A moment over the shoulder

A number of years ago I had the privilege of attending a workshop with a great inspiration of mine: David Alan Harvey. I came away from that week with a ton of important and subtle insight. One bit of wisdom was “Shoot everything”. This was not in the context of an assignment but in general life. If you see a beautiful scene or moment capture it! Even if there is no professional use for the image, especially if there is no monetary value, get the shot. You never know what it’s real, meaning internal, value could be.

I came across this frame in my archives a while ago. I remember turning away from what i was supposed to be photographing for the client, seeing the composition, shooting it and then getting back to work. Those ten seconds took nothing away from the job and added in this little slice of time.
