Documenting the stories you love is pure joy. Same here!
But if you're honest, lately, does it feel more like this:
You go from the euphoric state of connection with a meaningful story that LIGHTS YOU THE EFF UP to immediately criticizing how well you recorded it...
"does this elicit emotion? tell a story? is this relatable? i love this & wanna share it, but is this documentary enough to post in this group? am i ever gonna nail a complex composition?! UGH, this could've been better!"
Yeah? You're not alone (not even close!). My inbox has been overflowing with people dreaming of a safe space for the heart of documenting again: SEEING THE STORIES.
A space that cultivates the depth in how you see & how you use documenting, not how you shoot.
That space is being built right now.

Documenting (which goes beyond photography) is a potent medicine for change, loss, daily struggles, limiting beliefs, and more. It's a vehicle to richer connection + nourishment.
I recently closed my group of 7,500+ photographers, because the "get better, do more, follow these rules, how do I convince clients" noise overpowered the spirit of documenting.
Someone NOT having their face buried in a device or obsessed with the to-do's for tomorrow who slows down long enough to connect with something they value is a BIG FREAKIN' DEAL worth celebrating.
This community will honor the magic not measured by "how well" we record. Sound good? Great!
