A while ago I challenged myself to bring a camera with me when going out, capture my wanderings and reconnect with photography. Hence all the nature shots, travel pics and photo collabs here on the blog lately. 😉
I’ve been feeling a bit down regarding my portraiture work. Something is off… It’s not that I don’t like the photos I took since I’ve started it 2 years ago, I do love them, and I’m proud of everything in that website. BUT it’s like taking a path, enjoying the walk, and then realizing it didn’t quite take me where I wanted to go.
It’s weird to explain, or maybe I am the weirdo!
Anyway, I’ve been chatting with Claudia lately – she’s also into photography and has been through a similar career change (read her blog post here) – and just being able to talk with someone who is in the same boat kind of helped me reevaluate things. Thanks Claudia!
I don’t think I will get into new portraiture projects just yet, but at least I feel there’s hope. And I don’t feel as guilty for taking a break on portraits anymore!
In the meantime, I will keep shooting spontaneously and posting here on the blog.

Did you ever had to reconnect with photography (or any other passion)?
How did you do it?
