Writers get it. Can photographers get it? I think I have it, the “it” being photographer’s block. For the last two years I have been working very hard to improve my photography skills. I have had a vision of where I wanted to take my photography. I have worked very hard over many long hours to get me to where I wanted to be. More or less, I have arrived at my destination. 2012 was in incredible learning year for me and as I look back at the images I created, I am very proud of my work.
However, since the beginning of the year, I have been feeling a general malaise about my photography. I feel as though I am at a standstill or perhaps it is a cross roads? Consistently bad weather has kept my photography to a minimum. What little I have produced this year feels as though I am just repeating what I accomplished last year. I keep finding myself asking what is next? Where do I go from here?
I have some time off next week as I visit my family and my son in Atlanta. Besides the anticipation of seeing many people that I love dearly, I am looking forward to the change of location and routine. Perhaps I will gather some new inspiration.
I’ll be sure to let you know as my thought progress. However, I would like to know if you have every found yourself at a cross roads or with a block in something you’re passionate about. How did you overcome your issues and move forward?
