Photo by @nunoserrao for #CapturePlay || For me, the act of playing has always been intrinsically linked to learning. More knowledge equals more fun. Play is a way of getting there. One who is self-taught walks the path, and once he does, logic beats memory.
Photo by @Michael_angelo_77 for #CapturePlay || In photography, play means experimenting and discovering. For this photo I was experimenting with fast shutter speeds. It was a warm summer afternoon and our kids were having fun with the garden hose. The sun had just fallen behind a tree and the water spray gave a magical effect with the natural backlight of the late afternoon. 😊
Photo by @lpmediahouse for #CapturePlay || “Play” for me is doing something that helps me switch off from the real world and truly be in the moment. This photo represents a summer of play on Lake Geneva wakeboarding, skiing and sharing and capturing precious moments with friends. Anytime I’m behind the lens, I’m playing and anytime I’m editing, I’m playing.
Photo by @leles_gustavo for #CapturePlay || I've always loved watching other people play sports. I love how sports can change people, even if only for a few hours. People are overwhelmed by so many feelings—love, union, happiness, peace, sometimes even anger and sadness and that's ok, because life is like that, and so is play. It’s about living life and feeling it at its best and worst.
I was never good at playing sports, but I'm learning how to play with a camera and how to make people feel what I feel through sports.
Photo by @edgilardon for #CapturePlay || To me, play means connecting, building relationships and growing while having fun and staying in the moment.⠀
These Japanese Snow Monkeys certainly do all of that. They are having fun climbing and jumping into the pool while teaching their young how to interact with the rest of the community. It was beautiful to see.
Photo by @Apollo.dubs for #CapturePlay || Being in the San Francisco Bay Area, there’s plenty of talented photographers. Playing means being creative and taking photos you’ve seen before but putting your individual stamp on it. Letting your mind wander. The fun part is going outside and capturing how your mind plays through different possibilities.
