Here's what we''ll discuss!

  • Inspiration is Mimicking a Feeling; Copying is Recreating Several Details
  • One Detail is Fine, All Details is Wrong

"
When we start photography, it’s easy to see things very cut and dry, particularly when it comes to inspiration. When we are new to creating, it’s really easy to feel like you are the first one to do anything and, because of this, if you see a similar image, you might feel like someone is mimicking you. And while that can definitely be something that happens, there’s also a lot of trends and inspiration within photography.

So! If you are a new photographer worrying about the difference between copying and inspiration - whether you’re the inspiration or looking for inspiration yourself - this podcast is absolutely for you! Cannot wait to share my thoughts on a super complex topic with you!"

Want to work on this topic this week?

Start listing ways your work is unique! It might be hard to come up with the first couple of ways that your work stands out amongst other photographers but, once you get going, you'll have a long list in no time.

See you next week!
