There was a time when my world revolved around photography. I would bring a digital SLR everywhere I went, framing images and capturing moments both mundane and memorable. Eventually, I relied on smartphones more and more because bringing a camera (whether a DSLR or a simple point-and-shoot) felt too bulky and became unnecessary; why bring one when you couldn't upload your pictures right away, unlike with a smartphone? With this, I also became lazy, not caring to frame my shots the way I used to and relying on filters just to make my photos look better. Nowadays, though, I've rediscovered the power of using a real (non-smartphone) camera, especially for travel and sports photography, and found a way for it to happily co-exist with smartphone photography. They serve different purposes, allow me to capture even more moments in different ways, and share them with others. To shutterbugs everywhere, here's to celebrating World Photography Day!
