Photographers Block

Toby in my shadow, originally uploaded by phaird.

For the past few weeks, I haven't been feeling very creative. I've been coming to the park for over 2 years now and have LOTS of good photos. I've been looking at other photographers on Flickr and have been inspired by much of what I see but I just can't seem to keep my energy up.

This book project has hit a real wall and I'm not sure how to climb over it. I've been talking to people but I just can't seem to find my path back to getting it published through a publisher. I'm hoping to get a real kick in the pants over the summer and start sending out proposals again.

This blog is my lifeline to keep the idea alive. Without you, my readers and kind comments, this wouldn't have gotten this far. Thank you.

I understand your blockage. Sometimes I have trouble with photo block too. I can usually overcome it by shaking things up: getting out at sunrise (best trick in the book), or sunset (second best), or finding a new subject (sometimes I get in a rut because I mostly shoot pics of the WoofGang dogs) or...gazing at pics others have shot. One of my recent favorite techniques is to spend a week with a prime lens on my camera - no zooms. Force me to think a bit more and, sometimes, that helps!

You're making some wonderful images. Keep it up!
