Cultivating Creativity through Photography

The best photography courses bring out the creativity in everyone

"Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort."

Franklin D. Roosevelt 

Woman looking at the world in a different way.

Creativity matters

Creativity matters - a lot. 78% of college-educated professionals wish they had more creative ability (Adobe Creativity & Education Research). Creativeness is a vital self-skill, but it's even more critical for businesses to have employees brimming with creativity. Staff who are creative find it much easier to turn new and imaginative ideas into reality, they become very good lateral thinkers. 

 

Creativity is the ability to perceive the world in new ways, find hidden patterns, make connections between seemingly unrelated phenomena, and then generate solutions for that. Imagination is purely based on a single process: thinking; creativity is unique in that it involves two fundamental processes: thinking, then producing.

Creativity can be learned

68% of education majors say creativity is something you can learn (Adobe Creativity & Education Research). Unfortunately, many people grow into adulthood thinking that creativity is something that only those with money or an "arty" background can have. Even worse, they often believe that all creative outlets require natural talent and exceptional skills learned over many years.

 

Clearly, a painter needs to know the intricacies of various painting methods and a seamstress certainly needs to have an intimate knowledge of threads, needles. But you don't need to spend 10,000 hours learning to be a creative and lateral thinker. We can start that process after just one course with us!

Photography is an easy way to learn to be creative

There is one area of creativity where excellent skills are not required before getting good results; that area is photography. Anyone can be creative with a camera and get terrific images instantly. Photography is the democratization of creativity in a tiny box.

 

There is no rocket science in getting great shots; it's hugely about where you point your lens. After that, we just need to let the camera do most of the heavy lifting. The fundamental elements of photography are easily taught to people at all levels, no matter their background.
