As we spoke about recently, in recent months I’ve photographed significantly less than before.
I still consider myself an active photographer, even though I’m less active than any time in perhaps 15 years.
Even if I didn’t take a single picture in six months (incredibly unlikely) I think I’d still feel like a photographer because of how my mind and eyes seek out compositions and scenes that I find interesting and beautiful, regardless of whether I have a camera with me.
Being a photographer is as much a way of seeing and thinking and navigating through and processing the physical world, as it is simply being someone who uses a camera.
Enough photography, for me, is as much as I need, without feeling I’m neglecting it, or craving it, without that need being fulfilled.
How about you, how much photography is enough for you?
