Is anyone else suffering through winter with me right now? Well, if it’s winter where you live and you are anything like me then you probably want to stay out of the cold whenever possible and might not have left your house for the past few days (kidding). Regardless, cold weather often stops me from going out to look for shots to take; in fact, it’s quite common for many photographers to feel like they are in a slump over the long, dark, winter months. However, this doesn’t mean that you are doomed to a bleak, photoless season spent indoors. Make the most of it! Today, I challenge you to go around the inside of your house and look for something neat to take a picture of. Personally, I recommend that you try to capture some gritty details (maybe you could even experiment with HDR), or try to make something common look abstract. You never know what you’ll come up with. Oh, and just a little tip from me: attics, basements, and other places with old nic-nacs stored away can be gold mines! So, get up from your bed (but stay in your pajamas) and go exploring in the comfort of your own home. If you do take any pictures, please post a link in the comments. I would love to see what you come up with!
Now, stay warm and go make yourself some more hot chocolate.
