“I only know how to approach a place by walking. For what does a street photographer do but walk and watch and wait and talk, and then watch and wait some more, trying to remain confident that the unexpected, the unknown, or the secret heart of the known awaits just around the corner.” – Alex Webb

I love to wander the city and shoot photos. I used to go every weekend. But lately I'm just finding it harder to get out and shoot. I carry my camera with me just about everywhere I go but I'm just not motivated to use it. What's wrong with me? What do you do to motivate yourself to shoot? Let me know in the comments.

Next week is "Silhouettes".  Just that.  You can find something you've done if you want to dip your toe in, or you can go all-out.  You may or may not win, you may not get many votes at all, and few comments to be sure, but hey.  Even if it doesn't get much attention there, it'll likely get more attention here.

Nice! Get it before Google kills it!
 
Today we’re making the Nik Collection available to everyone, for free.

Photo enthusiasts all over the world use the Nik Collection to get the best out of their images every day. As we continue to focus our long-term investments in building incredible photo editing tools for mobile, including Google Photos and Snapseed, we’ve decided to make the Nik Collection desktop suite available for free, so that now anyone can use it.

The Nik Collection is comprised of seven desktop plug-ins that provide a powerful range of photo editing capabilities -- from filter applications that improve color correction, to retouching and creative effects, to image sharpening that brings out all the hidden details, to the ability to make adjustments to the color and tonality of images.

Starting March 24, 2016, the latest Nik Collection will be freely available to download: Analog Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, Silver Efex Pro, Viveza, HDR Efex Pro, Sharpener Pro and Dfine. If you purchased the Nik Collection in 2016, you will receive a full refund, which we’ll automatically issue back to you in the coming days.

We’re excited to bring the powerful photo editing tools once only used by professionals to even more people now.

+Michael J. Coffey - It's probably more than you need. No reason not to download it but I doubt you'd use it much.

http://erickimphotography.com/blog/2016/04/29/never-stop-learning/#more-28707 i think Eric nailed it for me when he said this: Learning can happen this way as well— you can hit a “plateau” where you don’t find anything interesting. Your curiosity dies a little bit— and you feel less like a child, and more like a “serious” grown-up. i started a new job in December and I've been learning A LOT! more than i expected, actually. there a...

I can make that push happen, you know.  But if your brain is full and your body has no energy, it may not do that much good.  Write down the ideas.  Come back to them when you've freed up some space on the mental hard drive.

I'm going through this myself right now. Trying my best to find my inspiration. I force myself to get out and shoot.

Introduction
I'm just a guy that carries his camera everywhere he goes.  If I see something interesting, I shoot it.  Sometimes I ask, sometimes I don't.  I prefer to ask forgiveness rather than permission (most of the time).
