How high your awareness level is determines how much meaning you get from your world. Photography can teach you to improve your awareness level.
I believe photography has increased my awareness level tremendously. I’m constantly noticing details and light that I wouldn’t have just a few years ago. Now that I’m starting to paint on top of my photos, I’m noticing even more detail in colors.
While driving this dirt road, I saw a few pelicans out of the corner of my eye at Upper Klamath Lake. I hit the brakes hard and backed up until I had this view and shot straight from the car. I did shoot this guy with my D7000 at first with my zoom lens. Then I thought I’d get a shot with the iphone. I actually really like both pictures. You should click on the one above to see it larger.
I believe I shot this with camera+ and then edited with PhotoToaster.
Heres the Nikon shot.
