Alain Briot On Inspiration and Creativity

Photo by Alain Briot

If you’re new to photography, just like your brand new DSLR, you might find it useful to read this article on inspiration and creativity.

Photographer Alain Briot over at Luminous Landscape has posted his article, “Exercising your Creativity,” as part of his “Reflections on Photography & Art” series.

He says inspiration without creativity is like staring at a blank canvas. Creativity without inspiration, on the other hand, results in unsatisfying output, in artwork that goes into all sorts of different directions but lacks a specific and unifying source of inspiration.

Then he goes on to write that we can all be creative and that we can indeed develop our own creativity. If you find yourself staring at a blank canvas and your new DSLR is gathering dust, do yourself a favor by reading this inspiring essay by Alain.
