I used to be the one who never used her iPhone camera. I preferred the big camera, the one with all of the lenses. The bells and whistles. For the last little while, though, the iPhone has been my camera of choice. It’s small and easy to use and always, always with me.
But then. Then you see a little bee. And the iPhone just can’t capture it. You need to bring out the big camera with the macro lens. And you need to take 36 photos of the little bee just to get one that’s okay. Not great but pretty sharp and okay.
That’s why it’s worth it to have the big camera. That’s why it’s fun to be a photographer. Because you can capture the little bee and it reminds you to stop and look at the little things because they are the things that help you to see the bigger picture.
And the bigger picture? That’s what really matters. Really.
