8. Some photos won't work out and you'll hate them.
This isn't just project related I'm afraid, this happens ALL the time. Its a part of the creative process I guess.
9. Plan ahead with prompts if you are feeling stuck or blocked...
Is something there that shouldn't be? Should something be there that isn't? If you're taking colour photos - what colours are catching your eye? Pick a colour and look for it.
If you're using black and white - what textures can you see? What contrasts are there - light against dark? Have you been here before, if so, whats different? If not, whats new and exciting?
Look at people, look at buildings, look at small details, look at the big picture, look up, look down, take a deep breath...
Try and think of things you like to photograph and look for them - for me its dogs, flowers and textures. Think of things you struggle to take photos of and take them - for me that is people definitely. I didn't do this much but if you're stuck then its an option.
9a. Plan ahead with getting out there!
Walk somewhere, visit somewhere new, plan adventures on your weekends... try and think ahead as much as you can in terms of getting out there, visiting interesting places and keeping yourself excited about the project. Don't make things a lot harder for yourself by getting bored of taking the same photos over and over.
10. Take the ugly/bad photos
I guess this follows on from the very first point I made... but as time as moved on, I've realised that the photos I've learnt the most from during my project has been the ones where I've pushed myself to take photos I would previously never have taken. These photos and bad days are an opportunity to push your comfort barriers and see what else you can do in more challenging situations. Ultimately what you learn from these days will contribute to your good days and amazing photos. Sometimes learning what you love means learning the things you don't first...
And finally...and kind of obviously... ALWAYS have a camera on you and take a damn photo every day!
