When a moment’s unfolding before you, the last thing you should be looking at is your iPhone or the back of your camera. Take some shots, sneak a quick glance at the viewfinder to assess the settings, recalibrate said settings, and shoot some more. Once the moment passes, be on the lookout for your next shot. Or if you’re at a social event amongst family and friends, put down that camera and enjoy yourself until the next shot wanders your way. If you got a good shot, it’ll be there waiting for you on your memory card, ready to be viewed, edited, Instagrammed, etc. when you get a moment to yourself.
Don’t be that guy with his face buried in his equipment. You’ll miss some great shots. And even worse, you’ll miss life.
