It is so easy to get burned out by daily issues these days. We see society’s problems on social media and we might now know it, but those issues can stress us out. So much in fact that it might begin to affect our work. It is not unusual that even the very best photographers suffer from an artistic blockage that they cannot take or find beautiful shots for their aerial photography career.
If you feel like you’re in a mental block of artistic inspiration, you may have to relax and take a break for a while before pursuing your passion again. If you need to jumpstart yourself for a project, maybe take inspirations from these:
Take a look at old projects
The one sure thing that could inspire you to do your work again and pursue your passion is to go back to the very first photos that you took. Sometimes, this is all we need to re-assess where we have been and what we have gone through and where we are right now.
The road is not always easy but the journey is what made every successful project sweeter. Take a look at your favorite works and find inspiration from them. They will remind you why you’re doing this in the first place and what you love about what you do.
Visit your favorite photography blogs and forums
If you cannot find inspiration from your own works, maybe you can find it in the works of others. Visit your favorite photographers’ blogs and websites. Find out what they are doing these days and maybe attend a workshop or an exhibit that will feature their most recent works.
When you first started doing photography, we’re sure there’s someone in your mind that you want to emulate. This someone inspired you to pursue your dreams or your passion. Look at the very same photos that made you discover your love for aerial photography, and you’ll do fine.
Connect with your community
Sometimes, all you need is a little support from the people who understand what you’re going through and what you need to do—these are the people who are as passionate about photography as you are. They understand you better than anyone else can.
No matter how much our families and friends love us, they could not simply understand the passion for photography as much as our photography family does. Reach out to these people and maybe find the spark that you need.
