Remember me? Probably not, my last journal entry was in January and my last upload of art was right about the same time (also about the same time as my last shoot).
I haven't been very inspired with photography recently. My last couple of shoots felt like work. Like I was struggling to create something instead of how it would just flow out of me.
I have these cycles, I enjoy lots of creative outlets and photography is one of them. But I just haven't been inspired. This is very much like when I played music. I was all obsessed playing music for years, then things fell apart. The band starting having huge issues and eventually broke up. I put down my guitar and haven't seriously played since then. Sold off most of the equipment and I didn't even listen to much music for years. I kept a few guitars and an amp, the equipment I used most was kept. Every now and then, I pull them out to make sure it still works and to see how I feel playing them. Its starting to feel like fun again, but not like the old days.
Hopefully I will not have this with photography. I have been doing some landscapes and still enjoy them.
I do have to admit, one of the biggest obstacles with shooting is my work. I changed careers and feel like I have finally found my true calling. I love what I do now, so much that I need to find balance with work/personal life. I feel like I am working 24/7 because I love what I do.
All of this being said, I do visit DA from time to time, read journals and look at other work. I have not forgotten you, just not sure where my art is going or when I will have time to really focus on it again.
