As someone who has been doing adventure photography for a few years now, one of the most significant trends I’ve seen is the increasing external pressure to document. Everything. Everywhere.
“You really need to start doing video.”
“Why aren’t you on (insert social media platform here)?”
“You should really do some more behind-the-scenes.”
“With this new device, you can update from way out in the backcountry.”
I appreciate it when an audience shows interest in whatever goes into the images, and the lifestyle that surrounds it. I can also appreciate the desire to see things documented; that’s what got me into photography in the first place.
So, why am I not doing all those things I could be doing?
