Ramblings of an Amateur Photographer

Photo Rut

Waterfall in black and white

Lately I have been in a photography rut. My juices aren't flowing, I look around and see photos, but I don't seem to have the ambition to lug out my gear and make some images. I've tried watching some videos on new stuff to try. I've been doing a little reading and brushing up on some intellectual skills, but the making of images has just been dormant. So what does one do? Just do it. Grab your camera and go take some images. They don't have to be great, they don't even have to be good. Just put the camera up to your eye and start snapping away. I am feeling more energetic on taking some images from doing this.

I am excited to be the assistant leader on some new photo treks this year. We are headed to Bodie, CA (and old Ghost town) and Old Car City in Georgia in March. It's going to be a blast. I can hardly wait. I did just make a significant photo equipment purchase and once it's here and I have time to play with it I'll expose that information later
