Channeling Boredom

Shoot yourself bored; then you can get to the interesting stuff. A big part of my growth has been to get sick of the mundane, then to keep going.

“I can’t make this same photo again.”  Alright, what’s a new way to look at it then.

I think it’s a common problem, and one I struggle with often. We get tired of where we’re at, tired of the groove we’re in and give up. Breaks are good, but I think the most exciting creative advances for me have been when I push through boredom. Keep shooting…

Once you’ve been through that cycle a few times, you often see it for what it is. I get excited, thinking about what’s on the other side of the struggle.
