6. Photography keeps the body in motion.
Aside from exercising the brain, photography also makes the body move and burn calories. A photographer typically walks around to look for a good subject or a good angle.
Some angles also demand physical strength in order to get a great shot. Lots of photographers even climb trees or bend over just to get closer to the subject.
7. Photography gets you engaged with things you love.
A photographer is typically drawn to things that are interesting to him or her. This makes it easier for a person to focus and connect with a subject that is meaningful. It doubles the fun of taking interesting photos since it becomes rewarding when nice photos are captured.
8. Photos uplift the mood.
There’s a study that’s titled The Connection Between Art, Healing, and Public Health: A Review of Current Literature, that supports the idea that art helps the body to reduce stress hormones.
As a form of art, photography relaxes someone and becomes a good motivating factor to see the world in a positive light.
9. Photography makes you creative.
Since photography is an art form, it makes the brain active in order to process creative thoughts. Once the body is in motion, the brain encourages it to take photos that will translate the creative thoughts into tangible representations which, in this case, are the photos.
10. Photography shows different perspectives.
The uncertainty caused by challenging times is what makes many people feel unmotivated with their lives.
Photography is a way to escape dark thoughts by motivating the person to look at life from a different perspective.
Instead of brooding indoors, taking photos of anything worth interesting can let a person enjoy the moment and look forward to the next photo session.
It gives a person a reason to look forward to the future instead of dreading the uncertainties.
