Some fine words from Flickr Blog:
“It’s important to believe in the uniqueness and value of your own experience. When you’re just starting out, it’s easy to edit yourself a little too much, to think “Well, why should I bother taking this shot? I’m sure it’s been done before….” Well, it has all been done before, but it hasn’t been done by you. Take your camera (any camera, no matter the quality) with you everywhere and just get in the habit of paying attention and noticing what you’re drawn to. I’ve learned a lot about myself through photography, and in many ways the photos I take help me understand what I’m thinking or feeling at a given time. To me, photography can be as much about listening as seeing, about emotion as much as light and form. Be open to what you find, and know it’s worth recording and thinking about. (I’m not sure if that was one tip or eight, but there you have it. :)”
Been struggling with being inspired to take pictures for the last couple of months. Been struggling to do pretty much anything besides work but photography especially is just going nowhere. Every time I take a few pictures (and I take quite a few), I hardly find more than handful to be worth anything close to what I was feeling when I was taking them. Changed gear, changed techniques, changed perspective but for some reason the disappointment continues.
Don’t know what I am doing wrong… maybe I just don’t have the eye to make pictures. The count of number of things I am not talented in continues 🙂
