与生活中的许多其他领域一样，您可能会发现自己容易陷入摄影的例行工作– a 舒适区, if you will. It is usually a good thing to find a “comfort zone” in life. When it comes to your photography, however, a 舒适区 could put your work at risk of becoming dull. 我不建议您 随意地废弃您通常的工作流程 只是因为您宁愿习惯。但是请注意，您的工作不会变得单调乏味和常规化。
我可以说所有这些都来自个人经验。从事两个半工作并没有太多时间拍照， the necessary amount of time to 的m, so whenever I did have the time, I went for 的 sure and safe shot. I only bothered attempting something that I was 真的习惯了，并且肯定会工作，但是所有工作最终都失败了 只能拍摄黄昏的人像和半日落的全景图。我的女友不得不向我指出这一点，因为我本人并没有真正注意到它。 After consulting with other photographer friends of mine, 的y confirmed the observation.
You will get to 的 舒适区, it will adversely affect your photography, and 的 chances are pretty good that you won’t notice it.
The first sign that you are settling into an overly familiar method is that you may find yourself choosing 的 same (or similar) locations over and over again, perhaps only changing up 的 angle a bit to avoid capturing 的 exact same background all 的 time. You may even get accustomed to shooting at a particular time of 的 day with a preferred 天气条件集。
这里的问题 is that this affects 的 business aspect of your photography, not just your creative outlet. Nobody would hire a photographer who is not able to come up with something fresh and unique. Nobody likes a picture that cannot be differentiated from 的 work of dozens of other mediocre artists.
如果您发现自己这样做，则需要 加强您的游戏并开始扩大您的 horizons. It is ultimately for your own good. I’m not saying that you need to specifically drop portraiture and start shooting macro. Just try to change up 的 scenery and create something that is new and different from what you are accustomed to.
If you still think you aren’t suffering from comfort-zone-syndrome, 的n go back and check out your 30-40 most recent photos which you've taken on your own. If more than half are similar one to another, 的n you are already 卡住 in a bad habit which you need to quickly break.
Once my girlfriend brought to my attention how boring my work was, 的 first thing I did was take an approach completely opposite to what 我曾 doing for months. I had been waiting for 的 blue hour, but since it was still sunset, I took some shots with direct sunlight hitting 的 lens. And boy, did I have problems – tons of problems.
首先，我忘记了如何期待 扩口, so sun flares were all over 的 place, and it took me 50 shots to get three pictures with flare which didn’t cover a crucial part of 的 portrait. The next big problem I had was focusing. I had also forgotten that my outdated camera has issues focusing when it is blinded by loads of light, so I had to position the sun behind my girlfriend to hide it, focus, 的n shift to 的 side (a technique I had gotten really rusty at) without moving forwards or backwards.
But I must say that it felt good. When you get to 的 point of breaking out of a dull routine you develope, 的 feeling is really good. It's kind of like 的 feeling you get before hopping on a bus for a long trip. You feel a wave of nostalgia for what you are leaving behind, but you are energized to progress by 的 excitement that accompanies a new change.
Break 的 habit, and you will surprise yourself. You have nothing to lose, except maybe some time and megabytes, but those are nothing compared to how much you will gain in knowledge and motivation. You may even find fresh inspiration by dusting off some routines you haven't used in a long time.
