Second: I feel…blank
After going on several shoots for IV and photographing weddings for clients I have lost the joy of photographing for myself, some would say that I have lost my vision. I question the purpose of each photo I take, as if the photo needs to already have a reason for me to make the effort in visualizing the shot.
This most recent trip to California has helped with that but I still fell out of sorts. Sarah and I were taking a hike near her parents house when she commented that I had not done much macro photography in a while and that made her sad because that is her favorite photography that I do. So if the wife says something like that, I need to dust off the ol’ macro lens again.
Lucky for me I had it in my bag. It was then that I started noticing all the little things on the trail and I remembered how I loved to photograph macro because it causes me to slow down and look at the details of what is around me.
