What to do, when frustration knocks on your door...

posted on 30th of october, 2012

Hi guys, I decided to write this post to help myself (and maybe others) to get out of misery of frustration that strikes us - photographers from time to time...

So... recently I haven't created any image (for a while already) - mostly because of no time (20 minutes per day is not enough for me), unfavorable conditions (temporarily lost the only space where I was able to set the lights...) and too noisy results of my travel photography from last months... Basically - lady Frustration knocked on my door and is my company these days (weeks, months)...

I do realize, that the only way out is to create and upload new images, that will sell and make me feel like it is all worth it... but those obstacles are demotivating every time I think of grabbing the camera... - "You don't have enough time for it -...

(and you should not forget to do it as well if your computer likes to crash from time to time... )
