138/365 Frustrated.

    *Be prepared: I'm about to do some major complaining*

    I'm so so so frustrated. With myself and my camera. Mostly my camera. I did a whole photo shoot today that was a lot of work. But my camera didn't "agree" with the lighting, and the photo shoot was ruined, again!

    I've also been very uninspired lately. Probably because my camera keeps failing me. That's also why there was no photo yesterday, and why today's is so stupid. I'm sorry. I feel like I’m disappointing all of you and myself.

    Hopefully a better photo tomorrow.

      Martina, I'm sorry things didn't turn out as you expected today! But don't worry, things will work out tomorrow :) You just keep shooting and no matter the camera you use, you will achieve what you want.

      It doesn't always work how I want but if at the end of the day I'm not in jail then all's good :)

      A balky camera definitely is a bummer. At least you still have the idea. :-(

      Oh no, it'll be okay, martina! I promise...not all of our photo shoots go as planned but at least you're still creative with what you do.

      Chin up buttercup! All will be well : )

      I hate when cameras do that! Just mess around with it some more and don't lose inspiration :) I also love the emotion in this!

      Do not be frustrated... sometimes everyone has a bad day... but later you might find some of those "spoiled" photos interesting and suitable for further processing... :-) I have many such pictures... :-)
      Unfortunately your camera does not allow you to take photo in RAW... This format provides many possibilities for improving them... :-)
      Have a nice day, Martina and take some other photos as soon as possible... :-)

      Aww, I know how annoying it is. :( The previous camera I owned had me tearing my hair out! Hoping you'll be able to get a better one soon. :)

      And actually, I LOVE this! <3

      Oh girl I know that feeling well! But don't give up, just keep on trying and you'll see, with a bit of optimism, you'll get what you want or at least something closer to your expectations..;)

      By the way this shot..you got it right!! So cheer up and keep on improving yourself :)

      Hey there..it's ok to feel this way. I think all artists get down from time to time! You're young and have a bright future ahead of you..there are days that are just dreary that have to come with the bright inspirational ones, otherwise you wouldn't appreciate the latter nearly as much.

      I'm sorry to read about the angst, but I am SO liking this concept! How cool is this?! :) Nicely done.

      Your images are awesome. You being too hard on yourself. It's hard to believe that you're feeling uninspired- you show so much creativity. What kind of camera are you using that you feel so frustrated with it. Use what you think are the weaknesses of the camera to make yourself into a stronger photographer. Use the weaknesses to push your vision. Does the camera have lots of noise? Then shoot the noisiest creative images (where the noise adds to concept)) that you can. Cheers!

      hi I love this image, it does depict your emotion and I understand fully how you feel, I have been very frustrated also with starting up my motivational website and there were times when I did reach my breaking point. I did write an article on reaching your breaking point and I would love to use this picture for the caption. Thanks so much for sharing and I will definitely include the link to your fantastic work.
