We all live life but how many of us are able to look back on our past? Since the invention of the camera, humans have been able to capture life moments in time on camera. With these handy little devices we document our journey through and share them with our own self, friends, family and others. Here are 3 solid reasons to photograph your life.
Reason #1: Taking Perspective
We live in a world where we can’t see ourselves from head to toe. Therefore with the use of a camera, it’s refreshing to see our full body. We can also take perspective and look at ourselves to evaluate our mental and emotional state through observation of our body language. All of this to give us a true feeling (even nostalgic).
Reason #2: Memories
Because photos can grab life’s moments, we can view our old photos and get a feeling about our past. It’s a great way to reflect and think about the things we’ve done, haven’t done yet and will do in the future. It can be a catalyst for positive change and therapeutic for those who miss old times.
Reason #3: Fun
Taking pictures of things we find cool is fun. Cars, trees, mountains, animals, people and more. It’s interesting to see things from our own perspective and others as well. It’s truly an art form.
So in conclusion those are 3 good reasons to photograph your life. It’s a great way to take perspective, look back on memories, and have fun too. Also if you’re interested in getting the best photography angles for portraits, we’re more than happy to help you here at Toy Camera Photography.
