Dear Camera

posted on 20th of january, 2010

Dear Camera,

I'm sorry I've been neglecting you during these past months.

I have plenty of excuses: the holidays were too busy, my day job has been to stressful, it's too hard to find subjects to shoot...but the truth is, I haven't been feeling that old spark lately.

Call it laziness or lack of inspiration, but I guess I've just needed some space and time to get away from it all. With the stress I've been under at work lately, I haven't been able to muster up the enthusiasm I should have for something I've always loved doing.

But I want to get back to my love for photography, so I'm make a new commitment to you, my camera.

We're going to start spending time more together, and I promise to take you out more. Every weekend I'll be working to build my dreamstime portfolio, and most importantly, I'm going to start enjoying photography again.

I'd like to tell my camera the same, but I'm not sure it'll be happy at all. It's -20 outdoors) So we are waiting for some warming)
Good luck and inspiration to both of you!)

it's very normal for me too to feel that way - don't worry too much - we're all allowed to get absorbed in other things - i find that when i get back to my camera i'm full of new ideas and the enthusiasm is greater - the great thing about stock (if it's a hobby) is that you can do it in your own time, no pressure from anyone - so what's the rush ?? good luck and enjoy life
