I think that a great exercise for photographers involves not having your camera with you and also not using the camera on your phone at all. Instead, you should just immerse yourself in an experience lest you get a photo that is otherwise subpar and will end up buried somewhere in a social media feed only to be forgotten for a few double taps.
No camera can honestly capture a personal experience. Cameras know nothing about love, about creativity, about anger, they know nothing of emotions. But humans do--and sometimes we try to hide behind cameras to shield us from tough moments or spend all of an experience staring at the back of a screen/through a viewfinder vs actually paying attention to what's happening in front of us. . thephoblographer.com
