I have been a bit lazy with my photography lately, haven’t felt so great about it! Sometimes you get into a bit of a rut and need a boost of motivation! I often spend my time on clickinmoms or chatting to other photographers to inspire me! I know so many really great, super talented women! Sometimes this can be a good thing and other times it just makes you compare yourself to the great work out there and then you are demotivated all over again! And lets face it you really should never compare yourself to anyone, only compare yourself to who you used to be. So this time I need to give myself my own kick up the bum to get back behind the camera! I always find quotes really helpful, here are some to soak up 🙂
“ Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst. – Henri Cartier-Bresson
“ Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow. – Imogen Cunningham
Fear is a darkroom where negatives develop. ~Usman B. Asif
One photo out of focus is a mistake, ten photo out of focus are an experimentation, one hundred photo out of focus are a style. ~Author Unknown
“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.” – Paul Caponigro
But anyway I have picked up my camera again. I also downloaded instagram so that I can try to take at least 1 photo a day just for me for the fun of it!
Here is my favourite photo from the past week. I bought these Orchids over a week ago and just love them ! They sit by the window next to my computer in the sunlight and just look so gorgeous but I was amazed how beautiful they were inside!!!
I hope you like it 🙂
