Creativity refers to the phenomenon whereby a person creates something new (a product, a solution, a work of art, a novel, a joke, etc.) that has some kind of value. What counts as "new" may be in reference to the individual creator, or to the society or domain within which the novelty occurs. What counts as "valuable" is similarly defined in a variety of ways.
Scholarly interest in creativity ranges widely: Topics to which it is relevant include the relationship between creativity and general intelligence; the mental and neurological processes associated with creative activity; the relationship between personality type and creative ability; the relationship between creativity and mental health; the potential for fostering creativity through education and training, especially as augmented by technology; and the application of an individual's existing creative resources to improve the effectiveness of learning processes and of the teaching processes tailored to them.

Great blog Debbie! Keep up the creative mind my friend (((H)))
thanks for your comments .Creativity is in the eyes of the buyer also,it depends on what they are looking for.It can also be a simple photo that you create,It does not have to be artsy.That is why I put the falcon and the sky photos up.We all have the potential to be creative in our own ways. We are all different.And see things with different eyes If we were all alike this would be a dull world.JMO :)
Whilst being creative we also need to think commercially, we need to provide a clear and concise concept to the folk pucjhasing our images, I am a long way from achieving this but am trying to learn.
We can be as creative as we like with photoshop but unless someone shares our creative vision we are wasting our time!
@ Silent47, whilst I love your images I am struggling to see where many of them can be used, I am far from being sucessful and my port is not that much greater than yours so it is not a criticism form a wise guru just a question aimed at provoking thought.
How about my creativity?Is good enough?
etc...Sorry to "bug" in your post but in this business,i think creativity sucks.I guess,only happy business man,isolated and other c... sells.I mean..come on.What is this?1 month and six days and only 16 sales?With over 200 pics?
A very well written and thought provoking blog. You have got a fantastic portfolio, I just wish I could be that creative. Keep up the good work.
I love your thinking................ I try to think creatively but need some tuition on Photoshop to give expression to some newer ideas. David.
Well written article! Creativity is great and we should use it! Thanks Debbie!
