The last few days have been terrible. I have not been able to get any decent photographs due to what I term "stock block". Have you ever just tried and tried to get the images you believe will work and when you view them you just thing....Uhg....what was I thinking.
You take a trip to your favourite spots to see if there are any other images waiting to be taken on top of the other two and half dozen you already have from those areas.
Then you realise that no matter how hard you look you just can't see anything.
Best thing to do in this case...go home...BUT...don't just sit. Just this afternoon I was really discouraged and had no idea what to do to get the creative juices flowing. I then went into every room...stood in each corner and looked...looked at everything there was to see....lo and behold...there was stock everywhere.
Basically what I am saying....you have stock images all around you in your home, your garage, your garden and if you are lucky even the bathroom :-)
Sometimes we don't really have to make so much effort in trying to capture that ONE image.
After all...is stock photography not also about increasing your portfolio size as well with good photographs of good variety?
Cheers all and happing stocking!!
