Going through a very difficult time right now. On a personal level life is changing fast and i am turning into a tightly wound ball of emotion. I have (hopefully for just the time being) lost the inspiration to pick up my camera. Here it is, the most beautiful season in Wisconsin and i am sitting it out. Inspiration is a tough thing. It seems like the smallest issue can either set it off or shut it down. I recently figured out that my inspiration for the photos i take revolves around one person.
It's been difficult for me to separate my personal issues from my love of photography. For me, they go hand in hand and when one is up, the other is flying with passion and adventure..............but when one is down the other takes a huge hit.
I recently canceled one of my upcoming shows because my heart was just not into it. If i am not bringing my A-game during shows then i am doing a huge disservice to the people who visit my booth. It kills me when i feel like this because i truly love spending the hours talking to people about my work. It charges me and inspires me to do greater things..............
Every artist is inspired by something or someone....................i desperately want mine back!
I am trying to be patient but that is not one of my better virtues......but if that's what it takes then i am in it for the long haul.
I am really going to try and break out the camera this week. We'll see if i can find my "eye".
TJH....this one's for you : )
