Being too proper kills creativity – PhotoCamp Video

My attitude about creativity began when I realized I was more concerned with how someone spoke and not so involved with what they were saying. Mr. Pinnell’s proper enunciation and its power often distracted me from listening to what he had to tell me.

For photographers, this often means we get stuck in the mechanics of making photographs instead of concentrating on content and creativity.

Master the mechanics but don’t let that process distract you from being creative.
