I came across this short article on the Digital Photography School website with a poignant reminder.
At your next family gathering, bring your best camera and your best lens. The next time you go out for drinks with a friend you haven’t seen in five months, bring your camera. Take the photos you normally take, the full body ones, the campy ones, the highly posed ones. But also make an effort to snap one solid portrait. Natalie has a good post on helping take natural looking portraits.
Not just okay photos, but one good photo of your loved ones, at least once a year. Take the time.
