    This year, it's estimated that people around the world will take over one trillion photographs. When you've always got a smartphone camera in hand and an unlimited amount of photos at your fingertips, what gives a photo meaning? On this episode of Now or Never, we are hearing from professional photographers and regular joes who are capturing real, meaningful moments through pictures. Each has a story to tell that will nudge you to change the way you capture images. A prairie photographer takes portraits of babies who've passed away. A woman carves out a niche using squirrels for muses. A cancer survivor bypasses wigs for her bald head, using homemade dioramas instead. Plus, you'll get insight into what makes people "click", and meet some unexpected shutterbugs.
