Why do people take photos?
People take photos to try to keep their memories still. They want to be able to re-see the scene they like and they want to be able to see it again later or to share the same view with other people. When you look at a photo you took from a holiday traveling, you would be reminded of what you have seen there. When you look at a photo taken when you graduate, you would be reminded of all the good days as a student. So yeah, I think people take photos to remind themselves of those moments.
What do people use to take photos these days, cameras or phones?
I think in these days more people would prefer using phones more. There are still some people would use cameras because cameras would produce photos of better quality. But for most people, phones are easier to carry around. To them, ifs more important that they are not carrying an extra equipment just for shooting photos, and they can have it with them everywhere they go. When they see something that they want to capture in photos, they can get it in hand quick and handy.
Is it difficult for people to learn how to take good photos?
I actually think it is a little bit difficult. Usually people just take pictures as to take notes on what they have seen. And they don’t really care about the quality or how good it is. Taking good photos would require the person to actually think about art and beauty a little bit. You need to know how the angel and the color of the lighting can change the visual effect of a photo, and how to place things in your frame in the right position. You really need to think about it in order to take a good photo.
How do people keep their photos?
In the old days, people would print the photos out and keep them in actual albums. That generation of people would really care about which photo is better, because they cannot print out everything and put everything on the shelf. But nowadays a lot of young people prefer storing the photos in phones. It’s easier and you can always use cloud storage if the phone storage is not enough. So people now don’t usually sort through their photos, they just store everything.
