Fix Creative Fatigue and Go on Safari

© Rick Sammon
I have two articles in May/June issue of Digital Photo magazine. One on fixing creative fatigue and one on digital wildlife photography. Check 'em out.

One idea to fix creative fatigue: play with plug-ins and awaken the artist within. Above I used the Polaroid Transfer effect in Nik Color Efex Pro to remove some of the true color from the scene.

When you remove some of the true color, you remove some of the reality. When you remove some of the reality, your picture can look more creative and artistic.

One idea for wildlife: shoot wide and make a photograph that shows the animal in its environment.

In the shot above I applied the Spicify filter in Toapz Adjust (another favorite plug-in) to the sky.

Explore the light,

P.S. Here's some more thoughts on getting inspired and motivated.
