All through my late teens and early twenties I wanted to be a photographer. I was constantly snapping photos and loved editing and playing with them. Most of the time I was shy about my past time, but I never gave it up. Some of my best memories from my younger years were driving through the country trying to find something interesting to snap some shots of. It didn't matter if it was private property or if the building seemed dangerous. There was never any hesitation if it meant getting an awesome photo.
Now it feels like things are different. I've been struggling with my creativity and lately have been having a hard time finding the perfect way to channel it. I have dabbled in so many things that sometimes I feel like it is hurting me. I am a person who is afraid of failure and I have always given something up before finding out if it is truly my passion or just a phase. Taking pictures has been one of those things off and on but it is the one constant I always come back to. And now I am rambling to you all about it in hopes that getting it out there and in writing will help me stick to what I love. Being nervous or unsure isn't going to get me anywhere and it's not going to make me any better. I need to just do it and I need to do it now. So no more holding back.
Now I just need this nasty rain to clear up so I can go on a little photo adventure.......
Have any of you experience something like this? What did you do to get yourself out of a rut or to give yourself that little extra needed push?
