There is always a moment of being overwhelmed with your current clients and the active life that is going on. It can seem to be impossible to carve out time, effort and energy to create art for yourself.
The truth of the matter is, you can’t afford not to. If you aren’t careful, you will lose that creativity and ability to create.
Keep your eyes open and try to do one thing a month that is all about you. Maybe you are wanting to learn how to use lighting in a different way. You wouldn’t want to take brand new styles onto a paying session and be afraid of messing it up. Instead, use your team and get a test model (hired or a friend) and practice. Test things out and learn something. You may not be able to use it right this moment, but you are on the way. Soon, it’ll be something you can’t remember never knowing how to do!
What are you going to try testing? I am going to try a new sort of OCF and am so excited!
