I have been shooting for a while now. I have learned allot over the past year and half. I feel that I have a pretty good understanding of the technical aspects and of basic composition. I'm not bad at using Photoshop. The trouble is, I feel that I'm stagnating lately. Last couple of months especially. I feel that I have become a little too formulaic. I go out for a few hours of shooting, when I come back I can usually make 1 or 2 images that are not bad. But nothing that gets me excited anymore. I don't feel like I'm getting better. I have also gradually learned that the way forward does not lay in new gear. My goal is to develop a unique style and a portfolio of great images, as opposed to just good ones. I think one way of getting better could be learning about different techniques then I have grown accustomed to. On site photography specific techniques and post-processing techniques. I would like to learn about different ways of looking at composition especially. I spend time looking at great photographers work for inspiration, but I find it hard to learn from them. Having a unique body of work is really important to me. I don't want to just ape somebody's work. It seems like it gets progressively harder to find anything of use. There are so many books and sites for beginners but hardly anything of more substance that I am aware of. I have looked around locally for photography courses but all if not most teach allot of the same stuff for beginning photographers. If anyone could post any suggestions for books, sites or anything to help me break out of this rut I would appreciate it.
