While creating your style is important in photography and other arts, sometimes switching things up can open new doors, and improve your “normal” work. Switching things up forces you to see things in new ways, and may open up new ideas. Maybe you won’t use anything you take in these sessions, but they will help you to think outside the box in your normal work.

There are a number of options to rent gear, search for “photo rentals <your city>” or go to a site like borrowlenses.com or lensprotogo.com. Better yet, borrow it from a friend, maybe in exchange for lending them something.
