i was just reading over Chase Jarvis’ blog. Chase is an amazing photographer, and he’s always has great tid-bits of advice. over the last couple of months he’s been writing about the creative process and the work & drive that it takes to keep your creativity fresh.
the “Creative Gap” is the difference between the artists visual concept of a project and the actual end result that is created. at times that gap feels like the Grand Canyon, and those times usually makes most of us want to throw our camera against a brick wall. i know i do. the solution… (a grueling one at that), is to submerse yourself in work. making projects and deadlines for yourself. working through the brick wall after brick wall, never giving up. Chase found a good video from Ira Glass explaining both the problem and the solution very well.
