Think Outside the Studio Walls.
To 'think outside the box' is to not let your creativity be limited by conventional means or to come up with alternate solutions to a problem. Personally, I think outside the studio walls. To be confined to a studio with three-point lighting and three different backdrops to choose from is to forget what photography is about. To capture a moment of life as it's happening, to make a visionary statement.
