You’ve found yourself in a creative black hole. How to get out of the hole? Shoot it. Document your struggles but don’t let them crush you. Other suggestions:

  1. You stopped learning and became stagnant. Learn, try something new.
  2. Stop consuming and start creating again. There can be too much input.
  3. If you must consume inspiration, then consume outside photography
  4. Walk away. And dust off the gear when you come back. Stay fresh.
  5. Release your previous photo projects and ideas. They hold you back.
  6. Keep your best work, discard the rest. Like old clothes you’ll never wear.
  7. Limit yourself. You don’t need new toys. Use the gear you got.
  8. Also, learn your tools inside and out. Test the limits.
