ALWAYS KEEP A CAMERA BY YOUR SIDE

ALWAYS KEEP A CAMERA BY YOUR SIDE Sometimes I can spend days walking around with my stupid bag besides me when I could be free as a bird not carrying anything.

Why, why, why do I carry my camera everywhere I go when I know it is very unlikely I shoot something extraordinary everyday.

Well exactly for that same reason because it also means that I have absolutely no clue when the unexpected perfect picture will happen in front of my eyes.

As a matter of fact it does happen before my eyes when I don’t have a camera in my hands very often and by the time I get anything out, either the subject is gone or the light has changed and there is nothing to shoot anymore.

This is the way a photographer has to go with the flow I believe.

So about this very shot, I realized that back from the beach in a mediterranean island a few years ago.
My middle one was walking ahead of us on a late afternoon around 8pm when a big car drove on the way.
Since the island of Porquerolles only counts very rare cars that are allowed only on certain roads, the ground was dusty plenty and all that dust took off in a cloud, allowing the setting rays of sun to magically appear in the scene.

I barely had the time to get out the Nikon D90 I was carrying with me that day and shoot without even thinking if I was on manual, A, which were my previous settings.
I just shot and thought to myself, I hope it’s in focus and Lightroom will do the rest.

Well fortunately for me, my previous settings weren’t so bad after all and so I was good to go with the few shot I made straight away !

So nowadays, it is really very rare for me not to carry a camera around, wherever I am but you can be sure that the once in a month shot happens always when I don’t carry it and/or I am stuck with the wrong lens.
I am sure there are plenty of us feeling that way about everyday photography as well.

Nevertheless, keeping a camera with you at all times is the best guarantee to be able to shoot whatever comes your way !
