I will often talk about “eliminating distraction” when looking for my next image.
As I find my perfect perch,I will survey the landscape in front of me scanning the horizon for any distractions.
I place the camera up to my eye,looking through the viewfinder for that perfect composition, I say to myself “are there any distractions”?
When all looks right I gently press the shutter capturing that moment in time.
I review my new found masterpiece and reflect on what I just created thinking did I “eliminate all the distractions”…not just in my image but in me?
I feel good about my latest capture and I gain a new found sense of serenity from the creative process I just went through.
Sometimes just standing on a rock and looking at your surroundings can be more than a new image but a new way of “eliminating distraction”.
