I’ve been listening to a podcast called Creative Pep Talk, by @andyjpizza and it is absolutely stellar. The things that Andy says on there really have spoken to me in many ways and have made me rethink about the way I create photographs. There are many things I could go on about that he’s talked about, but the one I’ve thought a lot about recently is Create art that matters, and being authentic. It can be easy overthinking about the things we make, or feeling like we don’t have our own style. But the most important thing about what we do as creatives is creating something that resonates with yourself, as well as resonating with your audience, and that will inspire them in some way. Even if it is just making them think “that’s a pretty photo” or something bigger such as “that photo made me feel something deep, and has inspired me to get out and explore that place myself.” Whether it’s a big or small feeling that the audience is having, at least you’re making them feel something. Hopefully this makes sense. I’m not the best with putting things into words. If you are any kind of creative, go check out The Creative Pep Talk because it is a game changer and will give you my thoughts like this, that will truly make you care about your art even more than you already do.
