I haven’t blogged on here in a long time, and I’ve been pretty scarce over on Flickr, as well as Twitter. The truth is I haven’t even really touched most of my photos in a very long time. Last week, I was in Yosemite National Park, which was a mind-blowing experience. The park is absolutely amazing – it’s so vast, I feel like you can’t even fit it into your brain.
Of course, I took tons of photos. But once I got back and started sorting through them, I was just so disgusted with everything. I don’t know if it’s just something I’m going through and maybe if I look at them again in a week or two, they’ll be much better looking to me than my first pass, or if truly, they’re all a bunch of crap. I’m leaning towards the latter, but hoping for the former.
Within this week, I’ve said a bunch of times to myself and a couple times to others, that maybe I’m not cut out for this photography stuff. I don’t know. I’m experiencing so much self-doubt right now. Thankfully, I’ve learned, through friends on Twitter, that it’s not just me going through this and that (hopefully) I’ll get through it soon and get back to normal shooting.
But at the same time, I think I need to figure out a couple things. Need to figure out what kind of photographer I am, need to maybe figure out what I’m actually good at and focus on that. Or not. Mostly I think I need to think things through.
Here’s hoping I’ll be back on the photo train by next week!
(I may maybe post some of my iPhone photos from Yosemite – I’m actually happier with them than I am with my DSLR photography!)
