Adjusting to a social distancing way of life will look different for everyone and you should do what feels right for you.
You are absolutely entitled to sit on the couch and watch a full series in a day without feeling guilty, eat the entire party size bag of chips as a snack, and stay in sweats from morning ‘til night.
But if you want a few alternatives, we’ve got you covered.
For the photographer looking for things to do while staying home, we’ve put together a list of ideas to stay productive and help make things feel a little more normal.
If you’re in business, connect with your lawyer about any legal items that need to be addressed such as contracts, insurance options, payments, etc.
If you’re looking for some inspiration in this department, I would highly recommend checking out @jordi.koalitic on Instagram for some amazing photos and equally great behind-the-scenes videos.
Take a selfie – Dust off the tripod and have an excuse to get done up. Get yourself an updated headshot, even it's just to update your main Facebook picture that’s 3 years old.
Photograph roommates – Whether you share your home with a significant other, parents, kids, or pets, snag a few photos of them. You can even take this time to try out some new prompts to help get your newfound model more engaged.
The thing to remember is that we’re all in this together. Even though we might not be able to all be in the same room, there is still so much support to be found in online communities.
Check for Facebook groups and associations that are in your area or more general ones. There are always ways to connect.
While it’s good to be productive, you’ll probably need a break and crave some social interaction. Spend quality time face-to-face with those at home or via video chats with those farther away.
