I was looking through my photo archives and came across this photo.
While processing the photo it had me thinking about some of the amazing photo trips I’ve had. It also got me excited for upcoming trips.
One of the things I keep thinking about is trying too hard, and thinking too much, about certain photo opportunities.
Instead of just absorbing where I am and being in the moment, I sometimes get sucked into making sure I get “the shot” that I want.
While reflecting on this reflection photo, it made me realize that I don’t have to try, but rather just enjoy the time.
More so, enjoy the photography process. I find myself more recently not thinking about technique or tools or process. But rather just making photos.
So I encourage you to do the same. Learning technique is important in photography. But knowing how to put that behind you as you just take in the moment, is also important.
So stop thinking too hard and just enjoy the photographic moments.
