Every so often, you see these ideas from a friend or a website or a magazine that just blows your mind and makes you go “Why didn’t I think of that?”
The image above is from Underground New York Public Library. This guy takes images of people reading in the NY Subway and posts them, along with the name of the books and links to their corresponding library information. What an amazing idea. In addition, the images are well done and show a reality in the world.
It makes me think about personal projects that people can do. Ways to use your camera and photographic eye to do something for you. Something that may not profit but that you can actually maybe turn around and make money from.
What if the photographer did a show at a gallery? Invited people that he shot and had them invite their friends?
There are things out there that have not been touched on. Think outside of the box and do something you want to just for the heck of it. You’ll get joy from it and may even make some cash as well.
