Stuck in a rut!

Does anyone else suffer from this?

Lately I seem to be stuck in a rut. I can’t seem to get all the fantastic compositions in my head to come to fruition through one reason or another. What I am getting with my camera is not what I envisage in my mind of how I want the shot to come out.

Then there are the times that I think I have a cracker of a shot, only to find out when I upload it to my computer that it is not a crisp image. I seem to suffer from unsteady hands a lot, even fast shutter speeds aren’t getting a really crisp image : (

Oh and the other day I travelled a 4 hour return trip only to find out that somehow I had bumped the ISO on my camera up to 1600 so my images from about 20 images into the day were all ruined. That will teach me for just snapping away and not checking everything.

I just seem to be stuck in a rut at the moment and am lacking confidence. I know I’m still learning and I know I have a lot to learn and I know that I want to “have it all now” and I’m impatient, but it is all just getting to me a little.

Anyone ever feel like this?

I’m hoping to snap out of it soon.
