I could write a 100 word story about this image but I’m not good at it. This picture is how a wall can be, it doesn’t have to be a real one ! It can be a psychological one, or how you can be blocked in your own mind, or dreaming about things wich are not attainable or a dilemma in a relationship and so on… I didn’t think of this when working on the picture, it just came to this result and I’m trying to analyze it afterwoods, must be my unconcious mind :-)
Today I went over to Big Brother to take a peek at the Exhibit of the Single Frame Stories. It is nicely done, all the contributions are well placed, but the labyrinth is tricky… bumpt my head serveral times , but hm… never clever with navigating my avatar :-) Indeed as said somewhere, the exhibit is well placed and has some space around it, not all placements can say the same… mostly all is cramped together, but that’s for a later post. When I was there I could see a lot of visitors watching the frames. Next time I go back to shoot again some more pictures of interesting builds, for some reason they did not load into my PC, all is new, a SLviewer, a new Desktop and some files have moved… sigh…we adapt to new handling… slowly.. but I hope not to late :-)
How to be creative
Limit your tools to only the most vital
Don’t listen to feedback
Having a routine
Let go of perfectionism
Ignore the past
If you have problems being creative, look inside yourself. Everyone is creative, but if you don’t think you’re ‘good’ enough to be creative, then chances are you won’t be able to be as creative. Raise your self esteem and you’ll find that it’s a lot easier to be yourself.
Whenever you’re challenged to create something, ask yourself: What’s the most outrageous, preposterous, and nonsensical thing I can come up with?
Spend time around creative people. The most reliably creative people are children. Their imaginations aren’t boxed in, and “mind merging” with them can remind you of what it’s like to think outside the box.
Change the ways you do things, take another road to town, watch tv with one eye or read while you are in the toilet.
Don’t care about what other people think of your work or talent. You know more about yourself than they do.
A penalty promo stunt from Adobe software at a bus stop in Sweden, recently gave broad smiles on the faces of the bustravellers.
The advertising posters that you normally encounter at a bus stop, were transformed into real-time funny Photoshop Creations of waiting people.
All by accident I came to this contribution for the prompt ‘community’. When I went to SL to receive the free Bear given for the occasion of the 10th Birthday and putting it on, I could have had big fun but helas after setting the windlight and 1 photo I was darn ejected ! It will be the first time I make a contribution that simple with 1 shot and 1 window take ! Mix&Matched it in Photoshop and put some words on top… no more no less. It doesn’t have to be complicated every time to make a Single Frame Story :-) (end of this one)
