It is Creativity Week here at Karwoski & Courage.
Every year we devote at a week to exploring the various aspects of creativity. We’ve kicked off the week with a hands-on Photoshop tutorial from our own gifted visual eye, Emily Finley (See her Awesome Screenshots writeup). Today we’ll have a discussion with a graphic artist we work with and we will cap the week with a trip to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
What better time, then, to share a cool tool to broaden your creativity.
Stock photography has become so commonplace that it can serve as a cliche for a punchline in movie promotions. It should come as little surprise, then, that a counter trend has emerged with the use of stock photography that doesn’t look like stock photography.
The Death To The Stock Photo site is among those leading this charge by offer license- and royalty-free stock photography that is beautiful and will not invite a punchline. The photo used in this post is but one example of their offerings.
The site works like this: You sign up for their eNewsletter and every month they send you a zip file with their latest themed compilation of photographs to use as you please. The photo for this post came from a set called Simplify that included 10 photographs.
Death To The Stock Photo was started by a couple of photographers who began sharing their themed photo sets with friends and family and has since grown to meet demand.
They now have a premium option for $20 a month that helps fund photographers and gives you complete access to the library.
