I am a photographer and I take a lot of pictures with my cameras. I only use my phone for quick shots of something that I know will not be printed.
I know a lot of people who use their phones for pictures all the time and this bothers me. No one prints from a phone picture so your memories are on your phone. They share them on facebook and that is the end of it. Those pictures will never make it to a photo album they will never be seen again.
Why because someone never bothered picking up a camera to document their memories properly. We have so many family members who do not take the time to get out a real camera.
I love looking back at old pictures from when I was a kid. If there was no one using a camera, this would not be possible. Someone took the time to take some pictures and have them printed and placed them in an album.Those pictures can be shared and passed down for many generations.
Take out your camera and truly document your life, your memories, your children’s lives and your grandchildren. Then have some prints made for a photo album. That way 50 years from now your great grandchildren will have memories of you and your family. They can sit back and laugh about how people were dressed and how the houses look so old fashion. It is worth taking the time to do this.
Phones get outdated, computers crash, but real prints are always there representing the past and the people who lived it.
There is an older song by Nickelback that is called “Photograph” listen to the words and you can understand where I am coming from. It is important to document all your memories properly.
