Why you should always have your camera with you

If I could only give a single piece of photography related advise, I'd always say: take your camera with you everywhere. Keep reading to find out why.

Capturing memories is so important. You probably take your camera with you to things you already know you'll want to remember - weddings, birthdays etc. But it is, in my opinion, even more important to take your camera with you to the casual things; to the coffee shop, to the day out to the beach. I am a big believer that it's the small things in life that count the most. 
Candid Talks 

In my experience, my favourite photographs are always the ones that are candids. I.e, not posed or set up, very informal. So I always take my camera with me so that I'm always ready to capture candid moments. 
It's all very well having your friend posing to take photos of (or for them to take photos of you posing), but I think it really shines through when a photograph is candid and authentic. For me, when I scroll through my Flickr steam or Instagram, as good as it looks when you have a colour scheme or a theme, I do prefer it when my photographs are totally authentic and natural.

  1. I find it tricky with blogging but I do love authentic photos as well, especially the candid type you take when you're overseas on trips especially.

  3. Unfortunately, I don't have a camera, but my phone is always charged and ready to capture some great moments. I totally agree, I just went to a town I've been million times before and took a million photos. :)
    following you on instagram and loving it :)

  4. I have a lovely camera and would love to be able to have it with me more. Space limits me though and I have so many things with me already that I haven't priorised it. Beautiful pictures x

  5. I would love to get a smaller camera to take around with me so I could capture more of life :) it's so lovely to capture authentic photos of those you love, friends laughing genuinely is always a winner for me! Em xx
