We are all busy. Our days are filled with routine and obligation. I know that there isn’t much downtime. So how is it possible to find the time to photograph those everyday moments when you're so busy? It's not all that challenging! Incorporating photography into your daily is pretty easy to do. Here are a few tips to help you do just that:
I like to ensure my camera is visible. Keeping my camera in a safe and visible location reminds me to pick it up and capture something every single day. I also like to have user-friendly exposure triangle settings ready in my camera. This way, I’m less likely to miss a moment as it unfolds before me.
I love my photographer’s notebooks! I have quite a few. I am constantly jotting down notes, ideas and inspiration that come to me about how and what everyday moments I want to capture. If I’m feeling stuck or uninspired, I take a quick look at my notes, which are bound to motivate me to pick up my camera!
This might seem a little silly, but trust me, it works! You wouldn’t miss an appointment, right? Scheduling a date with your camera prioritizes photography. It doesn’t need to be a long date. Short and sweet works. Try 10 minutes to start. Capture that simple everyday moment that you’ve meant to!
My camera is not small. I find if I’ve made an effort to shove my camera into my purse and take it out of my house with me, then I’m going to make an effort to use it. I enjoy nature. Being outside is invigorating, so we go on a lot of nature walks. My camera is always by my side. My children have fun playing, and I capture them doing just that. Wonderful, memorable, childhood, everyday moments preserved! Yes! Put it in the win column!
This tip is fantastic for making the most out of a single photoshoot. Varying perspective to your subject will get you a ton of unique looks. A few ideas to try here:
You do not need to be superhuman. There are days when picking up the camera is just not possible, and that’s okay. Try again tomorrow.
There's no finish line in photography. Photography is a journey, and it's ever-evolving. Remember to go at your place and enjoy the moments of learning and beauty along the way.
