How to revive your passion for photography?


deutsch_s1

As someone who loves warm temperatures and sunlight, during the cold season I feel like a fish out of water. Even more depressing than the cold I find long nights and short, gloomy days. The cold season is the wrong element for us photographers, hungry for beautiful light. Photography is very challenging hobby anyhow, but the vast majority of the challenges can be mastered with additional practice, experience and preparation. But one can hardly exchange gills for lungs…

Although during the cold season I love nothing better than to spend my free time watching TV, I force myself to get my backside off the couch. For me the key seems to be holding my camera in my hands. As soon as I do that, I get reminded of all the beautiful moments which I wouldn’t have experienced, had I not gotten into photography. The first 5-10 steps from the couch to the camera are the hardest. With the camera hanging around your neck, you’ve already done half the work. 😉

One more thing that helps me, is reading about photography, especially about how other photographers deal with the topic of not losing or rediscovering one’s passion for photography. Knowing that I’m not the only one having to struggle with this problem, motivates me to make those initial 5-10 steps. 🙂
