Just Shoot It! Getting through the volume will make you a better photographer. Give yourself a deadline to start shooting right away. Do a picture-a-day blog. Schedule a two-hour block every week to go out and shoot. Work on your project. If you don’t have a project, go shoot on the street.
Exercise: Choose one subject and challenge yourself to take 40 completely different compositions of the same subject or scene. Stay in one location and play with lens-to-subject distances and framing. It will stretch your visual muscles and make it easier to try new angles on future shoots. This exercise will get you shooting, moving around more, and it will help you to “work it,” the next step in your journey toward becoming a great photographer. Just shoot it.
