A lot of us have little time. What if we were able to be more creative, and be more fulfilled in our photography, in just 5 minutes a day?
The concept is simple: devote 5 minutes a day to your photography.
- Set your phone timer to 5 minutes.
- Switch your phone to airplane mode.
- Photograph your environment for 5 minutes, and don’t limit the number of photos you shoot.
You can shoot with whatever camera. Just use your phone if you don’t like carrying around a big camera.
And in the evening, choose your 1 favorite photo from that 5 minute session, and share it with others. Publish it on your photo blog, or share on social media.
- Study one master photographer for 5 minutes.
- Buy a photo book of a photographer whose work you like, and spend 5 minutes just intaking their images.
- Read inspirational photography quotes for 5 minutes.
- Spend 5 minutes writing down a list of photography project ideas you have.
- Spend 5 minutes giving honest, constructive critique to another photographer, or several photographers. This can be people you follow, or to people who follow you.
For more inspiration on the go, pick up one of the HAPTIC PRESS trifecta books:
