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.
