So, here is what was on my mind this morning. I was thinking that the idea of capturing has more to do with recognizing a moment and trying to freeze it, so to speak, within the camera.
Creating seems to have more of a connection with posing, staging, arranging, etc. for me.
Certainly there is overlap when making these distinctions, if they even need to be made. Just because a moment has a creative element involved doesn't make it any less meaningful or important. Sometimes the creative aspect, whether it be arranging the subject or adding some post-production edits, can give the captured moment a little extra emotion, drama, depth, or focus.
What do you think?
Hope you enjoy the moments I captured of my little ones making their own creations. :) I had fun toying with some new (free!) Aperture presets that I downloaded here. I used "1971 Unforgettable Trip" on the last image. The rest are unedited.
