Knowing why you are taking a picture is half way to knowing how to make it beautiful.

This weekend I met this little girl a perfect organically grown baby made by two of my favourite people. She filled my heart full of love so I couldn’t resist making a few pictures of her, because that is what I do and who I am, if I feel something I make a picture of it. 

We are all guilty of taking too many pictures and video’s reaching for the phone camera automatically without taking in the moment we are in, often missing out on the real experience. I find this sad. The art of photography for me has always been about capturing and living the whole experience. These days, for many, the experience is lost in the capturing of it. 

So take your time, consider how you feel in the moment then make your picture. Don’t take the picture then consider how you felt or you will only remember the click, the so called 'Kodak moment' and not the experience you were having that prompted you to make the picture.

Knowing why you are taking a picture is half way to knowing how to make it beautiful. 

Happy Snappy Thursday Everyone
