Better Fuji Photos Episode 26: Stuck In a Rut? Give Yourself an Assignment!

We all experience "photographer's block" or get in a rut where we just don't have any interest or desire to get out with our camera. And that's a shame! One way to fix this is to give ourselves photography assignments.

We look at a few ideas for photography assignments in this episode, as well as how to brainstorm your own photography assignments.

Some ideas include:

  • Using a fixed focal length
  • Limit your number of exposures
  • Record JPEG only
  • Focus on a specific subject

To brainstorm your own ideas, use "idea mapping" or "clustering," writing down a broad topic and below that, write down related sub-topics. Keep going until you have a robust list.

Next time you're in a rut and don't know what to photograph, go to the list and give yourself an assignment!
