Having just joined WP this is my first ever forum topic, i only hope iv pressed the right button!
I wanted to hear from other photographers and artists out there on why they do what they do. Until recently i didn't think about this at all, i just took photos.
Following a bit of a slump having worked my arse off trying to get a website set up and re build my portfolio after losing all my work, i had a bit of a "why am i doing this" moment. I answered my own question when i had a particularly good photo shoot and i was walking back home. It suddenly occured to me that in the moment of taking my pictures i was so focused on being in that moment nothing else was on my mind. I wasnt worrying about bills, shopping, work or anything else for that matter. My mind was quiet. Im no spiritualist but that is the only way i can describe how i feel when taking photos.
I would love to hear from other people and what it is that makes them tick.
The blog I need help with is landlightseaphotography.wordpress.com.
