Take to the skies.
If you’re ready for an exciting change of perspective, aerial photography — both urban and landscape photos taken from the sky — can be an amazing way to reveal geometry in the world. Street grids, farm land, sand dunes, and hills can all form entrancing shapes when viewed from afar.
Share your eye for geometry.
To expand your horizons even more, create a profile on an online photography community, like Instagram or Behance, and post work regularly. You’ll be able to talk with other creators about their work and get feedback on your own.
Exposure to other photographs in your genre can help inspire you to branch out. “It’s easy to get into a rut where you’re just repeating the same images over and over again,” says George. “Instead I try to play around with different subjects, different angles, different colors, that sort of thing.”
The first step is to just take some time to appreciate the world around you with a camera in hand. “I’ve learned to really wade into these little moments deeply, spending time just looking closely,” says Chambliss. “That’s all I do. I just pay attention.”
