The next time you're stuck for an idea or just in need of a bit of inspiration, switch off your computer, grab your camera and head for the great outdoors!
You don't need the latest 500 mega-pixel, super zoom camera, just the one you've got on hand will do. You also don't need the perfect subject matter, quality of light or incredible natural phenomena to photograph - just the right attitude will do.
Once you're out on the street don't even worry too much about what it is you're supposed to be photographing, as long as you've got your eyes open, you will naturally be drawn to scenes and objects that are of interest to you. When you've banged off a few shots, you will most probably find that your mind starts to relax a little and eye starts to focus more and you notice details you previously may have missed.
Then by the time you get back to your computer you just might find a whole bunch of ideas have popped into your head and you feel much more refreshed and inspired. If not, at least you've got some fresh air and (hopefully) have some nice shots to post up on Flickr!« back to the frontend blog
