Making The Time For Photography Revisited

Early this year, I posted two articles on making the time for photography in your daily life. The articles are still relevant. And I think the topic resonates with a lot of us. If you missed the articles, here's the links:

Life moves fast. We're all busy. For many of us, photography is not our primary career. That's certainly true in my case. I have a full time job. I also run a children's toy business with my lovely wife. As I said in the articles, from ~6am though ~10pm my time is already booked. In my world, December is extra-maniacal - there's a lot more toy sales (not that I'm complaining!).

There are a few pockets of time here and there throughout the day. You know the kind I'm talking about. Windows of time too small to start something significant, yet large enough you feel like you're wasting time just standing around. I use those to work photography into my daily life.

Read the articles above, all the details are there. And take a look at your day. Even with the holiday season upon us and all of the rushing around it entails, I'll bet you can find pockets of time to dedicate to photography.

We all have time for the things we really care about. If you care about advancing your photography, you'll find the time to do it.
