Do you feel stale?
I know I complain about this all the time these days, but my photography, such as it is, feels really, super stale. I’m completely uninspired and just feel, well, “stuck” when it comes to my creativity in general and my photography in particular. I have the photographic equivalent of “writer’s block”.
I have photographer’s block!
So, what to do?
Regular readers, and you know who you are, will know that I mostly try to share something interesting, fun and free on Fridays around here and are probably wondering what my creative angst has to do with all that. Well, I’m glad you asked!
You see, I have the answer! Well, one answer. Well, actually, I don’t have it, per se, but Haje Jan Kamps does! In fact, he has eleven answers to your photographer’s block.
The only one out of that list I can personally verify is the “self-portraiture” cure.
Back when I first got my first DSLR, I did the Flickr 365 Days project, where you take a self-portrait every day for a year. It really got my photography going and I’ve thought about doing it again, but, well, I just never seem to have the time these days to commit to that much dedicated photography time. Still, it really did get me out of my rut and get me started on really exploring my photography.
So, hey, since we know that at least one of those things work, why not check out the rest over at Haje’s site? You never know what might come of it!
