Being behind a camera is definitely one of the best places to be, but channeling all that creativity can sometimes take you away from appreciating your surroundings.
Get your Zen on with this article by Aaron Eisenberg. He lays out some excellent tips on being mindful of the moment, while still capturing it.
We plucked out a few of our favorites here:
- Rather than going into a place and snapping away, take time to look around and find the best shot or two. This saves digital storage, creates better photos and gathers greater memories!
- Spend a day taking notes rather than snapping photos. This can spark conversations and provide you with more depth to your documentation.
- Forget about likes and favorites while you’re on vacation. Wait to post your photos on social media until after you’re home again.

The windows of high rise buildings offer the best city views. Capturing that view, without reflections that make the city look like it’s under alien attack, can be a frustrating venture.
QT Luong, a photog famous for capturing all 59 US National Parks in large format, offers up some advice on avoiding window pain.
We love his “oh duh” tip of cleaning the window as well as the more advanced advice like ensuring the window is shaded from sunlight, using a rubber hood or dark cloth to make a seal with the window and removing your polarizing filter. Techniques that work well for DSLR and phone cameras alike!

Being creative is often considered a luxury. However, the folks at Café Art are taking steps to make art accessible for everyone.
Back in July, they handed out 100 dispo cams to homeless individuals around London. Allowing many of them a much needed creative outlet and the opportunity to be featured in a calendar being put together via Kickstater.
Check out a few of the photos and stories here. Contribute to the Kickstarter and receive your own calendar or original print. Proceeds go toward the artists, production costs and donations to offset the ecological impact of printing and shipping the calendars.
Wow. Café Art seriously knows how to be the good in this world.
