I haven't been shooting as much lately only because my passion for training is way greater than my passion for photography. If I am going to be in the gym I'm going to be training and focusing on the techniques which does not allow me to focus on photography. I know some people think, "how much effort does it take to shoot photos?" I challenge you to look around and count how many competition or training photos you see with body parts out of the frame (usually a foot in Jiu Jitsu), blurred body parts from improper shutter speed, or how many people completely lose the rule of thirds. Either way I usually have to choose to do one or the other and I can always go out and shoot landscapes so Jiu Jitsu wins.
So my question is, what are some hobbies you do when you can't train or workout? Most people think the Jiu Jitsu lifestyle is surfing, Jiu Jitsu, working out, and eating healthy (of course family) but I know that there are more hobbies out there. I'm interested in your comments. Post below
