A couple of days ago I finally reached 200 sales with the purchase of this image.
While this a great milestone, it leaves me wondering what to do next. I do not think that I have reached my creative limit but I am definitely in slump. When I get home from work I just do not have the drive to create more images like I did last month. I am sure that all contributors go though peaks and valleys. It just so happens that this corresponds with a drop in sales this month. Maybe this is the December blues but it is a happy time so maybe I am just too busy shopping for Christmas presents.
I think I just need a break from 2011.
Congratulation and Merry Christmas!!!
I know exactly what you mean with "when I get home from work..".
I have now 2 weeks off from my 10-12 hour days and I want to use every 2nd day for photo - try out my studio, do some more night shots of Sydney - all stuff I wasn't able to do because it was just so busy over the last few months and I lost the creativity and drive.
go through DT images for inspirations, it helps me every time.
Good consideration. I also have drops in sales and approval, but then come the month when everything turns around again. Good luck in the next work.
Congratulations, great for you.
Take you camera shopping and shoot some editorial shots about people Christmas shopping!
Enjoy your break! Now is the best time for taking a break and find back to creativity... Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
Creativity... where is?
Give yourself a little creativity break...inspiration will come again, enjoy in holidays a little, and then back to creative work in 2012. I wish you best of luck, much creativity and many sales in 2012.
Greetings from Croatia!
Enjoy your break and you will feel refreshed and full of inspiration for 2012, Happy Christmas. :)
Enjoy the holidays, friends and family,creativity will come unexpectedly after a good rest. Merry Christmas.
A shorter break is the best solution for now. After few days of doing something different you will find your creativity and mainly pleasure of doing your new pictures... Enjoy the end of the year, I wish you lot of sales in 2012!
you're absolutely right, up and down trend is something that we cannot miss out in our life. Let enjoy the coming season Holiday, MERRY CHRISTMAS !!! nice profile !
