    I have been taking photos for the best part of 4 decades. As time has gone on - and I have to say more recently, i find that I am spending more time playing on photoshop than actually going out taking photos. I have just tried to set myself monthly projects and a project 52 to get me back to getting out more with my camera. I have also set up a "Journal" website to record all I do this year to get and keep motivated. There are probably loads of other things I could do, but What do you do when your inspiration for taking photos dips ???? Any thoughts anyone ? Sad

    I usually drink more wine and beer until it comes back. Smile

    Recently I have not been getting out as much but it is more down to lack of opportunity than motivation. My inspiration did did a while ago and I didn't fight it, I had a break during which I took my camera along purely for 'snapshots' and gradually I found the desire to take 'proper' photographs returned.

    You could always try a totally different genre to your normal work, get your grey cells working.

    It sounds like you've made a very positive start to addressing this issue.

    The forst thing I'd advise is not to worry - a quick trawl through the forums here will show that many photographers on here go through such lulls. The second thing I'd advise is not to force things - the more you do this, the more you worry, the worse it can get (certainly this has been my experience). Rather - go with the flow. If your mojo's gone, give it time and it will come back.

    Better weather will help in getting out and about, I go through the same thing from time to time but the bug always bites and I am off and running again, A case of leaving nature take its course and not pushing things as already said by Sherlob.
