If you ask a photographer for the benefits of photography he may count you up to hundreds maybe even more.
Photography has so many positive effects on people’s life.
Here are 5 benefits of being a photographer or choosing to capture photos
1. Manage your life with photography
The most interesting thing about photography is you can capture the moment which you want to hold on, and that moment will live forever with you. When I go off the track from my life, I went through my childhood pictures, my parents, my younger brother, my relatives and those function I had attended in my life, in a magical way that gives a smile on my face. I feel the positive vibe, the fuel that I recurred the most.
“You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” ― Ansel Adams
2. Photography works as a stress relief
Stress and Camera are so relevant to each other, even the word stress contain six letters and the camera too.
The basic thing to relief stress is to maintain an environment that can reduce stress, who doesn’t know nature can heal that very well, and the interesting fact is that our well-known photographers shall be found in the forest most the time.
Stress relief also works when you maintain a humor in your life, and the camera can do that very well.
Although I came across with so many talented peoples those who have a very good hand on the ground of humor with the camera.
3. Photography as career
Ansel Adams a well-known photographer born on 1902 and died on 1984 shall always remain as an inspiration to the new generation of photographers.
Ansel Adams broke his nose in the San Francisco earth quick of 1906 when an aftershock threw him into a garden wall; Adams was a hyperactive and sickly child with few friends, dismissed from several schools for bad behavior. He was educated by privet tutors and members of his family from the age of 12, irrespective of all Adam became the best known photographer of all time, as Adams said, “We must remember that a photograph can hold just as much as we put into it, and no one has ever approached the full possibilities of the medium.”
4. Seeing things in a different way
You can relate this to writing also, Photography lets you see the world in a different way. Most the time we don’t see the small things that are part of our life. Like a playful child, wild life’s, beautiful flowers. But photography gives us a chance to watch our life in a different direction, in a different way. As Marc Riboud said, “Taking pictures is serving life, intensely every hundred of a second.”
5. Photography as spirituality:
By starting seeing things in-depth you chose to learn, and when you chose to learn you become spiritually uplifted, photography helps you to see things closely, photography helps us to see the ordinary as extraordinary. Photography helps us to see the positive side of the story rather than the negative side. Photography captures the happiness of our life into a frame.
A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know. – Diane Arbus
