These are the things I do to avoid the things I should be doing..
I recently spent two weeks in Europe traveling to Copenhagen Denmark, Rome, Posatano Italy and Palermo Sicily and I didn't bring my camera... on purpose. Before I left on my trip lots of people were telling me "its a great photography opportunity!" and asking if I was going to bring my camera. Here was the problem.. I knew if I brought my camera I couldn't bring just one lens.. That also meant I would be lugging around a ton of camera equipment. If your anything like me, when I have my DSLR with me im taking tons of photos, and that's what I was afraid of. I recently watched a interview of a National Geographic photographer who talked about how photographers get so caught up taking photos they forget to make memories because they are constantly seeing the world threw a small camera lens. I didn't want that to happen to me.. so I ditched my large camera!But I couldn't go with absolutely no camera! I decided to invest in a GOPRO HERO 5. This camera is waterproof and fits in your pocket! I never had to worry about it getting wet and it took awesome photos, of course I had my phone too. In the end I still took a lot of photos but they were just snapshots, I wasn't focusing on taking the best shot with the best lighting. Now that the trips over im happy I left my camera home and still got some cool shots to look back on! But most importantly I have amazing memories. Here are my favorites! All shot on the GOPRO HERO 5 and an I phone 6s.
