It's Not Always All About Photography

I absolutely love photography, as I'm sure many others of you do too.  I love shooting sports and concerts, and love looking at what cool photos I got from each event. I enjoy learning how I could take certain shots better, and what shots worked that I should make sure to get the next time I do a similar event.

With that being said, no matter what type of photography (or job) you do, don't forget that life isn't just all about that!  Take some time out every once in awhile to do something completely different. I'm not just talking about spending time with your family, since you should be doing that anyways, I'm talking about another hobby that you may have, or something else that you want to learn about, without worrying about ISO or depth of field.

Today I went dirt biking with my friend Randy. I'm a much worse rider than he is (I just started late last year), but it's something I've been trying to get better at, yet I haven't had a whole lot of free time to do. He took me to Rampart Range and was very patient with my quirks about hills, and how slow I was riding.  He helped me become a better rider, even in just the few hours we were out there.  I had a lot of fun, even without my camera.

It's not always all about photography.
