Post 70: How going to Wyoming affected photography for me

December 02, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

I've always been a big supporter of personal work. By that, I mean I think making photographs (or whatever it may be) for your personal enjoyment is incredibly important. However, this past year, I've made almost no personal work. I've taken a ton of photos for work, but I can't help but notice the huge drop off of personal work. I think I've finally come up with something to blame.

 

In 2014, my wife and I went to Wyoming. Prior to Wyoming, I spent a lot of time "practicing" for our vacation by taking photos of various wildlife which was the bulk of my personal work that year. Any of you who have gone to Grand Teton National Park and/or Yellowstone National Park will probably agree that after going there, coming home to a place like Wisconsin isn't quite the same. I love Wisconsin, but after taking photos of things like mountains, pronghorns, elk, bears, and bison roaming across geysers, the wildlife and landscapes of Wisconsin just aren't quite the same as they were before we went. I wouldn't say Wyoming "ruined" photography for me, because I still love it, but I think it has certainly made it harder to motivate myself to get out and shoot. 

 

Fortunately, the amount of personal work I've been doing lately has been steadily increasing. I'm also planning on acquiring a new camera soon, so that should definitely get things going.
