Tonight, clinic I had an opportunity to catch up with a couple of fellow photographers. Naturally, information pills the conversation turned to our creative inspiration and we all kind of admitted that it’s almost non-existent these days. I’m not sure if it’s the heat or the million-and-one projects I’ve been batting around between work and the renovation, healing but it seems that my creative drive has been whittled down to around zero. Do they sell creative viagara?!
Sometimes I think my inertia is due to an overwhelming backlog of photos that I *could* be working on, or the feeling that my workflow isn’t the greatest. Well, no work is the worst workflow of all, so I’m going to try and get this ball rolling by posting some bright and summery images from my Instagram stream. If it weren’t for Instagram, these days I’d be running on fumes. I am just in love with its engaging UI and easygoing user community – it really is a joy of an app and makes shooting with my iPhone so fun. Though it’s no substitute for the satisfaction of getting out there with the clickety-clack of an old film camera, it really does provide some creative momentum.
Now to start brainstorming how to get back on the horse. Where are you finding your creative juice these days??! I’d love some ideas to get the ball rolling again!
P.S. If you’re an Instagram user and you haven’t discovered Inkstagram, get over there!
