to approach photography a little differently lately. Mainly to simplify but to also be purposeful. So what does that mean? For me that means using a handheld light meter...paying attention to the light...being aware of what images I want to capture...and keeping the post processing to a minimum. I feel like I am a lot more conscious of the process by slowing it down...and present in a way I haven't ever really been before. As photographer Rachel Devine blogged about - it's mindful shooting - and that's got to be a good thing.
