Long before Snapchat selfie filters, my kids and I played with my Mac’s Photo Booth.
It never really produced high-quality images I’d consider printing. I mostly used it as a means of entertaining them.
Sometimes to show them off when nobody was around to take a picture of the two of us.
The dog, too.
Until recently, I knew these were there, but I didn’t realize what gems they were. What was once just quick, grainy snapshots of us, mostly looking sloppy – not easy for an accomplished photographer to appreciate- is something different altogether now.
There I am. In the moment. In the picture.
And in the videos, too…
The best camera is the one you have, and the one you will use. Get in the picture, parents. Use what you’ve got. You won’t regret it.
