How have you guys managed creative slumps if/when you've come up against them? I'm doing enough paid work right now to pay the bills, but it's just feeling like going through the motions. Any and all advice is welcomed graciously.

that photo of portland is amazing..! any idea who took it? definitely an instagram worth following..!

I've been doing quite a bit of photo work at the velodrome recently, despite everyone hating on the Xpro1's autofocous i haven't found it too much of an issue (coming from a 6D).

Photos originally hosted on Facebook so potentially a bit soft..!

You just have to wait it out tbh, dont try to force creativity. Look at like photo books, magazines, read up on art history, look at works by well known photographers and read what they have to say like Jeff Wall or Rodney Graham. Look for inspiration in areas youve never really looked at before. You just have to wait it out for an idea to come. It takes me ages to think of a decent idea to dump my time (and a stupid amount of money) into, but in the end the wait is worth it.

Btw, cause I rarely post my photos on here anymore, I constantly update my tumblr. http://ryanrosephoto.tumblr.com/

I have a ton of photos waiting to be dumped on there but just have no time atm.

Cheers Ryan. Been a big fan of your recent series, they're looking great!

@Tom: That was me. Ahaha.

Yeah I've only been climbing for about a year and haven't done a ton. This was also out first time to the spot so we didn't know much about the routes and their cruxes. Next time I'm planning to repel down above a crux section and shoot it that way. Thanks for the critique!

No worries. I keep meaning to get outside and set up some riffing to shoot climbing properly but I always end up going on trips in even numbers so end up belaying and climbing


What sort of climbing is it predominantly in Canada? Trad or sport?

Hey sorry for the late reply. I think it's pretty wide spread. I know Squamish about an hour from Vancouver is like BC's mecca of climbing and they have everything. In and around it's mostly smaller crags with sport routes.

edit: Sorry, I didn't notice this question was already answered!

1. Get a cheap CPL

2. Don't shoot at night.

Also postwork is about as important as the actual shooting imo so practice working on stuff you've already shot, even if you're not happy with it you'll improve a lot faster the next time you go out. When you shoot focus mostly on composition and making sure the light is as good as it can be. When you go to shows/meets sometimes there's a lot of people around and the light is less than helpful so in most cases you'll have to wait a while to get it right, because of that it'd be good to pick up a cheap prime 1.8 too. As far as post stuff; try to keep everything subtle even if you're trying to achieve a certain look, while you're starting out it might seem easier to just slam all the sliders, but you'll end up with something that looks cheap even if it's "technically" correct.

Some stuff I've shot recently, I haven't settled on a go-to look so I usually try new stuff every time I shoot.

Thanks man,appreciate the tips! Im going to a local meet tomorrow so will practice again then, should be a fair few cars so i can experiment with shooting in different light conditions etc.
I have been experimenting with a few lights, one is an inspection lamp and ones a pretty bright battery powered floodlight.
That s13 is crazy too, really like the shot of that Salute
