I am these days at a low point in my hobby. Down in the pits. I have a great digital SLR. I have great lenses. But at the end of the day, I think I suck at photography. I have studied shutter speeds. I know aperature. I know the sunny 16 rule. I know 1 over focal length for handheld shots. I know iso 6400. I know what the LR/Mogrify plug-in for Lightroom is. I have a POTN camera strap. In fact, I have TWO straps - black AND red. I know what DOF and PP and C&C mean when I had no idea what these terms meant when I joined POTN.
It's been a year of shooting digital, reading tips and tricks. Lots of lurking on this Board. Lots of bookmarks to ideas and tips. Yet, still, I can't shoot like you folks. My images just don't get above C+. I can't start a thread and get any 'GREAT shot...." or "wows" or any of that. My threads die silently, aside from the occasionall pity comment.
Is it possible I just suck at this hobby? I guess it's possible. Maybe I am technically minded.... which I am.... but I don't have the 'eye'?
Don't get me wrong. I still shoot better than any of my friends or anyone I know within my three degrees of separation. But I can't get to the B or B+ posting level of you pros on this site.
Is there a POTN week long seminar I should attend? What is the DAMN secret to bust through the creative stratusphere?
