Sometimes, a bit of new equipment is enough to spark a photographer’s interest in spontaneous photoshoots and exploration.
It doesn’t need to be something crazy (or crazy expensive) like a 400mm f/2.8 supertelephoto. Even renting an 85mm f/1.8 prime, or a macro lens, is enough to bring out a lot of creativity and excitement that had been hidden behind the scenes. If you can borrow from a friend or swap equipment for a few days with them, even better. It’s always been a good excuse to take more photos and go out more often to shoot.
