Sometimes I feel I am trying my best, but my best is not good enough.
Don't really feel my photography is improving much, other than the EVA 3.0 photoshoot last year, which I personally like it a lot, and one I can say I'm proud of.

This couple of years, I feel my photography works has slowed down significantly due to mainly work and health issues.
I would really wish to be able to shoot and improve more from now onwards, and current day job seems to be more stable already (but will still be activated on last minute if there are urgent site works).

Next, I also want to spend more time with friends and people I going to work/worked with, more discussions, inputs, ideas, or just plain chat, and I do want to go to the next level (for photography) too!

Anyways, I have already uploaded a few photos each from 2 out of 3 sets I did in Sydney 2 weeks ago.

1st set:: Atelier Meruru (Cosplay) with Kiara
Atelier Meruru - 01 by shiroang

2nd set:: Leathers (Fashion) with Vera-Chimera
Leathers - 01 by shiroang

The 3rd set will be a portrait one shot with Kiara.

So do stay tune till then!

I honestly think you could/need to break out of your current comfort zone. But of course, it really depends on your direction and what you want to achieve. Perhaps you can try to step back and really take a good look at your body of work, and give yourself a critique, find out what it is that is -really- holding you back.

Yeah, I would love to try a couple of new stuffs like I have mentioned and replied to Andy Wana, fetish/hardcore/artistic nude stuffs.
Elsewise I would love to do more of concert photography, and animal/bird photography which I has been missing out for quite a while.

But for the above mentioned stuffs it's either I lack the equipment (still saving up to buy back a 70-200mm f/2.8) or/and no contacts for it given in Singapore.

On the same time, I just want to improve more/faster, feels quite stagnated, and recent work and health issues doesn't make it simpler.

You got the skills and your photos are amazing, but like a few people already said, maybe go to something different. I know that sometimes you don't wanna go out of you comfort zone, but try for a change. Maybe still life, or videography or even something collaborative with someone from another area, like music or graphical designer. It would be a breath of fresh air and would expand the way you see your work now.

Thank you. :)
Do read my reply to Andy Wana (as it's the same comment XD).

Definitely love to do more things, or things I been doing lesser of recent, but I can't due to lack of equipment or contacts at the moment.

I totally understand, but it's something you gotta take a risk at first, try to ask closest friends about possibility of having a session without showing faces just details, it would be a good start. Or, dunno if you like, start with gravure themed and move to the nude/fetish/hardcore scene as you progress and get more contacts.

But either way, good luck at it, man. And take your time.

Your photos are really good! I love your concert shots and your cosplay shots! *AndyWana is right in suggesting to try different things for awhile and build up inspiration that way. Doing all sorts of things will also make you better :). No worries, don't be too dejected about it. We'll be here for you anyway :hug:

Why don't you try other types of photography? I always feel like trying something different with my photography all the time even though I'm always approached for cosplay photos.

I love to do quite a few genres, but lately don't have the chance to do it so yeah...
Like concert (still saving up to buy back a 70-200 f/2.8 again) and animal/bird photography (will make do with a 2x TC when I get the 70-200).
Elsewise I would love to try fetish/hardcore/artistic nude portraits, but no contacts and given in Singapore will make it even harder.

Animal/ bird photography would be cool. Tried my hands at it at Singapore Zoo but it was too packed when I was there LOL.
I've got a contact on Facebook for fetich/ artistic photography. I am sure she won't say no to your photography talents.

She's across the pond from you =)

I LOVE your photography. I find it gorgeous and inspiring to push myself as a photographer. Although it's normal unfortunatly for anyone to get ''down'' or loose some self esteem at some point for whatever reasons, I do hope that you'll keep your chin up and remember that there are a lot of people who follow your work for a reason :)

Probably it's due to work and health reasons lately, so everything is not going the way I really plan for though.

you're a fantastic photographer.
All the greats are bound to hit a slow point at one time or another, but you'll come out of it. ^^
i always love your works, and I personally think that you are the best cosplay photographer to date.
So keep up the good work, and I'm sure that you'll make the improvements that you want in time!

you're awesome, don't worry too much! I know how you feel and that's only natural - you always want to reach higher and set higher standards for your photos and that's a good thing. Sure it's a bit depressing not to satisfied with a shooting.. but I'm sure the next one will be totally awesome! :-)
so cheer up :3

Yes, it's something like that too.
But just feel don't really have the chance or oppoturtunity to try some stuffs (unless you have the contacts).
Thank you. :)

You ve got skills, so maybe is also a matter of how you see yourself, not only your photos:) you will improve if your mind is set on that!
I will look forward~ changes inside bring the result outside [in photos or any art form~ :)
