The Controller

I recently bought a Behringer X-Touch Mini, to use when editing images in Lightroom.
It literally took minutes to set it up, and then I were up and running.
I am still making minor adjustments to the individual knobs and buttons, but mostly everything is where I want it now and I have gained a much more organic workflow, when editing.
As a side-effect, the time spent on each image has been brought down.

What now?

Once again, I have ended up in this frustrating situation where I feel like I am going nowhere.

I feel like I haven’t taken a decent picture in ages. Hell, to be honest it feels like I haven’t had time to pick up the camera in ages.

Obviously this leads to a situation where I am picking my weekly pictures from my backlog, to keep up the “Post 1 picture each week” tradition that I have been practicing for close to eight years now.

As I strive to be better and better it feels frustrating having to use some of the older pictures that has been postponed because I (at the time) had better pictures to choose from.

What now? Where do I go from here?

I guess I’ll have to try to free up time to create time slots where I can take the camera for a walk. Sadly this means something else needs to be pushed back…

What do you do to free up time to do the things you want to do? Write me back in the comments below…

Thoughts on how to become anxious

The Minimalists have written a short but very precise recipe on how to become anxious.

I think it is spot on… ..especially the “go to the mall” part 🙂

..and yes.. I know it was written back in March, but it is still relevant!

I like the Minimalists.. they really know how to drive home the point in short Minimal Maxims. This is one of my favorites:

Forcing yourself to make money from a hobby is a great way to kill your love for that hobby.”
