Why Photography Matters in Our Life


We keep shooting all the time, especially when the mobile begin to possess the powerful function of digital camera. Interesting events, beautiful scenery can easily attract our attention. And we will take out mobile phones or digital camera to shoot them involuntarily. But, have you ever thought about the reason why photography is so important in your life?

Of course, photography distils our most precious moments into images. Photographs are our personal story, a timeline of our lives filled with faces and places that we love. They are our story, which we can share with others.

Besides, photographs are part of our legacy. They freeze moments of our lives which pass unremarkably and which seem to have little importance to us at the time. They can be small pieces of a jigsaw that complete the larger picture of our lives.

Third, photography shapes us into artists. It allows us to express ourselves through an art form.

Fourth, every kind of human emotion can find a place in photography. Photography is a special language. It allows us to tell our story and show others our framing of the world around us.

Last but not least, photography has the power to move us. It can grab our attention and speak directly to our emotions.
