Find new ways to use your technology including your camera! Once upon a time, cameras were a big investment. In order to take photos one needed a camera film, and either a darkroom or a lot of money to pay for photos. As technology has advanced, cameras became a commodity item and more popular among larger masses of people. Today, digital cameras make it possible for people to take thousands of photos without having to pay for darkrooms and professional processing.
As a young girl, I worked at a photo processing store. The store sold different kinds of film and provided photo processing services. Most customers took photos that were okay. However, once in a while a person took a whole roll of shaky photos, dark photos or otherwise unusable photos. There was nothing worse than asking someone to pay for a roll of terrible photos. With digital cameras, we can avoid a lot of those problems because you know immediately if the photos are no good and can delete them and start again.
Some things change and some things remain the same.
Cameras are still used for traditional photography – portraits, capturing sunsets, animals at the zoo, and school plays. However, there are a lot of other uses for digital cameras that have become so popular. Here are a few interesting ways I have used my digital cameras over the past few weeks:
- monitored the progress of the children cleaning their rooms
- kept track of how an injury is healing
- price shopped items at different stores
- copied a decorating idea I saw in a store
- as a story starter for my children to practice writing
Most of these photos were deleted in a few hours and that was a good thing. After all, do you really want to save all ten of the photos from the children telling you they cleaned their room? Digital camera technology makes it possible to use a camera like scratch paper. Take a photo, use it, trash it and use the camera later to take more photos. Your camera doesn’t have to be a special occasion only device. Take it out of the case and let it run free.
I am a person who really likes my electronic bullet journal. At the same time, I do enjoy writing certain things down. With my camera, I can do both and combine the information. I use the Creating Confidence Planner that I created. When I write things down using my smart erasable notebooks, I simply take a photo of the written pages and insert them into my electronic planner. Now I have the best of both worlds in one place!
It is terrific to find new ways to use your technology including your camera. What is the most interesting thing you have done with your camera?
