All too often I forget to carry my camera with me, and I miss some great shots. Each time, I tell myself that I need to remember to bring it with me the next time I head out the door, only to forget again.
By neglecting to carry my camera with me on a regular basis, not only do I miss out on some wonderful shots, but I also don’t get the practice that I need to improve my photographs.
Are you doing the same thing? Are you making it harder to improve your photography while missing great shots?
The solution is simple:
DON’T FORGET YOUR CAMERA!
If you have your camera, you’re likely to use it. Using it more often will result in an increase in the quality of your shots. Practice makes perfect, right?
For the month of July, I’ll be doing this. My camera will go everywhere with me. Part of my job this month is to document the daily happenings around me. This will force me to grow accustomed to carrying the camera with me everywhere, and remember to take pictures. I will be treating this forced lesson as the beginning of a long-term habit. I have a nice little point-and-shoot camera that fits perfectly into any of my pants pockets. Soon, it will become a frequent resident of those pockets as it joins me on my daily adventures.
What About You?
Are you going to continue wishing you took better pictures? Will you keep regretting that you missed some great photo opportunities because you didn’t have your camera with you? Join me this month as we work to make a habit of always having our cameras with us.
