From the Ted Talk by Erin Sullivan: Does photographing a moment steal the experience from you?

Unscramble the Blue Letters

As a photographer, I've really had to check myself on this. When does it help me to have my cerama out, and when do I just need to put it away? On a trip to Alaska, I had the opportunity to photograph Alaskan brown bears. I was on a boat with four other photographers, and we were all having our mndis blown at the same time in such close proximity to these animals. It's an emotional experience. Being eye to eye with these beras gave me a feeling of connection that tdrcaesnns words, and having my camera with me in this case enhanced that. We were all cartenig independently but also all completely in the moment, both with nature and with each other. I so clearly remember capturing the water drpeolts and the motion as the bears swam and the cute cubs following their mothers. That group and I will have that experience together and these iamegs to look back on time and time again, and photography is what enabled us to sarhe this in the first place.

Original Text

As a photographer, I've really had to check myself on this. When does it help me to have my camera out, and when do I just need to put it away? On a trip to Alaska, I had the opportunity to photograph Alaskan brown bears. I was on a boat with four other photographers, and we were all having our minds blown at the same time in such close proximity to these animals. It's an emotional experience. Being eye to eye with these bears gave me a feeling of connection that transcends words, and having my camera with me in this case enhanced that. We were all creating independently but also all completely in the moment, both with nature and with each other. I so clearly remember capturing the water droplets and the motion as the bears swam and the cute cubs following their mothers. That group and I will have that experience together and these images to look back on time and time again, and photography is what enabled us to share this in the first place.
