Capturing Moments with Heather Halotek ~ htekmo
I recently took my sister out with her new camera for a crash course on how to use it. Not that I am an expert by any means – not even close – but lesson one really speaks to the absolute best way I find to capture moments. This lesson has become a little joke between us and maybe even a mantra as well.
And here it is…Lesson One:
”You can’t take a picture if you don’t have your camera.”
Silly, isn’t it? And not very technical. But, if you think about it – it is good advice for someone who wants to capture moments.
I wasn’t one who always carted my camera around but last year I decided to take part in a 365 project and this really changed the way I took photos. It changed my perspective on how I looked at things. I used it as a journal and for one year my camera came everywhere with me.
Capturing moments is all about observation. Seeing or even feeling something ordinary, clicking, capturing and remembering the ordinary as something special.
Now that the project is over I am not obligated to carry the camera with me but I have to say that when I leave my house without it I always think “Heather, you can’t take a picture if you don’t have your camera.”
