Going through a bit of a rut at the moment with my own photography, any advice for those that have been through similar ? Not sure if I'm being too hyper critical with myself. Any comments on these two appreciated.

 

Probably also going to knock medium format on the head for a while. When I'm not happy with the majority of shots I've taken, it gets very expensive very quickly.

I like both of them, but the second would be better with a more dramtic sky.

In terms of motivation, I tend to find reading photo books is a good way to generate enthusiasm. Also, checking out Youtube channels for photographers whose work you like.

 

Having a break can help though too.

Bought a couple of Paul Hart books (who I really like) and a Fay Godwin once recently, and having been watching anything on youtube with Micheal Kenna. Seeing all these great photos out there is kind of making me hypercritical of my own stuff though. Hopefully that'll help in the long run ?!

@Ste_S I'm still experimenting with post, this whole photography thing is still quite new to me beyond snapping stuff on an iPhone.  I think I just cranked up contrast on that flower stall (it's actually a public toilet with a flower stall attached). I cropped it differently here which I think I prefer.

Few more, mostly just walking around London over the past week or so.

Yeah, it turned out really well. Especially considering how much my hands were shaking when I took it, I'd left my gloves in my car which was parked in Birmingham. :blush:

Not been out in the snow too much this week, but the canal by my house seemed like a place for a good shot.  Got this one. I was waiting for a train to come over the bridge, the train got cancelled as far as I can tell  (it certainly never arrived) but some lady ran through which saved the day.

Outside work this afternoon. Set the camera to save in RAW and JPEG just to see the difference.  I think this is a good spot because the building is being hit by a lot of direct sunlight but you can see deep inside it to where the shadows lie.  I know you'd edit the files differently in post if you were being serious but these two images have the same settings too.

It's hardly surprise of the year I guess, but just how much more you can get out of RAW is impressive to me. The signs by the dude in the white coat , the shadows in the two smaller arches, just the difference in colour on the brickwork.
