    Default Podcast Suggestion- Finding worthy subjects

    In the middle of winter, when it's 20 below outside. Or when one doesn't have the budget for professional models, extravagant costumes/props, exotic destinations abroad, etc. Or when one just has the photographer's version of writer's block... Help me, I'm there....all of the above...

    A good topic F8 - I'm way behind on the podcast list, but this one is added

    Let's see if you can get some ideas straight up though so I'll copy this into the general forum

    Thanks!

    I don't know. I think every subject is worthy. Just depends on your point of view. I think if you were to move this topic to a general forum, there would be several that could give you ideas right now.

    For instance still life of a carefully arranged favorite knick knack, bowl, basket or vase with a piece of fruit using natural window light and homemade reflectors, and a tripod. Tissue paper or fabric hung on a wall, a foot or two behind gives color.

    Lol, Mad Aussie just did a silly series of photos with a stuffed snake.

    I think the disconnect that happens in some of us is that everything around us on day to day basis (especially when bound indoors during winter in some colder climates) seems so boring. But you nailed it really- the ordinary can be made extraordinary with a bit of inspiration and technique... that's what I was after. But for those of us lacking the imagination or inspiration- we're hungry for new ideas!

    Maybe this IS better just as an idea thread that we could all answer instead of a podcast.

    How's this - for now I WILL move this to the general forum and after people contribute, If you still want me to do this as a podcast in the future i will. This will get you good instant feedback.

    Let me know in the new copied thread - thx - Marko
