Let’s fight Coronavirus despair with creativity…indoors!

Hi everybody. As these difficult times overwhelm our days, let us try to stay positive. Negativity, fear and despair undermine our creative power but we must fight! 

If you are, like I am, in a country where you are urged to stay home or, like my family and friends, in lock-down, get on with creative projects and fight depression and boredom with your talent. After all, you can do it safely indoors. 

This is a good time to catch up with stock photography, video, illustration and audio.

If you are not yet a contributor, quarantine is a good occasion to give it a shot. Prep up your work and upload it from the safety of your home. You will make some money too. Due to the confinements, internet entertainment is booming, as people need information, distraction, leisure and fun without going out. Hence, content is highly needed at this moment. Naturally, creations depicting everything revolving around the disease are selling like crazy but you don’t need to focus on corona if you don’t wish to. There’s plenty of material being published online right now that aims at ‘distracting’ people from our current plague. So go for it!

Perhaps you’ll be thinking that staying at home limits your creative possibilities. Wrong!

Let that creative juice out and you’ll see there are a lot of interesting shots to be made in your house. You can improve your table-top photography skills. Have plants on your balcony? Learn how to shoot them properly. Or get cooking and then photograph your dishes. If you are confined with your clan, set up a family home life shooting…. 

Time goes by slowly when you stay home for days. Take advantage and learn some new skills or software.

Get started with new types of art or learn new creative software. It’ll help with boredom, make time pass and very likely it’ll be useful in the future! This situation will appease eventually. Human history is full of diseases. Our ancestors have suffered from epidemics but humanity has survived. We will too. 

 

Stay safe, respect the quarantine rules, don’t over watch the news.

And keep creating!
