My Favorite Way To Come Up With Ideas

Everyone has their own ritual for coming up with ideas for photo shoots. They all seem to have something in common, you can’t force ideas.

I have a way of forcing myself that is not forcing myself. It always results in a plethora of ideas, and they are always fresh. Basically I just start drawing on paper, lines shapes, and with nothing in mind. In the same way that you can make familiar objects come to life in looking at clouds, your brain will try to make some sense of the madness.

In the process of making randomness, your brain adds order, and you will actually see something in the chaos. This is great because it is often VERY suprising what you see. It can be something you would have never thought of on your own.

How Do You Do It?

Amelia says the shower is the perfect time for ideas to come to her, what works for you?? .
