Dancing Poet Creative Media is launching a FREE Instagram course on April 1st. Be sure to sign up for their newsletter to get it. Today’s post has showed up over at The Realm.
Don’t you just love that we have the opportunity to capture life and memories through pictures? Do you ever look back at your childhood photos? Or even at your parent’s childhood pictures?
I sure know I do. I love looking through them. One time I was sitting in my parent’s family library where a ton of our books are. There was this little wooden photo chest. I cracked it open to find dozens of pictures. They were black and white, sepia, and some were colored. Some were of my parents when they were younger, of me and my siblings, or even brittle photographs of my grandparents and great-grandparents.
Photos are just as important today as they were back then, except I think they were kept in a physical copy back then more than they are today. But who doesn’t love physical copies of photographs? I think we need to be printing our photos more so that we have a storehouse of memories that isn’t stored on technology.
4 Reasons You Should Capture
Life Through The Lens
2. Sense of time & place
There are many things that will give you a sense of time and place. Here are some things to think about when you are taking photos. You want your kids to know what things were like when they were growing up, but a photographer barely considers looking for these kinds of things. The things that might be different in 20 years.
Cars & Equipment –
3. The small things
Like an excited child and the use of his or her imagination.
You probably understand what I mean about capturing all the small things. It’s tough to describe it all in words when you have the images at your fingertips. And hey, a picture is worth a thousand words.
In December, I went to South Africa. Totally loved it. Definitely recommend you go there someday! I find it super important to take pictures everywhere, while traveling.
Instagram is an amazing way to inspire yourself to take more pictures for your sake, your kid’s sakes, and also for fun. Capture it all. You will always enjoy looking back at them. You’ll be grateful you did take them!
- Pick at least 10-20 pictures a month.
- Edit them.
- Have them printed.
- Start your own photo chest.
