Dear friend, one of the best ways to stay motivated in your photography is this: shoot more ambitiously!
This means, experiment more with your compositions. Get closer to your subjects. Try more ambitious compositions, like layers, getting more depth, using wider angle lenses (like 24mm, 28mm, or 35mm). This means interacting with your subjects more, asking for permission, or being more aggressive in your street photography and “working the scene” by shooting 25% more than you think you should.
Above all, don’t let your gear or equipment be a deterrent or distraction to you. Which means, you can shoot (today) more ambitiously, more brazenly, and take riskier composition chances without buying any new camera or equipment.
Use your phone, and constantly experiment with new approaches in your photography. Shoot different subject matter, capture different emotions in your photography, and always seek to master photography for yourself!
