    Thanks – great insight into creativity – inspirational. Although my interests are less about creating a “work of art” and more about capturing good quality images of wildlife, landscapes, travel destinations, etc., your insight is still relevant in planning how to “tell the story” behind the image effectively and in a way that is “more interesting” than just a “snapshot” (although snapshots have their place if one is just trying to record what was seen). My biggest challenge is being creative while keeping up to a (fast moving) group of people on an travel excursion so that I come home with more than “just snapshots” with a bunch of tourists blocking part of the view in every picture. Thanks to my wife keeping track of me I have not (yet) been left behind when the group moved on and I am still immersed in taking pictures with creative perspectives.

      Thank you, Wayne! In the upcoming videos, you’ll see more of what you’re looking for – ideas that will help you capture the images you seek on your travels. Now, as for how to keep up with a fast moving group of tourists, it sounds like your wife has that all sorted!

    Thanks so much for these videos. I had to pause the video and grab a couple of screen shots because you answered a question that has been troubling me for some time. My current projects include coffee table books showing scenes from Washington, Idaho and Montana. I was concerned that my work was of interest only to myself, and that any resulting coffee table book would be extremely idiosyncratic. But you have helped me to see that my vision is unique and valuable despite (or because of) that unique character. I needed to hear that.

    1. creatalyst says:

      Bryan – that’s excellent news! Indeed your vision/voice IS unique and needs to be shared. I’ll go deeper on that concept in the last video in particular. Really happy this helped provide some clarity for you!
