By Corey Hill:
Photography is special. We all love photography for different reasons. For memories, for experiences, and for the love of Nature and People. However, their seems to be a common thread that brings the community of photographers together that I think we all should appreciate.
Taking an image, freezing a moment, makes us feel how rich reality truly is and how amazing the present moment can be. Something we probably all need to do a little more of! Photography MAKES us look at the world differently, through a new “lens” (pun intended). We don’t just look for photographic opportunities, but we FEEL it as well. We take our time, see things we do not normally see in our hectic lives. We are in the “now” which enhances our creative side. Endorphins, Serotonin and Dopamine are released, our feel good chemicals! Humans have a wild imagination and a spectacular creative side. Photography makes us tap into that.
I LOVE photography for kids. It can be one of the most healthy activities for children , for all the reasons stated above.
For photos of people, its one thing to take a picture of a person but you make a portrait of Who They Are. From street photography to Landscape to Wildlife, Photography allows us to capture the world in unique and empowering ways. So….if you are not photographing currently, then get out there and shoot! Don’t have a camera or lens? No problem, Action Camera rents out various different cameras and lenses and allows you to experience The Magic of Photography!
