Did you "miss the moment" BECAUSE you had the camera?
Mar 4, 2013

Do you ever wonder .. or feel .. that you've cheated yourself out of the "moment" because you were so obsessed with getting in that shot.

Like a great fireworks display ..... everyone is going "ohhhhhhh"..... "Awwwwwwwwwwwww" as they see the glorious light show unfold before their eyes. You, however, have your face tucked in behind a viewfinder... wondering what shutter speed to use ... waiting for the perfect moment to trip the shutter ..... trying to compose the next shot... etc.

Like at a Wedding ..... most people sitting in their seats taking in the ceremony... listening to every word... feeling the moment. You, however, have your face tucked in behind a viewfinder... wondering what shutter speed to use .... largely ignoring what is being said as the ceremony progresses.

Like at an Air show as the performers fly by at high speed, doing incredible stunts ... or the blazing engines of jet fighters as they pass overhead and merge in unison with such precision and grandeur. You, however, have your face tucked in behind the viewfinder... wondering what shutter speed to use.. waiting for the perfect moment to trip the shutter... trying to predict / compose the next shot .... largely ignoring the "Ohhhhhh"'s and "Awwwwwwsssss"'s of the crowd.
