Here in this post of ours, we wanted to highlight some of the 10 most inspiring TED talks about creativity. There can be numerous reasons why we should debate about creativity watching these wonderful videos, at times we tend to do the same stuff again and again, in photography we tend to produce the same qualities and search for the same verb more than often, this is very much the symptom of having the artistic block due to lack of creativity.
I am pretty sure these short talks will boost your morale and drive your passion towards photography in developing our creativity and thereby vision in order to make you love for what you do.
