Why Photographers Should Incorporate Lots Of Outdoor Activities
Whatever work you do, it needs a certain amount of passion, dedication and respect in order to be done well and digital photography is no different. However, unless there is a certain amount of diversion woven into that set of ethics, there is in no way that you can ever hope to achieve good results.
We are, after all, related to Jack or Jill, and therefore must have some amount of play, instead of all work; otherwise it will just make us dull.
The same goes with us photographers. Moreover, our eye is not our eye; our eye is our camera lens.
However, unless the real eye is given some amount of respite, there is in no way that either eye will perform well. See, one eye will be tired and will not co-operate with the other eye and therefore give disastrous results.
In that event, it is pitched best if you go ahead and embrace outdoors as well as you embrace indoors. Let’s see why.
Discovery and respite
Since you already have a keen eye, how about making your body keen as well? Unless your body supports your system, nothing will ever work out well. You have to remember that the best photographs are those which are rare and found in the last place on earth.
Exploring the situation outside will certainly give you plenty of ideas as to what can be mixed and matched in order to get the best photos.
Following that, how about mixing business with pleasure and a little bit of exercise? Come on, we all know how a little bit of exercise helps everybody to be flexible. So join a group or take comfort in solace and set out, methodical bohemian style!
Ideas for photos
For starters, it is advised that you buy a bike. Nothing stimulates and gives ideas more than some mean biking. The idea is to keep it fresh every day.
Explore new trails and areas every day. Go to places which you never though existed and find how many great ideas for photos can be dished out.
More than just ideas and good locations, keeping you fit are important. If not for anything else, at least for the sake of attaining great photos! This might need a bit of hiking or running or exerting yourself in ways in order to click.
What if the perfect idea for a photo is present right on top of a hill? Would you rather climb or simply choose to ignore and find something else?
We all know the answer to that!
The new kind of photography
If not exercise, it is still recommended to engage in outdoorsy activities. How about dating, if that is your idea of being out? At least that way you will be entertained and even get to brush up on your people skills.
However, do not make it a sit down date. Instead, go to a park or maybe to some spot which you have never been before.
Exchange ideas with your date. Nine out of ten times, people who are outdoorsy have plenty of location visits to exchange and this might also give you a chance to broaden your horizon.
Nevertheless, instead of all these stereotypical ideas, how about spicing photography with adventure?
Yep buddies, adventure photography is increasingly becoming popular and why not? There has never been a better time to mix business with pleasure than that time being right now. So grab whatever equipment you need and join a group.
For starters, clicking photos of people climbing rocks or the whole journey of going upward definitely needs to be told. What better to tell a story than with photos, right?
Another well documented and yet plenty of unexplored avenues come in the form of wildlife photography. There is so much to see, so much to tell and so much to know that this appalling journey will surely change your life. Get in tune with your animalistic instinct and follow it further.
Watching birds is yet another delightful experience. Nothing will charm and indeed baffle you more than watching those chirpy birds flying around. The whole thing is exciting and loaded with possibilities.
And finally, it is time to pitch underwater photography. Nothing compares or comes even close to this really pleasant and enchanting experience. A must do which will surely serve your purpose.
