Now a question can arise to your mind. What are the essentials of take photo?

 

Can you imagine still now, there are many people in this world who believes that photo shoot is a waste of time and money.

They are totally wrong. There are many important reasons for photography.

The key reasons of taking photos are:

  • Capturing Memories
  • Capturing Moments
  • Telling Stories
  • Communicating with Others
  • Improving Photography Skills

Capturing Memories:
Is there any other better thing then photography that can capture your memories? I believe your answer should “no”. Photography has the power that can remember your memories and make you nostalgic.  Now-a-days people are super busy and they don’t have enough time to meet their family and friends often. But one of your photos can give you the pleasure of your past life.

When you open your photo gallery and go through the album your memories become live for a moment.  I’m sure you should say “I remember this!” And it’s not a matter whether the photos taken by a professional photographer or not. Photos can do the job by capturing your important memories.

Capturing Moments:
Moments are happening continuously. Everyday many important things are happening around us.  We travelling, dating, playing on the field, attending party and outing with our kids all of these have some important moments. Photograph freezes these moments so we can capture the time to get pleasure from them.

Telling Stories:
Photo can speak and create a great story. Have you ever looked a photo that just captured, which make you stop and see? Many times, the theme of a photograph is so significant; it does not a matter if it has taken by an amateur or skilled photographer. The stories of these photos may have the quality to overshadow several technical capacity of a photographer. These stories may also contain sadness, happiness or any other sensational emotions. For example you can think of the photos of Olympic gold medalists at that time of the victory or a tragic accident or natural disasters as well as war. Moreover, the photos of your personal event such as wedding can produce a significant story for ever.

Communicating With Others:
You have heard an old proverb, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” It’s not wrong. Photographers are able to show themselves by their photography. When somebody looks at on your photos, they can able to see something just your way. Photograph can communicate the ideas in a very imaginative, creative, visual and artistic way.

Improving Photography Skills:
I’m confident that you can agree with many of the above things I’ve tried to explain about the importance of photography. I also personally believe many photographers involved in photography to improve their creativity as well as ability with their camera. There is far difference between an experienced photographer and an amateur. If you have enough time you can make a comparison between your first time taken and after thousands. Many times a photo can be disappointing with its outcome? It can be frustrating sometimes. But you should keep patience and practice more and more.

You have to continue to get better. Don’t give up, as the old proverb goes, “practice makes a man perfect.” You may shoot 100 and get 1 absolutely amazing. Just think about that one which will drive you to go forward.

So, go out with your camera capture some of your memories and moments are happening around you! Try to tell stories with your camera! Gradually develop the quality! Most importantly, share the photos with others since your photography can not only inspire you, but also it can inspire others.
