Why I Hate And Love Photography
I love and hate taking pictures.
The moment and mood have to be just right for me to enjoy the process and to be satisfied with my pictures once they are taken. This past weekend I took a lot of pictures and I realized something about myself through the process: I like taking pictures when I plan a photo shoot, but hate taking pictures when I’m trying capture the spontaneity of a moment. I love planning an adventure around photos, but hate planning photos around adventure. There are just so many moments that are impossible to capture completely (a sunrise, the stars, the red sky as the sunset, etc…), but at the same time there are some moments that were meant to be captured (silly and sentimental moments that you want to remember).
And I’m learning that there are some moments I desire to leave alone, and other moments I want to capture as markers to remember life by.
Below are some photos from this weekend’s photo shoot:
