Happy Peruvian independence day! The top is of me on the streets of Breña in Lima Peru last year. This shady party of town is where my mom grew up. I was told to keep my guard up with my cameras, phone, and my shoes because they can get stolen right out of my hands and off my feet. I miss Peru so much!

An excerpt from this book.
Expose yourself to a different environment. Go on an overnight trip, preferably two nights, to somewhere that you don’t normally go. Obviously the whole goal is to photograph there, and you should take as many pictures as you can. Notice how much more you’re responding to, and the details you’re seeing that you walk by every day in your normal daily life. Notice that it’s like somebody opened your eyes. This is the most tried-and-true method of finding things that you like to photograph.
It’s worked for photographers for years and years. My favorite and most effective thing to do in my work process is to get an airplane ticket to a city that I’ve not yet visited, rent a car and drive around for two days to shoot—with no hotel reservation, no plan to meet anybody, nothing set in stone. Everything is left to spontaneity, except for my return ticket home. -Todd Hido
