Slowing Down

Recently,on the 2 out of the last 3 trips out shooting in London i’ve been getting frustrated with my results. Ok some days are better than others, but lately no days seem better than others!

What could be so wrong? I know the streets down there really well, was I to familiar? stuck in a rut? or just walking around missing the obvious? Hmm… I put my feelings out there on ‘tinternet looking for suggestions, it was suggested that I should slow down, take more time  and observe. I must admit that I don’t tend to hang around, I don’t know why, it’s just how I walk…. fast (ish).

So was my objective this time out, slowwwww down take more in and observe the area I was in for a while. It was made easier to do due to the pissing down rain, so I was seeking shelter and staying around to see what came along.

I gotta say, it did make a difference, I got a couple of results. It seems that as I stuck around, ideas for different angles etc. popped into my thick head and the creative side got explored a lot more than if I was operating at my usual speed. So I think I will carry on exploring this technique, it is worth a try.
