Welcome to Design Tip Tuesday! This week I want to encourage you to get out your camera. You should take a DSLR, an iPhone camera, a Polaroid; whatever camera you can get your hands on.
Practice taking pictures, at close range, from far away, and of everything that interests you. Taking pictures exercises your eyes to learn how to look critically at things.
As a designer, a critical design eye is something that needs to be developed and maintained. Besides the benefits that knowing photography can have for you as a designer developing a critical eye is so valuable. Taking lots and lots of pictures will make you a better designer. So get out there and design something great!
