Ugly Challeges Trained Brain





Sometimes it’s good to throw out your education. Instead of drawing with your accustomed hand, draw with your unaccustomed hand. Instead of following the rules in order to make a good photograph, go out and take a lot of ugly shots. We get all hung up on trying to make a good painting, a good photograph, or maybe we are trying to write a poem other people will like. Sometimes, it’s good to throw out all that stuff and make a mess. You never know, you might get something you like.  The idea of taking ugly shots came from Otto von Munchow’s challenge, Go out and photograph something ugly.

  1. It’s very true! I’ve been writing some very “teenage” music recently, having lots of fun with it, shortly followed by an odd guilt trip that I should be more mature now and writing “grown up” music. Sometimes you’ve just got to let loose and see what happens – these shots could lead you anywhere, I like that!
