Photography in the Present Moment

In by Michael on May 19, 2013 at 10:27 am

I’ve heard photography described as a distraction, an activity that removes the photographer from the present moment, stifling his enjoyment, detracting from the authenticity of the experience.

This couldn’t be further from the truth.

The photographer is the master of the present. The photographer zooms in to the tiny thing, or zooms out to capture the large perspective of the moment. The photographer is hyper aware of the unfolding movement, color, and lighting all around, so that he can compose and expose it.

A good photographer guides the present and eagerly participates. The deeper you go, the better the photos.
