I hate patches of time like this. I know it’ll pass, and I know it’s on my shoulders to make that happen.
I watch Scott’s videos twice a week as he shares both the shooting side and the processing side of his beautiful landscape — usually seascape — photography. I’ve always thought he was a pretty down-to-earth guy. Now I know it for sure because he can admit to the creative doldrums.
We all have this problem now and then. Like Mama always said, this too shall pass.
Today I had a physical issue that kept me from getting any new shots. Maybe I will talk about that more later.
Anyway, you’ll have to put up with another shot from last Saturday.
I love this little lighthouse. You may have seen it in a movie. I didn’t know about that when I made this photo last summer.
Of course, the lighthouse is not truly on Mackinac Island. It’s on its own little island in the lake near Mackinac. That little island also has a name, but I forget it.
I think I may try to get out to the local art museum tomorrow. I see it as a sort of street photography opportunity.
We’ll see what happens.
There seems to always be someone who doesn’t get what we are doing. Someone who finds our work so desperately appalling as to cause them to sit at a keyboard and tell us that we are wrong… our work is wrong… our art is wrong.
From last Saturday.
Do you ever run out of gas on photography? Have a hard time getting inspired to make photos?
Well, take a break.
You are an amateur, not a pro. Your next meal does not depend on your photography.
