Photography Changes Everything

Butterfly Reflection at totalfitnessphotography.com by Robert SchwarztrauberEvery once in a while I’ll stumble across an article that really reinforces what we’re talking about here at TotalFitnessPhotography.com.

This article, and the Smithsonian website where I discovered it, really explores the impact photography has on our personal life as well as the lives of society in general.

If you’d like a real boost in energy or new-found excitement about your photography, I encourage you to read this article on how photography changes everything.

You might even want to use it to justify your need to spend even more money on the next  new lens or other accessory you “need”!

I chose the butterfly photo to represent this post because most of us associate the butterfly with change. The complete metamorphosis from one creature to another. From a lesser form (the caterpillar) to the striking beauty of the free-spirited, high-flying butterfly.

I think it well represents the change photography brings to our life.

(I’ll save the photo of me and Bill Feather from the Smithsonian Institution for another story!)

Here’s that link to the story by Dwight Pinkley, U.S. Foreign Service Officer on assignment in Switzerland, who writes about how photography encourages a heightened sense of awareness:
