Why We Enjoy Photography As A Hobby

An essay on photography as a hobby and artistic activity

With modern society, human kind has the opportunity to enjoy spare time. We are not anymore burdened with hunting and surviving, so that spare time needs to be spent somewhere. Some people are enjoying it just to make their time pass faster, while others have more refined and artistic approach. Photography is great because you can utilize both of those ways, and we will give you reasons why you should try it.

Create perfect memories

Let yourself go when taking photos and
you will create perfect memories without even knowing it.

“You don't take a photograph, you make it.”
--------------------
Ansel Adams

We must agree with these wise words when it comes to photography. Even the tiniest bit of effort qualifies the photo you just made as something extraordinary. Let us think about that for a while. When you did last time snapped one, and thought “I don’t care how it looks like.” Never, right? This comes due to the fact that people wish to keep perfect memories, and they are doing this without noticing, on a subconscious level.

Save a moment in time

It's all about "freezing" that moment and saving it forever for your personal enjoyment.

“A good snapshot keeps a moment from running away.”
--------------------
Eudora Welty

Speaking of memories, some people start making photos out of enjoyment, and it stays that way for as long as they are doing this. But, for someone, this feeling evolves into something personal and completely different. It becomes the ability to freeze time, and to tear a moment out of fabric of reality. We can freely call this magic. Not in a “Harry Potter” way, but that saved moment is truly magical, for it was unique, and will never return again. And you kept it. We can freely say that this is a breaking moment, for if you feel it, until then, it was hobby, from now on, it is an art.

Start simple

“For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.”
--------------------
Henri Cartier-Bresson

Of course, at the very beginning, you will need something to work with. It is best advised to start with something simple. Luckily, modern smartphones are equipped with high-quality cameras, and you would be surprised how good photos you can make with one of these. If you catch yourself photographing all the time, then perhaps it is the time to level up your equipment, and start with something more appropriate. And do not be discouraged. Many people will tell you that selfies and photos of food for Instagram are not art, but who knows, maybe you will work for some prestigious food magazine.

Share your photos

“There are always two people: the photographer and the viewer.”
--------------------
Ansel Adams

This quote is almost always true. Sometimes, the photographer is the viewer at the same time, but more often, there is a person we care about, and with whom we love to share our thoughts and feelings about making photos. In case that you are the viewer more often, you will be in a situation to help your artist, but you lack inspiration.

The best thing to do for a beginner photographer is to provide him with some sort of equipment. Most likely you do not knot know what are you looking for, nor where to find it. To set this right, handing out a gift card which can be used for shopping will be appreciated very much. In addition, this will lift you up from the level of simple observer, to someone who wishes for his/her photographer to progress.

To summarize all, it does not matter whether you know to set up proper lighting, or to time your exposure right, the only important thing is that you love what you are doing. Unyielding love and passion are the best motivators. All the rest is just tinkering with high technology.
