Ever have one of those days when your just sitting around the house not really doing anything, but you know you would like to be doing something creative. No matter what it is just something to get the creative juices flowing.
Well I for one have those days more than not, so what I do when I feel one of those days coming on I shoot the photos I inspire to be hired for. I tend to roll play with myself, I play the art director and the photographer, and I act as if I am really on a big shoot. Call me crazy, but trust me it works.
I hired myself to shoot some photos of the Nike sb Janoski sneakers. A very simple, but effective self project to get those juices going. So hire yourself and shoot what you inspire to be hired to shoot.
