    Yes, when it's really cold and my fingers freeze to the body.

    I love taking pictures of my daughter but sometimes I think I'd like to take pictures of something else I just don't know what. :er:

    Yeah, it's amazing that I can go out with my camera and find nothing interesting to photograph and yet I see so many photos of mundane subjects that look amazing due to the photographer's skill in finding different perspectives.

    Force yourself to leave the camera in the bag for a week or two. By then, hopefully a little inspiration will infiltrate you. Seems to work for me.

    I've had my camera for a little less than a week (1 week tomorrow! boy how time flies :lol:) and take several shots every day. Every day except for 1 I maxed out my SD card which is only 512 mb.

    I'm sure photography is like all areas of life, if something starts to get boring, such as work or a hobby there's really only 2 options;

    1) Let it go for a week w/o thinking about it, and;

    2) Find ways you can change it up. For photography it could be as simple as trying a style you've never really tried, and just expirementing. Stepping outside what your "phographic comfort zone" is.

    Hopefully the bug bites you again soon! I can't beleive I took so long to pick this back up, I love it. :D
