Somehow, whenever a photographer goes asking for "how to get inspired", or when a photographer offers up advice for inspiration, the answer is always either a piece of gear, a technical method, or a gimmick. Are you uninspired? I know how you feel.
But I know what you ought to do, to get inspired!! I DO! Try macro photography!
Or grab a wide-angle lens!
Have you thought about trying a graduated neutral density filter?!! It's opens up a whole new way to see!
Try a Lee Big Stopper ND filter for super long exposures!
Buy a drone, get inspired by how things look FROM ABOVE!
Use a wide angle macro lens and a 10 stop ND filter ON a drone! Use a drone with a wide angle macro lens to photograph ten things within ten feet of you in the next ten seconds! Because the way to get inspired is to buy more stuff!!!!!
I don't know why this is the case, it has something to do with the ways camera owners view photography. There's a strong tendency to
seek technical solutions to creative problems, and there always has been. If you can't solve it by buying a widget, perhaps you can
solve it with a step-by-step recipe, and if that doesn't work surely a widget AND a recipe will work!
The trouble is that when you're feeling uninspired what you're lacking is an idea.
A widget or a method is not a guaranteed failure here, to be sure. Sometimes a fresh view through a new lens really will produce
an idea. Not, however, all that often.
Inspiration can be a lot cheaper. Try asking yourselves these questions:
What is the best thing in the world? What is the worst? What is the silliest? What do I believe in? What in this world is most precious to me? If I could change one thing in this world, what would it be?
Really, any Big Questions. You can probably make up another 50 of your own. When you've worked out something that matters to you, some story you want to tell, then work how to to take a picture of that.
And then take that picture.
