Announcements: March 10th – March 17th


Week of March 10th – March 17th

Did You Know?

You’ve heard it before: “A picture is worth a thousand words.”

From the initial invention to present day, cameras have evolved from large, bulky pieces of equipment that had to be perfectly steady- to the sleek, motion capturing, high-definition machines we have today. From the well-known brands of Nikon and Canon to camera phones and the tiny GoPro, cameras have evolved to capture anything and everything. Now they can go underwater and into space, they can be still or in motion. Hobbyists and professionals alike will go out to capture life in motion, distant places, and the reality of things close to home. Photographs themselves are used universally for a wide range of things, such as aesthetics, evidence, studies, art, journalism, marketing, advertising, etc.
So why participate in it as a hobby? Well, where do we begin?

Photography is an art form and the skills you develop are both creative and technical. The photographer gains a variety of mental health benefits such as: reducing cortisol levels, boosts self-esteem and confidence, builds up the practice of mindfulness and focus, it forces you to move, to get out into the world, connects you to your community, and allows you to express yourself. Being a photographer pushes you to discover the beauty in the world around you, allows you to document the things you find important, and grants immortality to your subjects. You get to tell your story through the photos you share.
