Finding the time and keeping a list.

We've all hit that burnout point in photography, when you just don't feel like picking up the camera.

The importance of keeping a log of ideas as a photographer cannot be stressed enough, especially as I begin to embark on a journey to get a decent turnover from stock photography. 365 project has made me see things in a different light.

When you're struggling for inspiration a list of photo ideas can always save the day and mine is building up nicely. this post, I'm still trying to find my style as a photographer so I'm keen to try as many things out as possible. Ffffl*ckr (which is a great little web app that you should definitely check out) every day I have been religiously going through the photos available and making a note of anything I want to try out. This photo has given me an idea to pursue over the weekend, and I've found another hundred or so that I've made a note of.

Take what you can when you can and anything else make a note of.

By testing my photography with new styles/ideas I am constantly stumbling across props/locations/ideas for stock photography.

There's a great article here by John Lund who talks about taking photos for the enjoyment of it and hopefully getting some useful stock images out of it, and whilst I would encourage that, creative photos aren't always the best for stock photography.

For any type of photography I feel this is very relevant.
