I've been pretty low recently. Not been able to get inspired about my photography at all.
My partner hates it. Hates the waiting. Doesn't see the point of driving miles to sit for ages waiting for light, yet insists on coming with me, huffing and puffing.
Tried the usual tricks. Bring your kindle, put game of thrones on your ipad etc. Yet to no avail.
I'm just not getting peace to do my photography, and I don;t look forward to it any more and don't come up with any intersting or challenging briefs.
I don't know what to do. Take a break. Give up. Put the gear away for a while.
I've stopped reading photo magazines as they are so repetitive.
Inspire me. Something new.
Read art books instead. Read Homer's Odyssey; it is full of images. Aeschylos' Oresteia too is stunning. Feed the mind. Go to London and photograph the city at dawn. Indeed, shoot sun rises. Study the Russian art photographers. Your problem is the intellectual company you keep. Photography magazines are about the technical not about ideas. Listen to Pink Floyd's concert at Pompey, study Nietzche's Birth of Tragedy, read Joyce's Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. Intellectualize your world. Learn Latin in order to read Lucretius and Sallust. Find the poets, they live outside. Art galleries too are a must.
