Sometimes when you’re in a rut the best way to get out of it is to do something completely out of the box and try something new – something a little risky.

Portrait photographer Sean Tucker changed things up recently but setting out on a landscape photography road trip.

He videos the experience and I think the result is fascinating – both to see how he approached his landscape photography but also to hear his insights on stepping outside his comfort zone to approach a new type of photography for him.

I like what he wrote in his blog about the experiment:

“There was no guarantee the trip wouldn’t be a waste as I’m not a professional landscape photographer by any means, but I think the best creativity will always come out when you are taking risks.”

Grab a cup of your favourite beverage and settle down to journey with Sean. The end results are at the end of the video.

Have you ever stepped out of your normal type of photography to try something new like Sean did?
