What a great word, so maybe I have vemodalenitus! I’m so pleased there’s a word for it 🙂
It is hard to create something new. Some people are of the opinion you can’t shoot flowers or sunsets etc. as they have been done to death already. I completely disagree with this, I think it just makes it more of a challenge to make it your own.
I don’t really have any issue with photographing common subjects, all subjects are common anyway, faces, landscapes, cityscapes, nudes etc. ; If we didn’t shoot such things there wouldn’t be anything to photograph!
My issue is not shooting the same subject matter, but shooting the same ideas, ideas that have already been done a million times.
