Using Photography to Make Connections

1-IMG_9699As humans we crave connection, photography and social media are a marriage made in heaven for connecting people with a common bond though photographs

Photography is providing the catalyst for face to face connections with Instagram meets, photo walks, workshops and a variety of other activities.

The photograph is one of the most important inventions never, when it comes to human relationships we keep images of loved ones and the things we care about and the things that are important to us.

A simple photograph can do many things, record a point in time, record a place, record a feeling or event, its tells the story like no other possession you keep .

You can be the receiver of the photograph, with yourself making a connection with the image; the creator may skillfully craft elements into the image to promote the connection, and the best part for the photographer you can be both the receiver and the creator.

The Singer/Musician Ed Sheeran song Photograph has great line “We keep this love in a photograph, We made these memories for ourselves,  Where our eyes are never closing, Hearts are never broken, Times forever frozen still”

So pick up your camera and start making connections, sharing the things you love and the things that are important to you.

So until we connect again happy memories
