What to do, when frustration knocks on your door... - Dreamstime
Hi guys, I decided to write this post to help myself (and maybe others) to get out of misery of frustration that strikes us - photographers from time to time...
So... recently I haven't created any image (for a while already) - mostly because of no time (20 minutes per day is not enough for me), unfavorable conditions (temporarily lost the only space where I was able to set the lights...) and too noisy results of my travel photography from last months... Basically - lady Frustration knocked on my door and is my company these days (weeks, months)...
I do realize, that the only way out is to create and upload new images, that will sell and make me feel like it is all worth it... but those obstacles are demotivating every time I think of grabbing the camera... - "You don't have enough time for it - don't even try - you will not even finish setting lights, so why wasting your precious time?... " - says lady Frustration every time... And I am such a jerk, that I listen to her and let myself get seduced... - but it is so easy to do nothing when working hard is needed...
So as I am writing this post, I made a commitment to take it step-by-step (- you cannot climb Mt. Everest in half an hour, but if you do couple of steps every day [uphill off-course], on day you will find yourself on top - right?).
The plan is to upload one image as soon as it will be ready - no matter if it is gonna take a week to create it (or two weeks...) but every day I am going to do (in my limited time) a couple of steps which will get me closer to upload...
(If you have some better method of saying Good bye to lady Frustration I would be grateful if you share it...)
