I've Lost My Mojo

Sunderland Synangogue
 Olympus E-M1, m.Zuiko 17/1.8

As the anyone who has been reading is aware, I've been fighting a reduction in my will to get out and shoot for a few years. What was once a near-daily activity now sees entire months where I don't pick up a camera. The last few months in particular have been terrible, I don't think I took a single shot in January, and November was in the single-digits. The terrible winter (no snow, grey and mucky) has definitely been a contributing factor.

I'm not going to quit shooting, although I have been tempted. I've managed to pair down my kit to just the E-M1, G3 and 3 lenses (14-42, 17, 60) with a 40-150 on loan. I'm simply going to keep the kit as it is for now and see if my shooting mojo improves in the coming year.


  1. I feel you, Adam. I feel like that in the summer, and often in the winter. My motivation is to get some new gear to try, like a new lens. Not have to be expensive, just some excuse to get me outside.

    1. I've been trying to avoid that actually. We'll see if I succeed.

      Maybe I can find a cheap 15/8 bodycap to play with on my G3.

    2. Ended up picking up a cheap little Oly 50/1.8 for fun.

    3. The Oly 50/1.8 is a gem. The later 50/1.4 is also awesome.
