I think most people lose inspiration from time to time for various reasons, general mood, circumstances, being unsatisfied with their output. Being overly critical of yourself doesn't help, and although inevitable, neither does trying to compare yourself to everybody else. Photography, and indeed art is so subjective. Quite often I've looked at a winning photograph in a competition and preferred the runner up. My main area of photography is landscape, but for the past few years with small children, I struggle to do much of it because I don't have the time, and I would like to buy some more equipment but I don't have the money! With landscape, what inspires me is travelling to beautiful places (the quieter the better) and having the privilege to view and capture that scene, some of my greatest highs have been just lingering on the tops of mountains for as long as I possibly can, savouring the view and the light. I can't imagine that awe will ever leave me.
