I just haven’t been overly thrilled with any of my work lately. Maybe it’s the time and location restraints of my job or maybe it’s the short days and dreary weather. I’m not sure. I do know that because of the above reasons I have been thinking that I have to work quick and get a photo by the middle of the day, otherwise it’s dark by the time I get off of work. I don’t particularly care for most night-time photography besides, the town I live in doesn’t really present many after dark photo ops. Or maybe it’s the time of year. My mind is more on the holiday season and year-end winding down kind of thing. Or maybe it’s simply a mental slump.
It’s not that I think the photos aren’t good. I think they are and so did everybody that took the time to leave comments. So at least I’m still connecting with people. The comments I receive are tremendous help for me to see what resonates in people. Granted I don’t think of that when I’m out shooting (I’m not sure what I’m thinking) but it helps afterwards when I’m sitting at the computer and reviewing the photos and deciding where I want to take them. I also have been enjoying taking the color processing into new areas, at the expense of cutting back on my black and white work. Maybe that’s the ticket – keep experimenting until my next breakthrough. Pentax K20D, DA18-135
