I’m not sure what it is, but I can’t seem to get any of my pictures right.
To me, they all don’t look right. Maybe I’m being too picky, maybe I’m overlooking something majorly but something isn’t right.
I love black and white photography but at the moment all the images I’m producing seem to have this awful flat, dull appearance and nothing I do post production wise seems to solve it. I’m stuck in a rut and I honestly don’t know how to get out of it. It’s driving me mad to be honest.
I don’t know if because recently I’ve been extra stressed and low that I can’t concentrate properly but everything I shoot seems…meh. What am I doing so spectacularly wrong?
See now, I like these four. Do I love them though? No. Far from it.
I can’t seem to take super sharp pictures, nothing ever seems to focus right, and the editing isn’t how I see it in my head. Is this a normal thing to go through? A learning photography crisis?
Honestly, it’s moments like this that make me hate photography and want to give up. I can’t see how I can improve but nothing I try seems to work. Hugely irritating.
I said in the last blog post I was due to start the ‘A Year With My Camera’ course, which has now begun. One of the main pieces of advice given is not to compare yourself to others and just the photographer you used to be. How do I do that when quite frankly, I feel most, if not all, of my work is useless. Maybe I’m out of my depth.
