I consider myself a creative risk taker, one who’s always curious about learning and experiencing new things. But like anyone, it’s easy for me to fall into comfortable habits, including within my creative inclinations.
At the thrift store a few days ago, I found a beautiful, pyramid-shaped jewelry holder for just a few dollars. It inspired me to create a sort of intergalactic photo. For the compositing work, I did quick Google and YouTube searches to find this image and this image. An hour or so (plus a few mild anxiety attacks) later, and voila! The beauty above was born.
It can be scary to try new things, but incorporating thrifted finds in your adventure lets you take risks without breaking the bank. What’s one thing you want to learn to do, but are afraid to try? Now is a great time to push fear aside and give it a go.
