I’ve been preparing less and less and practicing more “mindfulness” in photography.
What this means to me is not planning a shot, but rather photographing when the moment hits me. I find that when I do this, I allow photos to find me instead of actively seeking them out. The result is a more natural kind of photography that is an extension of what I am feeling at the moment.
Today I took my camera with me on a walk to get lunch. I snapped as I walked along with no preconceptions as to what I wanted to photograph. It was nice…
With the speed of my life these days, I must admit it’s not easy to take a photo a day.
I don’t like to just shoot anything to post here, as that’s not satisfying to me and sort of defeats the purpose. I like to really think about what I am photographing and what it means to me. But on a day like today, that’s not easy.
I worked a 12-hour shift today, with only a small hour break in the middle. So my photos today were taken from my car en route to work after I dropped my son off from school. I knew it would be the only chance I had to photograph.
It really represents my life right now, the huge amount of time I spend in my car and outside of my home. These are buildings I pass along the way every single day. They are a part of my routine now.
