So you already know that I’m a beach baby but another love of mine is photography. I LOVE taking photos and have since I was a little girl. I still have boxes of photos that I can’t part with even though they have been scanned onto the computer.
I think I’ve had some type of camera in my possession since I was about 8 years old. I remember the old instamatics, even the Polaroid that gave us an instant picture! They were so much fun.
When I got my first really nice camera, a Canon SLR, I learned everything I could and I took pictures of everything. My family even kidded about being careful around me because I would be snapping pictures. Back then, you took as many as you could, hoping that some of them would be keepers that would end up in your photo album.
With the advent of digital photography, everything changed for me. There was ALWAYS (and still is!) a camera with me. I took even more pictures of everything then back to computer to see what came out. What was really nice was to be able to load up the good ones, throw away the bad ones and it didn’t (and still doesn’t) cost you to develop them!
Now, I LOVE taking pictures with my iPhone X. With the addition of a few camera apps, learning how to take photos with the phone and finally learning how to edit (yes, I was late to educate myself about Photoshop), taking photos has become even easier than ever before. Having a device with me all the time that is convenient in size and takes some great pictures makes my photography habit even more fun!
So summertime is the perfect time for those photos. If you have a smartphone, make sure to learn how to use all the functions of your camera app. You’ll be glad you did when you can go back and recall the memories just by looking on your phone or computer.
