to admit it, the creative rut is inevitable. At some point, the idea tree stops bearing as much fruit as we've come to expect.
If you find yourself in that place, Digital Photography School shares 10 tips for finding your mojo and bringing back the magic. As I was reading, I couldn't help but notice that we have resources to help with many of their suggestions. After you've read the full list, try these:
#2 – Hang out with other photographers - Try my Meetup, Shutterbug Excursions. We get together a few times a month in the Washington, DC area to shoot & share. If you are in another city, I'm sure you can find a Meetup close to you. Just search photography and your zip code.
#3 – Start a new project - Here are seven ideas. Listen to Tom Sperduto's webinar for other suggestions. When you find one you like, join my Google + Photo Projects community. You'll find a group of photographers encouraging each other through Project 365s and other personal photo project.
#5 – Share your work, start a blog! - Here are 12 options to share your photos.
#6 – Page through a good photography book - Check out the PhotoTour DC Amazon Store for some great reading options.
#8 – Teach a child - And if you can't, consider supporting Critical Exposure. You will help teach a disadvantage student how to take photos, tell stories, and advocate for education reform.
#9 – Write a list of techniques you’ve never tried and give it a shot! - Check out the 21 Composition Challenges
