21. CAN MAKE OTHER PEOPLE THINK

With your images, you can also make people stop and think. Just a glance at a powerful image can stop people in their tracks. Some images can change the way you view the world for the rest of your life. Strong stuff.

22. CAPTURE THE ESSENCE OF A PERSON

A photo can capture the essence of a person, sometimes in just one frame. This is the goal of master portrait photographers everywhere and an enormous challenge. But when it is achieved, it’s an incredible thing. Sometimes it takes a series of photos to express the nuances of that person, but either way, photography has a way of showing those subtleties that can be hard to describe in words.

23. REMEMBER SOMEONE WHO HAS PASSED AWAY

After someone has passed, photos of them become treasured items. Without getting too morbid, everyone will die, and photos are potentially the best way to preserve the image and spirit of a person.

24. LEARN MORE ABOUT YOURSELF

Photography involves a lot of introspection over the course of a career. The deeper you get, the more you realise that it’s all about what you are interested in, how you feel about it, and what you want to say to the people who view your work. As you shoot, you learn more about yourself, what you value, and how you see the world.

25. PRESERVE THE BIG MOMENTS

Life is filled with “big moments”. Births, graduations, weddings, first steps—these are all moments that should be documented for family history. And a lot of the big moments aren’t times when you’d hire a professional photographer. Learning more about photography prepares you to capture those big moments for yourself.

26. ENJOY PHOTOS AND MEMORIES WITH LOVED ONES

Imagine you’re sitting on a big box of photos with friends and family. There would be a lot of talking, laughs, stories, jokes, and maybe even a tear or two. It’s an amazing way to connect.

27. ENJOY THE WORK OF OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS

History is filled with incredible photographers. The more you learn about photography, the more you appreciate their work. What makes Annie Leibovitz’s work so great? Why is Ansel Adams such a big name? Learning more gives more enjoyment.

28. SHOOT ANYTIME, ANYWHERE

Photography is so accessible that you can shoot at any moment. You might not always be able to pull out a canvas and some oils to paint with, or grab a guitar and start to play if a creative urge strikes you, but a camera is so small and portable that you can shoot anytime, anywhere.

29. CONNECT

Photographing someone is an intimate experience. You connect with people in a completely unique way with a camera in hand and your full attention on them. It’s easier to talk, easier to just look at them—seriously, it’s cool. It’s especially wonderful when you photograph someone you love.

30. CAPTURE A FEELING, NOT JUST AN APPEARANCE

Photographs can show more than just how something looked. They can capture how something felt. Especially if the photographer felt it themselves.
