What if I’ve lost it?
What if the magic is gone?
What if I never capture a good shot again?
We have all asked ourselves these questions.
There are times when we can’t seem to capture so much as a marginally good picture even if our lives depended on it. The more we focus on it, the worse our results get. What the heck is going on?
Is it my camera? Do I need a new one?
Is it me?
Did I get a couple of lucky shots in the past and now it is all over?
Do I totally suck at photography?
Relax. It’s not over and you don’t suck.
The only thing that can stop the magic is if you stop shooting.
Similar to writer’s facing writer’s block, sometimes we just get stuck.
We simply need to find those things that most inspire us.
Grab your camera.
Go someplace different.
Just start shooting again.
Don’t think about it too much. Just shoot.
Find the beauty surrounding you.
Get rid of your fear of taking creative liberties with the shots you capture. Play with your pictures in a photo editor until you create what it is you see inside your head. Push the limits and play! Allow the creativity to flow through you.
Above all, challenge yourself to try new things and just have fun.
