I've been spotty at best at posting in my PAD of late. It felt good to get that first year.
At first I had no doubts about going on but I've had trouble just getting a couple months into the year.
At first the goal was simple, take a picture every day. Not hard to do, but I didn't feel that was enough.
I wanted more and I knew I was capable of more. Ideas, composition, contrast, focus, iris... I do that in my
everyday job, but now I was doing that as an artistic outlet for my own edification. Soon I was getting the
attention of other photographers and the swapping of ideas and influences pushed me to try and do more.
I wasn't happy with just a snapshot on most days, I wanted to take more compelling/artistic photos.
I think I achieved that to some regular degree over the year.
Now, I'm faced with reevaluating my goal and my motivation. It's not easy to take a compelling photo every day.
Is it even necessary? Is it enough to just take a snapshot?
Is it enough to just go for the discipline of taking pictures everyday?
Does there need to be more?
I'm thinking of taking a break to recoup and to think about all of this....
