Iceland I love you

If Scotland is my first love photography wise then Iceland is the equivalent of a very exciting holiday romance.

There is so much for a photographer to capture. I went on a cheap package with icelandair and booked a couple of tours with a local company rather than on the massive tour buses with complaining tourists that believe that the northern lights should happen because they paid for it. I will post more about my adventure on a different post as this is about photography.

Photography Block

Sometimes, I can love and hate photography in equal measure. When I am out and feeling inspired then it’s great, but when I want to go out and take photographs but stuck in the mode of done that a hundred times and uninspired I feel like f**ck it I am going sell this stuff and go and do something different.

I think everyone feels like this, my solution, just get my ass out and take some pictures because the process of just getting out the house and taking pictures is therapeutic in its self and after all I took up photography to get me out of the house or hotel rooms that my previous job meant I had to stay in.

I had a moment like this recently, so after giving myself a good talking to I left the house at 3pm and went to the kelpies in Falkirk. After taking a few shots and nearly falling in the canal because I was too busy chimping, I came back with a couple of ok shots but more importantly re-energised. So if you are feeling like this at the moment, get out the house and take some shots, it’s not always the final product but the process which is important.

Many thanks for the views and likes recently, please post some comments on how you overcome photography blocks. Have a great weekend.
