Photography has come a long way in its relatively short history. In almost 200 years, the camera developed from a plain box that took blurry photos to the high-tech mini computers found in today’s DSLR’s and smartphones.
There is no doubt that today’s technologies have facilitated the photography process from taking photos to editing and developing. Professional photographers are saving hours of the time the old photographers used to spend to deliver a bunch of nice memories to their clients or family.
Therefore, smartphones we all have in our pocket, allow us to take thousands of photos that we never actually look at any of them.
“Instead of snapping and cherishing a precious handful of photos, people are now amassing troves of digital images that they may never lay eyes on ever again”, said Martin Zhang.
There is certainly some truth in this. Thousands of photos that are easy to store in your gallery or on your computer are maybe gone forgotten or may be lost forever due to technical issues.
In spite that modern conveniences make it easier to capture your daily activities and organize them, but only a few selected photos that summarize a certain event will be worth sharing with family and friends on social media. And most of all printed and presented in a nice album; kept for the future to see it and cherish those precious moments.
Good memories deserve to live forever and that’s our moto.
