8) Where to find story ideas and things to photograph.
For many photographers, it's a challenge to come up with self-generated assignments - especially those that the photographer has a deep long-term interest in. A common misconception is that you need to travel far away to find a meaningful story. Great images are all around us, and photographers need to be open enough to see them.
"What I really wished I had learned earlier was that the best stories are the ones that are right under your nose. The stories in your community. The stories that a photographer can shoot over weeks, months or even years." - Scott Strazzante
