Photography Myth #1

An excerpt from Better Photo Basics by Jim Miotke

“Photography Myth #1- Photography Takes You Away from the Action

Some people say they prefer living life instead of taking pictures of it. That’s missing the point. Photography gets you more involved in your environment. Most of all, it gets you out of the house and into the sunlight, where a lot of what I call ‘present-moment living’ happens in the first place.”

This seemingly basic idea is a new discovery for me… this photography-as-a-catalyst for living MORE life instead of less, seeing deeper instead of scratching the surface, actually noticing the details instead of just assuming I caught everything.

Brilliant.
