And while I had originally thought that yes, passion for my art was reignited on that trip – it was only a spark at that point and not back to it’s full raging inferno. It is now December and I have fully regained my passion for my art. I have been experimenting with new techniques as well as continuing on with my usual favorite techniques and building on my favorite photographic themes. I have also regained my sense of optimism, and have started pursing my photo marketing efforts once again. I have also recently reopened my Fine Art America store which I am populating with images, and have several projects planned for 2016 including a book on Digital Flower Photography. And there is just something about an artist with passion for their art that attracts success. While I was down, and feeling passionless – I had no photo sales. Now with my rejuvenated attitude, I just sold something after only 1 week of reopening my online store. Without passion, there is nothing. If you are having a passionless moment for your art – don’t sell your gear just yet! It took me almost a full year to get my passion back, sometimes you just need to ride it out.
I gave a few tips to regain passion in my blog post "Loss Of Passion."
