Photography for everyone
There are unlimited uses of a camera in your everyday life. There can be many reasons why we take photos: for some photography is a pleasurable hobby, others just want to record the places they see or people they meet for their own memories, or to show friends and family back home when traveling, or they may even want to publish photos online or work as a professional photographer.
