Thread: Anyone here lost interest in photography before?

  1. #1

    Default Anyone here lost interest in photography before?

    Anyone one here ever lost interest in photography before? Whether its for a long period or short period of time. I am not referring to having to give up photography due to some serious or unfortunate things that happen in our lives or due to work commitments(too busy).

    Its like some other priorities took over. Some examples are: just gotten a girlfriend and rather spend more time accompany her, single guys rather spend more time looking for girlfriends, a new hobby/interest took over or simply lack of interest and lazy to go out to shoot. I am sure alot of us have experience this before or are even experiencing it now..

    Pat tor or searching for partner doesn't occupy the whole day so there's still time to shoot. Or can even take pic when out with GF / friends too.

    I have not experience this yet as i'm new to photography so there are many areas to improve and explored.

    Dun give up, keep shooting

    Yep, 'twas during film days still (dating myself on this one). Got so frustrated with the results (Nikon FM3 and FM10) yield-wise. one roll, good if you have 2-3 keepers. if you've got 5, fantastic! Gave up on the cost of film and its necessary developing costs, which includes OOF shots, skewed shots, etc.

    Got back into it with the immediate feedback of digital. Hasn't turned back to film ever since.

    think for passion to keep on burning, u have to continously do it. same for any other hobbies. usually when someone pick up a new hobby, she will be super on the ball, and after a while, loss momentum....

    i think u are slowly lossing the interest / passion. maybe u pick up photography out of rash decision? maybe take a break and dun think much about it...after sometimes, pick up the cam again and see if it has rekindle your passion

    You lost when you are running out of ideas liao. Sg so small, ideals mostly used up. Esp in this world, so many outstanding photos.

    I didn't lost interest yet, only waiting for the right time to use it. Although my skill can consider bad, I still use my SLR for baby photos. Esp baby move fast and you can ask them to smile. Recently I took some for my niece, so cute as she hardly laugh, only cry when sees me, haha! So, when you see the result, you are happy, they (bro n sis-in-law) also happy. Precious moment keep me going, even plan to get some good lens soon.
