For months now, I feel as though photography has been nothing but a painful tooth-pulling me. However, something changed, literally in a moment, that snapped me out of my funk and back into my old routine. I wish I could pin-point what exactly happened, because if I could, I would have unlocked the secret to rediscovering your inspiration!
I can say with certainty that the journey – the wandering in the creative desert for forty years, so to speak – was an important part of the transformation for me. Feeling so lost for so many months basically wiped my mind clean, and I became a blank slate. Photography, once again, feels new an exciting to me.
If you are feeling lost, you will wander into clarity, too – it’s only a matter of time. The only advice I can give you is to embrace the slow journey, don’t try to rush it.
