Project 365 – Day 17: Frustration
I DO NOT LIKE THE QUALITY OF THE PICTURE IN THIS THUMBNAIL IMAGE. SO PLEASE CLICK THE PICTURE TO SEE IT IN FULL RES. THANK YOU!”
I get so mad at myself when I struggle to find that creative spark. I see a lot of other photographers and their amazingly creative images, and I kick myself. “Why can’t I come up with something like that? Why do I struggle to come up with creative ideas, while others seem to do effortlessly?” While it may be ridiculous for me to assume that other artists find inspiration with ease on a daily basis, I’d say that this image does a fairly good job of conveying how I feel. 🙂
For anyone interested in how I shot this, I had a flash at 1/16 power at my feet, camera right, pointed up, through an 8 inch snoot. It also had a full “salmon” gel over it that, as you can see, looks much more satanic-red than it does salmon. lol I’m standing up in the shot, and the camera is about at neck-level, pointed up slightly as well. It’s close enough to me that the end of the tripod legs were at my feet. So the camera itself was probably about 3 ft away.
