It’s not my first time blogging about the importance of photographs nor will it be the last. What I want to share today is the feeling of nostalgia that an old photograph provides. The type of camera used or smartphone, whether professionally taken or not, a picture says a thousand words. A thousand words squeezed into one photo can evoke big emotions!
I came across this article about a photographer (Zed Nelson) who followed and photographed a family for the past 22 years. He used the same lighting technique, backdrop and similar poses throughout the years. The result. Incredible. I was touched by the simplicity of the growing family and how it was documented.
So whether you’re a professional photographer or not, a DSLR shooter or smartphone shooter, please take pictures. A lot of it because 5 years from now (or earlier) you’ll look back and grasp the power of photographs.
