Michael Quinn used the stages in a journey to structure a body of work during my Arches digital photography workshop. The structure of a journey gave him a creative challenge that generated new ideas and helped focus his efforts. At the end of the workshop, he found that he had created more keeper images in a short time than he had previously. The structure also helped him identify ideas for new images still to be made – ways to expand his creative journey. What’s more, because the images related to one another, he can put the images to many more uses – a slideshow, an exhibit, a book, etc.
What creative challenge could you set for yourself to generate new ideas and increase your productivity?
