Why Is Photography A Great Hobby?

Without photography, all our books and magazines will be so dull. Without photography, we won’t be able to understand the geography and culture of other countries and many other things. Photography is very important and powerful. As is always said, ‘A picture speaks a thousand words.’ So why not make photography your hobby as I think it’s a very fun and exciting hobby? Most of the time I only use a point-and-shoot digital camera because it is so small and convenient and doesn’t attract children’s attention.

I have 7 good reasons reasons to say so:

  1. You can take photos anywhere and everywhere you go.
    All you need is a digital camera. You can take as many as you like, select and edit before printing them. You may even choose not to print them. You can pour a lot of creativity into that.
  2. A picture speaks a thousand words.
    It’s always easier, more interesting and more effective to show people the photos than to go into great length to explain.
  3. Photos create good topics for conversations.
    It is very easy to start a conversation from just one picture. It helps communication and builds relationships.
  4. Photography is unique according to your personality and style.
    Different people are attracted to different things and different style. It makes their photos very unique.
  5. Photography doesn’t cost a lot.
    All you need is a camera to start off with. You don’t have to buy a highly professional, costly camera with all its many functions when you don’t even know how to use them. Just be happy with a simple one. As your photography skill improves, you can always buy a better one.
  6. You can make money out of your photos.
    There are a lot of avenues for you to sell your photos - shops, online, magazines, businesses etc. How cool is it to earn money from your hobby.
  7. You will do your family or friends proud.
    By being a good photographer, you’ll definitely be greatly appreciated especially during weddings, birthdays and parties. Your greatest excitement is to take photos of your own children from birth and all through the times as they grow up.

I am still learning to improve my photography skills.  Photography is just one of my latest dream. It’s always so wonderful to dream and see my dream come true. I learn by looking at great photos to get inspirations. I’ll keep learning and keep smiling. A few of my photos to share here.
