Try New Things
My message today is "try new things". Yes there is nothing new under the sun. So others have done something before you. Don't let that stop you from experimenting. I have presented an image here which is a mirrored image. I shot half at Cockatoo Island. I mirrored it and put the halves together. Yes others have done it.
Don't look at my image and tell yourself you can't do this because I've already done it. I saw one of Des' mirrored images and that inspired me to try it. I didn't tell myself that I shouldn't try it because he had already done it. Take inspiration from anywhere that it presents itself.
When you try something someone else has done, try to make it your own. Do something slightly different. It is rewarding to create something new out of something old. Search through your old images and find one you can mirror and see what you get. You might surprise yourself.
Remember there are no rules. Your photography is what you make it.
