One of my favorite words to use is: Ingenuity. I remember the first time I heard it was on one of my favorite movies "3 Ninjas". It means: the quality of being clever, original, and inventive.
Since the movie I try to use this method as much as possible. As a photographer you try to be as different as you possibly can and that can come down to a matter of angles. I know this is off topic a bit but Spider-Man is one of my favorite super heros because he was a photographer and I try to embody him as I shoot meaning, climbing things, squat and get low as possible, all to get the shot I see in my mind in the moment. Even when it comes to lighting and props in photos, use the things around you if you don't have what you want. Remember though that you have everything around you that you need. Use your environment and build. Lastly, use the power of positive thought to do the same thing in your life to build yourself up and maximize on creativity.
