I don't take enough photos. Correction: I don't take enough of the right kind of photos. I know we all have phones in our hands and we speak Instagram, but I still feel as if something is missing. I'm not capturing what I should be capturing -- the spirit of us, of my family, of us together and individually.
I stopped by Tara Whitney's blog yesterday, and thought, now that's what I need to channel. Of course I could be nowhere as brilliant, but there is something intuitive about her photographer's eye, something that translates to real and authentic and life-as-she-sees-it, that has me wondering if this aspect can translate to my own photos.
I've been going through old photos a lot lately. I don't think it's just nostalgia that motivates me. It's curiosity. The imperfect, unposed photos are my favorites. I selected one of them to use on a recent Crate Paper layout:
I want a little bit of this photo to be in every photo I take.
