More snaps from the Japanese Gardens in Portland.
I have to tell you that I had been feeling a little discouraged when picking up the camera in recent months. I felt like my work was not getting technically better and I wasn’t feeling as though anything really LOOKED very good. The camera was mostly living in its bag.
Well, we got on our road trip and I put the cheapie kit lens on with the idea that I’d merely use it to catch a few shots here and there. I ended up shooting constantly, finding tons of stuff in the world around me that I wanted to capture. Ben had generously gifted me with photo-editing software earlier in the summer and through trial-and-error, I’ve started to find my style voice in post-processing as well. It’s been incredibly gratifying and I am now thinking about expanding my glass collection rather than packing things up.
I know I don’t have a lot of readership lately since my blog has been mostly dormant for the past year or so, but I have to ask: are there any photographers or other artists out there who are reading and would like to share their method for moving past an uninspired and downright negative frame of mind? Please share in the comments!
