Most of you, like me, probably take numerous photographs of your little ones. If you like taking photographs, it's easy to get carried away and can involve a conscious decision as to whether to be in the moment or to capture it as an image. At the end of last year, I read an interesting article that discussed how iPhone photos impact our experience and memories. As someone who takes a lot of photos on my iPhone of my two children, it resonated with me and I could relate to a lot of what the author said.
"Sorting through the glut of images, I notice that the ones that seem valuable change with time. What seems like the best shot of the group a day later is often different than what seems most beautiful, or moving, a year or more later. Perusing these images you become a detective looking for patterns that you did not know to look for at the time."
Speaking of holidays and as summer is getting a little less distant on the horizon, I'll leave you with a link to three tips for taking photos outdoors, dealing with light and bright sunlight (scroll down to end of the post for the tips).
What are your photo-taking habits? Do you take photos of some kind every day or mostly just on holidays and special occasions?
