Dear photographer wanting to branch out
I think one of the most important things to do when you work in photography is to make sure you have a project going for yourself. A project that you get excited about working on, for little monetary reward during your valuable off-time. It helps with your photographic stamina, it guides you to your voice and frankly its often your best work. Burning out is a real thing for photographers, and one of the best medications I know is just that: the personal project. It can either require a lot of effort or barely any at all, it just needs to come from the heart. That is what makes it beautiful.
