Tip #16: There's No Place Like Home

Thursday, November 1, 2007

Someone once said, "Write about what you know." Well I say, "Photograph what you know." Look around you. What great things are a part of your world?

Maybe you have an interesting hobby that you can use for inspiration. Or you have a couple of cute kids who enjoy posing for you. Or you might live in a tourist destination. I happen to live in the third most popular tourist destination in the USA (depending on which magazine you read) and the oldest state capital - Santa Fe, New Mexico. I can walk down the street and have 400-year old adobes to photograph, like this turquoise window photo that I just added to my Dreamstime portfolio. Yes, I am quite fortunate, but I'll bet you are too.

What's special about your everyday life? Or what's absolutely ordinary? Inspiration and photographs can spring from the most common sources. And popular, saleable photographs are probably right in your own home. Here are a few suggestions:
- shoes

- your favorite recipes

- still lives composed of fruit

- your shell collection

- game pieces

- close-up details of your computer

See? It's easy. Sit down and brainstorm a list and before you know it - you'll have ideas and photographs poring forth in abundance.
