Is Procrastination The Thief Of Time?
Is it procrastination when life takes hold?
- Technical issues
- Lack of inspiration
- The blues
- Power cuts
- Shots not working how they should
More of a conspiracy than procrastination. What I have found since I started photography 4 years ago is that my creativity is not a natural thing, and that I do find it hard to be spontaneously creative. I lack that gift. My creativity and drive comes in spurts and hobbles along. My studies are a bit like a jigsaw puzzle, some days they fit together to work well and some days (more than I would like) they don’t.
I am envious of the:
- Better organised student
- Those who are better equipped (mentally)
- The naturally creative
EVY is challenging, and I enjoy being challenged. I will get there in the end, but it will take me a lot longer than I envisioned. My tutor is great and so are all the fellow students I have met at study days or interacted with online. There will be many other students out there like me, which is reassuring that I am not alone. We will support one another and all get through.
