Connecting More Deeply With The Creative Process
I am Juliette Mansour and I call this The Additional f-Stop as a metaphor for how I’ve learned grow my creativity as a photographer and all the other confused, haphazard creative roles I’ve tried to claim, dabble in and leave aside because I was too afraid to say I was truly ‘creative’. Does this sound familiar? “Adjusting the Lens of Life” is what I’m able to do only when I’m being mindful and honest with myself every day.
My primary method is through street photography – both digital and film but you’ll find my Instagram description a little more accurate: “Traveling photographer ISO candid street behavior, light bulb moments & mother nature’s poetry.”
in 2009 I began sharing how I use my own work to become more mindful and improve my creative process. Creativity is not reserved for artists alone. Stephen Covey says, “Every human has four endowments – self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change.”
