There was a time not too long ago when I could walk for an hour, spend an hour in post-processing, and have two weeks’ worth of photos to post to my blog. My life has been tipped upside down lately and I haven’t had the time to really devote to my camera. But there is also the very real fact that when I am able to make time for photography I see generally uninspired.
Here’s a good example. In an hours’ walk today I found the motivation to take fewer than 50 exposures, less than a dozen different subjects, and this was pretty much the best thing I came home with. The lines are all wrong there are several distracting elements, and the subject itself is just kind of meh.
Its the creativity doldrums I guess. Most photographers I know have experienced something similar. I have myself, though not quite as drastically as I feel it now. This too shall pass, but I wish it would hurry up and let me get back to doing things I’m really proud of.
