I wrote my most recent Fstoppers article about my hesitation to bring my camera, the one I use for work, on family outings with me. I've found that it's really hard to concentrate on spending time with my family when I've got my camera in my hands. The difference between 'taking' a photograph and 'making' a photograph seems to be at the heart of the issue for me, and I feel much more comfortable, and much more present, when I don't have a large camera body and lens in my hands.
To read the article, go check it out on Fstoppers and let me know if you've ever dealt with this issue! I'm going to follow up with another blog post about the difference between taking a photograph and making one, so it should be interesting!
