Is creativity for an art something that a person is born with, or is it something you can develop?
Do I have a passion for taking photos? definitely not yet, at the moment my photography causes me more anger, frustration and wonder than I would care to have in my life. Wonders of what the hell I am doing? Wonder if I am trying to prove something to my self or someone? I know that I definitely want to learn how to take those “wow” photos, because, when I do take a good photo or learn something new it makes me happy and puts a bounce in my step.
I was in conversation with a friend of mine this week, who very generously shared his photographic journey with me. His words to me were that you either are creative or you not, so if not, stop the journey now and don’t waste your time!
So the question I have, is at what stage does a person have to come back to reality and acknowledge that they just don’t have that creative spark that people talk about, or, that there is something there and to give it a really good go?
