A while ago I felt just that way and I wrote a post about it, I even shared it with a few people, but I held back when it came to sharing it publicly. I want to say it was because I didn't want to be misunderstood as whining or being a complainer, but really, at the heart of it I didn't want to be vulnerable. At least not publicly. Funny thing is, that is exactly what I encourage others to do, to be brave, in spite of how we feel, and to be honest. So That's what I'm sharing with you. How I wanted to quit, and how making a choice about it changed everything! This was that post………………
In their book, Julia talks extensively about vision, and more specifically (en)Visionography, and how critical it is in the creation process. This is somewhat related to (although at a much deeper, philosophical, and modern level) the concept of "pre-visualization", which Ansel Adams so famously advocated.
I read Julia and Joel's wonderful book, and I even attended one of Julia's amazing workshops in Chicago (a transcending experience for me - I highly recommend it), yet being the young photographer that I am (notice I didn't say person, I said photographer), I still struggle with vision at times. Often I find a subject or scene that I like, but yet no matter how long I look at it, and regardless from how many angles, I still don't see that pristine printed piece of gallery-worthy fine art that is just waiting to be created.
The author, Alister Benn (http://alisterbenn.com), provides some very interesting food for thought on pre-visualization and intent, and some truths he's observed about the effect they can have on the creative process.
This article resonated with me because I now know I'm not alone and there are others in this boat. We know what direction we're going in, we know we're headed towards a beautiful place, but we're not always entirely sure of what it looks like. But in the end, we'll find out when we get there. :)
