How To Keep Shooting?

Many of you will relate to this article one time or another in your shooting career. As you keep shooting the same thing over and over again, you'll eventually hit a point where you'll say, "What the hell am I doing?". Some will fall and never get out of this abyss while the rest will bounce back stronger (hopefully). Each of us will have to find that spark to cling on to and although I can't teach you how to find it, I hope my own personal experience can be use by you one way or other to find yours.


Those who know me will know that I change gears and hobbies faster than you can say "fiveee deee maaak threee!" or "deeee eightttt hundred~!". Why do I do this? Well for one, I don't get stuck in the same thing over and over in a never ending loop. I can go to the extend of total gear overhaul just to get out of the comfort zone and finding new challenges in the new gears to create new images. This starts the learning curve all over again which rekindles the spark. I might also disappear for months on a new venture (cycling being my most recent one) and come back into photography after that stint with the same objective. 


You may also decide to take up different forms of photography for example macro, birding, etc etc just to break the norm. I think you're getting the idea :)


Well that's all for now till next time if I can think of something to write or if there's anything you want me to discuss on, do send me a note to : kevin@kevinchooi.com

  1. Totally agreed... :) I found myself having the same thought too but not until the extend of having a complete gear overhaul (yet) as that takes $ but the same could be applied to just about any other areas of interests and based on experience, they more or so able to reignite once's spark and interests on the hobby once again.

    Thanks for sharing.
