Cracks Across the Lens

Artists are surrounded by endless inspiration and countless tools, so why do we suffer from creative block and spiraling self-doubt? 

Imagine you are a photographer on set, but you have a crack on your lens. No matter the subject, lighting setup or composition, your image will be impacted because the lens is cracked. You must change the lens which you are looking through — you must change your perspective in order to create.

In this talk, I look at three major creative blockers, ie cracks across the lens, and the perspective shifts to overcome them.
