I get creative when I see and experience something unexpected or when a situation turns out to be just as exciting and photogenic as I had imagined. But in many situations, I need to be patient and wait for the right moment to come along. Worst case scenario, I have to wait so long that that my creativity disappears.
My point is, that I have just returned from a fantastic Namibia workshop where we photographed at night – star photography with a significant focus on the photogenic and unique Milky Way. During one of those nights, a couple told me they always listen to music when photographing at night.
I was thinking, why not try out that as well?
I made a playlist and spent my nights with my favorite bands looking at shooting stars and the endless Milky Way. If you, like me, need to kickstart your night and combine pleasure and pain, I suggest you listen to George Winston’s release “December”, Steely Dan’s “Aja”, Billie Eilish’s “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” or Pat Metheny’s “The Elements: Water”, just to name a few. The list is long, so you better make your own.
