The most significant change in my photography since beginning this daily practice is not what I expected. I don’t have a better mastery of my camera or editing software. In fact, almost the opposite is true. I’ve take the majority of pictures using my Canon 7D set on aperture priority using a 50 mm prime lens. I do take the photos in RAW format and almost always use one of the gorgeous presets by Rebecca Lily. A few tweaks and I’m done. No, the most significant change has come in the way I see. I am not sure I can explain . . . but I know this, where I used to look and see nothing, now I see a recognizable moment that speaks to my heart.
"Every moment is crucial. And if we recognize this and embrace it, we will one day be able to look back and understand and feel and regret and reminisce and, if we are lucky, cherish.”
