Photography is something that I absolutely adore, in case you couldn’t tell by the title. It’s something I have gotten into properly over the last couple of years, stemming really from GCSE art where I focused on photography for the exam project. However, it has been something that I’ve had a love for ever since I was little.
When I was small, I did own a little camera and it wasn’t great yet I used it as much as possible. I took pictures of my old cat, of my grandparents old dog and of random things around the house and flowers in my grandparents garden. When I got a smartphone for the first time in I think 2011, that was great. Ever since then, I’ve had iPhones and I have loved the cameras on them, and I have taken pictures on them a lot, some of my favourite photos I’ve ever taken have been from my current iPhone (6S) and previous phones. More recently however I got the Panasonic Lumix G1, and although, yes it is an old camera, I absolutely love it. I have taken it on so many days out and taken it to take photos of my cats and other pets in my family.
But why do I love photography so much? Well, that is because it’s just amazing in general. You can record these memories of things, such as with days out or with pets and you have them forever. You can print them and have physical copies (I occasionally print out photos with my polaroid zip) or you can keep them on your phone or computer or memory stick forever. You can look at things such as flowers or the sky and just capture this beautiful moment and capture how beautiful certain things in nature are, or even how beautiful man-made things like architecture are. It’s a way of making the world seem a little bit more beautiful and a way of capturing memories and being able to keep them forever. It’s truly one of the best things.
If you’re into photography, please comment why you love it and thank you guys for reading 🙂
