Be creative today

Creative | Portland | 2017

It’s the start of of a new week, albeit a short one here in Germany, as we’re looking forward to two bank holidays on Tuesday and Wednesday, to which I’ll be adding two days of much needed vacation. Throw in Halloween tomorrow, and there will be plenty of opportunity for photography the next days.

November is coming up, in Central Europe commonly dubbed as the most dreary, grey and dullest month of the year. To bridge the time until the start of the festive season, why don’t you take on some creative projects during November, whether it is taking your camera and go shooting some things you haven’t before (find ideas in my Instant Inspiration series in my Learning Center), improve your post processing skills, compile a photo book of your work, or try something completely different like sketching or sculpturing. Brighten up your November by doing something creative.

For some more “creative” Street Photo impressions from Portland’s Saturday Market continue after the jump…

The above photos are impressions from my visit to Portland’s Saturday Market last weekend. Taken with my Olympus PEN-F and the mZuiko 14-150mm F/4-5.6 Travel Zoom.  RAW conversion and monochrome treatment in Lightroom Classic CC.

Have a great week!

  1. Tolle Momente und so schön vereint unter dem Motto des Beitragstitel!! Sehr fein! Und ja, wir alle sollten dem kreativen noch mehr Platz machen und zugestehen 😉

  2. Marcus, I wish you a nice and peaceful holiday. Enjoy these days!

    I like so much every photograph in this post. No preference whatsoever.
    Tomorrow Halloween here. Do you have also this holiday in Germany?

  3. I hope you have a wonderfully, relaxing holiday!! November is a time of finishing up sports commitments here, but also starts to get pretty cold! Happy Monday Marcus! -Amy

      1. Ha ha! I think we all want some change and that’s why we are not happy with what we have. Human nature! People out here would love to have some snow and dark skies 🙂
