I know it has been some time since I uploaded. For the best part of a year, I have uploaded 1-2 pictures a day, however, in the last month I have really been slacking on that. I’m not 100% sure why. I just don’t feel too inspired at the moment. It’s not only affecting my photography too.
I have been out shooting a few times, and had those magical moments where I think, “Ah I know this will be a great shot! I know exactly how I want it to turn out!” I’ll then get come, and find out i’m not really feeling it anymore.
Hopefully the drive will come back soon. Photography is one of my major passions in life and it’s kind of empty while it’s on hold for now. Maybe it’s because i’ve been trying to shoot in the same location for far too long, so i’ve seen it all. Maybe i’m forcing out shots I shouldn’t. Maybe it’s because I just need to spend more time thinking about more original work. Maybe I need to work on my other passions for a while, I used to make music for a while and that really inspired me with a lot of my other works. I’m not sure what it is. I do know that I’ll still be uploading some shots that I am happy with in the meantime though; but they will be a lot more infrequent (a few a week maybe) until I get back into it :)
Anyway, just a short update of where I’m at. I have been working on some gif stuff recently which i’ll hopefully work through at some point as well. They take a lot longer than my pictures and they don’t really do much apart from zoom about Tumblr, since it seems to be the only site which likes them! One of my posts also made 300k notes the other day, so thanks for that! <3
This is Autumn.
Here are a few shots taken with my phone while I was out the other day. Still not had a good chance to go out with my camera though. Hopefully soon!
I’m looking back at some of the first pictures I took and uploaded to this blog… Wow times have changed! To think it wasn’t even that long ago. So many iPhone pictures! Maybe I should upload some new ones. Or not…
I use Lightroom for the most part. Sometimes I’ll use Photoshop CC if I’m stitching a panorama, or need to do something which requires layers. For example, I made Edge Of The Universe (http://stereocolours.tumblr.com/post/89583773018/edge-of-the-universe-adam-marshall-photography) with Photoshop after processing both of the layers used in the image in Lightroom. I’ll also use After Effects CC for my gifs / video work. Usually video stabilisation. I’ll use Lightroom to process a still, then re-work / re-create it in After Effects for the entire sequence.
