Refresh and Recharge
There are days when the well runs dry. Maybe it’s cold, rainy or just one of those blue days when nothing goes right. Don’t give up. Take a break. Go for a walk. Breathe deep and recharge. Keep your eyes open and look around you for the little things.
Go back to the basics. It’s time for some visual shadow boxing. I don’t mean shadow literally, but it could be. Just look about you and open your mind, heart, and soul to the world. Laugh out loud, chuckle to yourself and smile. Find the joy within. Remember what it was like the first time you saw a picture, be it in the darkroom, or on the LCD screen.
The weather in Pittsburgh has been lousy. It’s February. So don’t sweat it, just shoot. Find a theme, or not. Work on a narrative, or not. Just see. Shoot. Repeat. Spring is right around the corner.
