Why do we take photographs? For most of us it's simply to record memories. Special occasions, travel, the amazing lunch we had yesterday with our friends, milestones in our lives. As a photographer for more than 30 years, I've spent my share of time behind the camera. My only regrets are the photos that I've missed.
ShootLighter is all about lighter, mobile friendly photography. Lugging around less gear can enables a mindset change to a "less is more" approach to shooting. More time focused on what's around you and less time wrestling with large or excessive gear. Recently I discovered a product called Narrative Clip from a company out of Sweden. Narrative Clip is a wearable camera about the size of a U.S. silver dollar that captures an image automatically every 30 secs as long as you're wearing it. As a street photographer I immediately saw the potential not only for street, but for wear-it-and-forget-it travel documentation as well. I ordered one right away and just received it yesterday. I'll post a review after I've tested it for a week or two. This should be interesting.
