6 Photography Motivation Ideas

To motivate yourself to make new photos, or to find joy in photography — this is our goal. Simple ideas:

1. Make videos

Making videos is a great way to motivate your photos. After all … what is “video”? It is just moving photos.

Record and video yourself doing anything mundane! It is all good. Recording all motion is good.

2. Move more

I’ve found this to be true:

The amount of photos I make is directly proportional to the amount I’ve moved around that day.

For example, whether I went to workout, to the local farmers market, walked around the block, visited the park, etc.

3. Shoot textures around the house

With our new COVID quarantine lifestyle, it seems that we have a lot of things we can just shoot around the house. I suggest photographing any interesting textures you see at home:

Textures can be your bed folds, your food, or random decorations you have at home.

4. Screenshot your videos

To the prior point, watch videos you’ve recorded, and watch it full screen, and shoot screenshots of stills you like.

5. Print and frame your photos at home

The joy of selecting a photo to print, then printing it and framing it at home. You can just order some cheap prints on Costco Photo Center online, and for frames I really like IKEA frames, or any other random frames you can procure.

6. Go out and eat out (if possible)

Insofar much as you can — go eat out, get takeout, the local farmer market, etc. You will see more, experience more and be in a position in which you will see and discover new things to photograph!
