Last night, several friends expressed that they were sad (or frustrated) that I wasn’t posting photos like my days of yore. One of them said they were scared because they don’t see most of the photos I take. They might’ve been half joking, but I think there was a hint of seriousness in their jokes.
I tried to explain that I shifted gears. Quality over quantity. Of course, they wouldn’t have any of that.
Seriously, that’s the truth. Priorities have temporarily shifted because of school. Would you carry a DSLR camera and lenses when you have college textbooks to read through and homework?
When the motivation strikes me, I go into Lightroom and look for photos I overlooked the first time around. But, after work or a long lecture at school, I don’t want to do anything. I’m usually camped in Google Reader catching up with feeds, or going through email. Those are my low energy tasks. But, when I have free time at home, I should be processing photos since I can’t do that anywhere else.
I need to schedule chunks of time or adopt the procrastination hack. (It definitely works.)
Other than sporadic paid gigs, that’s not happening right now.
On some level, that might be the wrong mentality. Can you blame me?
In conclusion, sorry, and I’m trying my best.
