Photography blahs.




During this photography 365 project/challenge with James I really feel like I have had moments of brilliance. Lately, however, I have had fewer and fewer of those and all my photos I feel are subpar and definitely not something I am proud of at the end of the day.

Lighting, of course, is my main obstical, as I imagine it is for many photographers. Other than that, how I can I be a more consistent photographer? Any tips from anyone? Do I just need to take hundreds of photos and not stop until I have something I am truly happy with?

I ALWAYS take at least 100 pictures anytime I set out to take pictures at all. I MIGHT get 1 or 2 from 100 that I actually feel are worth looking at. It's frustrating. Sometimes I feel the "blas" as well. It helps to take frivolous pictures of something I enjoy for no other reason than I enjoy it. Recently it's been pictures of my daughter, but before she was born I could always count on animal or flower photography to kick me out of my photography "blah" rut.

Good luck! I love the pictures of James you've been taking. They are so cute!!

Thanks, Sarah. Good to know I'm not the only one.

And, congrats on the little girl, she's darling!
