Where Do Great Ideas Come From?


At a Photo Club meeting I attended recently, the President made a comment on another meeting he had attended, where someone in the audience asked the presenter where to find good subjects to photograph. The presenter in question started giving specifics instead of identifying the core issues in question, Attitude and Perspective.

Clients often ask me the same question about ideas, "Where or how does one come up with a good idea for a business or service, for a new product to develop or a theme for an ad?" Oddly enough, the answer is the same; it depends on your attitude and perspective because inspiration is everywhere. Everywhere around you, there are clues to great ideas but you have to be receptive to see or hear them. Once you are open to really listening and observing, you tend to notice things you weren't aware of in the past. It's sometimes uncomfortable to look at the world around you and respond to it differently than others do, but it can be very rewarding.

Is the world around you a place of abundance and opportunity or a difficult barren place? Do you think of life as a constant struggle or an adventure?

Take a look at www.MixZup.com. This retail concept is an idea that originated in a three-year-old's mind. The important point is that Julia's mother Lynne was someone who did not patronize her daughter by saying, "Isn't that cute." and then telling her to put on socks that match. She really listened to her daughter, considered the factors that prompted Julia to express her individualism by wearing socks that do not match and recognized it as an opportunity. Children, with their ability to think outside of the limitations most of us have developed and placed on ourselves as adults, are great at coming up with innovative, unconventional ideas.

To get back to the example of the photographer; often businesses tell me they need photos and their son, daughter, or spouse has an expensive camera?that's great, but it's not about the equipment. It's about the eye behind the camera and the ability to be open to recognising a great shot.

It doesn't matter how much business training or ability you have if you use it as an excuse to stop listening and observing. If you close your eyes and ears to the opportunities around you, you are limiting your life, not just your business opportunites.

How many successful businesses would never have gotten off the ground if the owner considered the fact that they had no business experience or no money?

Today, make a decision to think of business as a series of adventures and ideas waiting to be implemented.

However the one thing that no camera is able to do, no matter how much money you have spent buying it, is compose a photo that is attractive to the eye.

A Strange Course of Photography
I have come to the conclusion that study and commitment are indispensable, but to become an artist we must have a great Consciousness, we must be a better person. Unfortunately, this society does not teach us this last thing, and if we own it from birth we are lucky, if we do not possess it we can do the only thing we do not learn from today's life, we must study what we will never find in school. Since ever, we have been taught that science has little to do with religion, with spirituality. Well, what we will never find at school is just something that speaks of a union of these two things: the Spirituality explained through Science. As far as I can know of Spirituality and Science, not being an engineer, a scientist, or a religious, or a spiritualist, I can try to understand simple concepts of both spirituality and science, but also through easy concepts I discovered that these two subjects could be considered a single subject, a subject able to explain very interesting meanings that can be used in life. In this phase, I will tell you how they can be applied to photography.
