What is a metaphor or simile that describes a big difference?

My essay is about my passion in videography so something related to cameras or film would be good. I'm having a hard time coming up with something.

I'm not sure if you'll be able to use any of these, but you can mold and mix them as you see fit! Here are some metaphors that I personally enjoy:

Camera Similes:

"The change was as quick as a camera shutter. Click, Flash, and there I was. No time to get my bearings or make sure my smile was authentic enough."

Tidal Wave Metaphors

"Little did I know, the little boat that was my life would soon be capsized by a violent torrent."

Piscatology Metaphors

"...and before I knew it, I was a vulnerable clownfish without an anemone."

Deer Metaphors

"I was a fawn on the highway, immobilized & blinded by an onslaught of ways the world around me could end."

Salmon Metaphors

"It was the kind of situation where swimming upstream was ordinary, almost expected. But I knew that an orthodox approach was the way to go."

Hope this helps!
