Stuck In A Rut

I’ve been struggling recently with what to take pictures of and with creativity dealing with it.

So, I forced myself to go outside in my back yard and start shooting what I could.

In my head, I was telling myself “It’s just my back yard, how many interesting things are even out here to shoot? Let alone be creative about shooting it.”

I was actually pretty pleased with the outcome though!

This is by FAR my favorite that I took, and coincidentally, the best picture I have of Prissy.

She’s so active and moves all the time, so it’s hard to get a good picture of her.

The rest of the pictures are the few that I liked from the backyard shoot.

The first one is of some ivy growing on a tree. Nothing special.

The second one is my attempt in trying to capture texture. I thought it came out pretty good, but I couldn’t get the birds nest inside the birdhouse to focus at all.

The third is of some flowers that turned out way too bright and washed out. So, I just put it in black and white to try to save it.

  1. Funny how, no matter what our creative talents, we all get the same feelings from time to time. I think you did pretty well in getting yourself out of that rut!

      Thank you very much!! It’s to know that fellow photographers, or artists in general, get in ruts and just get a creativity block from time to time. It makes me feel like I’m not the only one out there with the same problems! Haha! We should start a support group….

      • Welcome 😉

        I’m a writer rather than a photographer, but it’s reassuring to see that the same feelings of frustration and doubt cross the lines: feeling less alone is one of the great things about having a blog. Helps to stop the panic setting in!
