Blank

Is there such a thing as "photographer's block"? You know like "writer's block"? I think I have it. Lately I've been feeling so uninspired and just blah about my photography. Not too long ago I had tons of ideas swirling in my head at all times and now it feels like as soon as I grab the camera I just draw a complete blank. It's quite unsettling I must admit, since my love for photography is true and deep. It's like all of a sudden I have no stories to tell. What is up with that? Part of the problem I think, is that I have never been totally happy with my images and specifically with my editing (Potoshop is my nemesis). I've been trying to edit from RAW (yes, I admit I still shoot in jpg the vast majority of the time), because that is what serious photographer's do but I absolutely hate the results every single time. I think there might be something slightly faulty in my brain ("slightly" she says! haha!).

 

So

 

Methinks I need to take some time to figure out where I want to go from here. I want to find an editing style I am happy with so I must dedicate more time to reading and learning. As in writing, photography cannot be forced (or shouldn't be in my opinion) so I'll be patient and hope that my photography mojo comes back soon and the ideas start flowing again.

Yikes, sorry for the novel. Not that anybody would care about any of this but I needed to get it our of my chest and isn't that what the internet is for? Oh wait.. haha I am still crazy as ever though haha.

 

OK Bye!
