In life, we often get caught up in what is happening right then and there in front of us and we don't see much else.
As a photographer, you have to see outside of the now and make memories for the future. You need to see the big picture. I find it helps me look at life in general better when I think this way as well. As I go for drives with the family or shoot events or assist weddings, I get the privilege of seeing everything twice. Once through the view finder and then secondly on the computer screen, it opens up my eyes to catch moments that could be missed or see a silly smile caught on someones face after its all said and done and get a good laugh.
In the instance of these two photos, it was quite a day. It was actually New Years Day this year, we went for a drive as a family. When we left our home, it was a full on snow storm but as we drove out into the country, there was no snow and it was warmer and then as we drove back, we came right back into the snow storm. It was only an two hour drive round trip but we saw two completely different places it seemed.
It makes you wonder how in life, we get so caught up in the moment of what is going on, sometimes we have to just take a few steps away and maybe we will see something different!
