  • this is a photo that i shot last summer and i’ve been sitting on it for eight months. i don’t know why i haven’t shared it. it’s one of my personal favourites and the memories behind it were beautiful.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
so since i got back home from hong kong, i’ve spent a lot of time trying to find my direction.. which path to follow? where to take my photography?.. i still don’t have that solution, but the most consistent answer has been to help other artists and share what i’ve learned along the way.  i’ve got those projects in motion, and it’ll take a little while before i’m ready to publish anything, but for the moment i wanted to start a conversation about the ‘instagram mentality’.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
there’s no valid reason why i couldn’t have shared this particular photo anytime in the eight months between then and now. but like so many others, i didn’t want to break the stupid theme i had on my page. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
i’ve felt as though i’ve pigeonholed myself - especially in the month of december - restricting myself to only posting those high-contrast deep-blue images with silhouettes.  sound familiar?  if you’re a photographer publishing on instagram, you know all too well about this kinda logic.  that’s what i call the ‘instagram mentality’. i’ve broken that theme in the last week by boldly posting these warmer-toned images. (yes, that’s the most exciting thing in my life this week ;)⁣⁣
⁣⁣
even though i’ve still got a very specific theme going on, it’s allowed me to share a small fraction of my broader work that otherwise wouldn’t have much of a place on my profile.  and from an outside perspective, that idea is still absolutely ridiculous.  i’ve got so many photos on my hard drives that don’t deserve to be collecting dust.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
so if you’re experiencing that same kind of creative burnout, then think about doing what i just did - pivot yourself!  right now i still have those self-imposed restrictions to share warmer photos, but it’s definitely helped challenge & inspire me to develop my style which will pay off in the long run. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
if you’ve got those photos that are collecting dust - you’re doing the world a disservice by not sharing your art with the world. ♥
