Owain, I to have not shot much for myself over the last few months and what i have shot for myself I have not been very happy with. My professional work has been so busy since July so I have been just able to keep up with that and getting ready for an exhibit in March has zapped most of my time and energy. I do have some time now and I plan on some real visual soul searching starting in a couple of days.
I keep an eye out for your work in the usual places and hadn't seen much posted of late. Preparing exhibitions is always stressful, I never have time to do much else when I'm shooting for one. Prepping one from existing work is no easier, editing down, re-working and everything that goes with that.
Time and mindset make a huge difference to the way you see the world. A big part of your work is spending time out there shooting, being there to capture what comes along for you - if you've not going time to be out there making that work, the work isn't going to happen. And the way you perceive the world with tired or stressed out eyes is very different. These are things I've learned over the past couple of months, but still give myself a hard time over ... not very kind to myself
