The left side of my brain has decided to take the form of Gollum recently and say “you suck at everything, loser”.
Been in a little photography kind of slump in these past few days. I get either get extremely bored of my photography style, or feel like there’s no growth at all….still sloppy, and feels so monotonous. To make myself feel better I tend to blame it on almost everything I can think of or even what’s around me…is it the camera? The lense? My lack of skill? Or the empty cup of dried tea leaves next to my computer which has been left there for weeks…pah
Following other bloggers with amazing photography can really be a double edged knife. I often use it as a source of inspiration, but here and then I feel like I have light years to go. And then my Gollum of a brain fights with itself giving me a massive headache and ultimately leaves me in a slump. It happens about once every three months where I look at this blog, or the photos that I have taken and think “everything is SO shit”
Normally when negativity invades you counter it with solutions. “Maybe I need to buy a new and improved lense?” or “change your snail pace of a computer so that it can be fast enough to run photoshop” or even “move out of your apartment and settle at the centre of Seoul”. Brrrgh….Is there a way to solve this without costing a frick amount of money?
I’m scratching through a brick wall
Get yourself together Ken….Go to Naju and look at these gorgeous Canola flowers by the river….and perhaps jump off~
Let’s pray for a more upbeat post next time~ heh
