We all know photography is cool. If it wasn’t nobody would hire our photo booths for their parties.
But you don’t have to hire one of our photo booths to get in on the photography action. There’s a 99.9% chance you have a camera on your smartphone. Maybe you even take it really seriously and bought an expensive and flashy SLR.
Here are the best reasons why you should get into photography.
Tell your story
Everything you do and see is part of your life story. Photography is a great way of capturing this story and then showing other people.
Appreciate good photos more
Whatever the art form, whether it be writing, music, or photography, taking part yourself, creating your own art, makes you appreciate other art because you know exactly what it takes to create good art.
Do it whenever you want
Cameras are portable, especially if you use your smartphone. That means you can do it without any forward planning. You could just be walking down the street and get the itch to take a photo; just take your camera out of your pocket and you are good to go.
Being creative has lots of benefits. It adds something to the world. It gives you energy. It makes you feel alive. People appreciate and admire you more. Photography lets you be creative with little training.
There is emotion everywhere, but it isn’t just limited to people. Even inanimate objects can show emotion with a perfectly composed photo.
If a photo can show emotion it means looking at a good photo can make you feel emotion. Even the act of taking photos can make you feel the emotions you wish the photos to convey.
Travelling is an amazing opportunity to see new things and meet new people. What better way to make your travel memories last forever than by taking photos of your experiences? And then you can use the photos to share your experience with friends and family.
One of the best things about photos is that they last. Photos can be a way to share your experiences and memories with your kids and grandkids, and their grandkids, and their grandkids, etc.
Communicate with the world, no matter what language you speak
Images can break all language barriers so photography is a great way of communicating with the world because everyone understands a beautiful photo no matter what language they speak.
