If you are a photographer, you probably have everything you need to take a fantastic picture. If you’ve lost your inspiration lately, a very simple way to get into the zone and enjoy yourself as an artist is to get some sweet music playing in your ears. Choose your songs wisely. The genre of the music you listen would make a huge difference as well. Types of music can either give you an adrenaline rush or can depress you to the core. Music is a key aspect in the lives of artists and it helps in enhancing creativity and brings unique thoughts to you.
There was a time when I used to waste my time just wandering around with my camera – like a kid practicing aimlessly on his best balance bike. I had no inspiration and was much dejected by my very low productivity. It was then that I got myself to read and came to know the gorgeous science or art of music.
Blues (Muddy Waters):
The kind of change that music could bring to your creative part of the brain is phenomenal. There are certain genres of music that can take you into a different zone altogether. The three most prominent genres that can help you relax and think are – blues, ambient, jazz, classical and trance. Install your outdoor speakers in your studio, put on a comfortable volume and simply blend into the ambiance with the sounds of music. A little relaxation can help you do wonders on a paper.
Music has been related to a number of photographs as well. Some artists have clicked some of the most beautiful pictures listening to Clapton, while others have reached the creative brim with Beethoven plugged into their ears. Music helps you keep your mind fresh.
Clapton MTV Unplugged:
Music lets you think without you begging for thoughts to come to you. The power of music cannot be underestimated. As an artist, if you can fall in love with another form of art, there is no limit to the good you would do to the world being an artist. Photography is a matter of keeping a relaxed mind and being patient with your subjects. With practice you learn to develop better skills but if your life is a stressful mess, there is a little you are going to achieve. Relaxing with music would not just help you click better pictures but would keep you motivated for a very long time.
