    Hi everyone, I am really struggling to do my Photography shoots. I have no idea what is wrong with me, I have so many ideas but can't bring myself to do them. I was doing really well at the beginning of the year but all of a sudden its just stopped. I've gotten to the point where I am sat with my camera all ready to do it and I just sit there because I feel hopeless. I've recently moved so I am not doing well with friends..this results in me taking Photographs of myself or asking people who do not want to participate. I wanted to do portraiture as part of the weird and wonderful theme as I love the different ideas I have come across. I am feeling really lost right now and I don't want to ruin what I have already achieved.

    :hugs: I know the feeling. I know it's not easy, but maybe you need to work on making friends having moved and the rest will fall into place, hopefully!

    Ah, crikey. I guess you should keep reminding yourself that the deadline is looking (though still time to do well) and you want to get the best grades possible as well. I'm not sure what they're looking for but maybe you can find things to photograph that don't need other people in them (unless in the distance or unrecognisable or something)

    Hi,

    I can't relate with the moving and friends bit but whenever I get photographer's block, I just go out and shoot randomly. For a day or two, I completely change my environment and it's worked well for me as it's allowed me to try different styles and broadened my experiences somewhat.

    I just take those days to just relax until I get back into my normal rhythm.

    Shoot something other than portraiture for a couple of days.
    Thank you so much I will try this, You have no idea how much I needed someone else to talk to! :hugs:

    I know how you feel, I also struggle massively with motivation and I get really quite bad writers block. It sucks :/

    I don't really have any advice because I'm struggling with it myself but have some hugs. :hugs:
