I understand the desire to want to capture a moment to hold on to forever and ever, but I have also learned from years of experience that trying too hard to pin it down generally ruins it. Case in point: compulsive filming. Lately, it seems like, every time I’ve been to a really cool live event, there are always a good number of people who are watching it unfold through the screen of their cell phone as they film it. And certainly, I can understand wanting to be able to share that with your friends later, to relive it the next day, but it feels like such a distraction, like for one’s first thought upon seeing something awesome, to be fiddling around with your camera, rather than letting yourself be present in the moment and taking it all in.
I mean, it doesn’t get any more HD than real life.
