I embrace the struggle to find images. Photography isn't easy and actually, the harder it gets the more rewarding it becomes. I love the journey.
That being said, there are a few things I like to do to try to find some inspiration before giving up.
One of them is to think about other photographers and what they would do if they were to photograph what I'm attempting to capture. I try to visualize them next to me, and look at what they do -and hey, sometimes they just leave!-.
I also think about their work from similar locations, "can I make something like that around here?".
I love to explore locations that photographers I admire have visited in the past, and place myself at the spots where they made their images. Being able to see what they saw is priceless and can teach you a lot about photography.
Next time you are struggling finding images, try to think about what your favorite photographer would do if they were in your position.
