Celebrate and Share Your Photos on World Photography Day!

Yes today, August 19th,  is World Photography Day! What a wonderful way to celebrate the day by going out Camera Walking! World Photography Day was started in 2009 by Korske Ara, a photographer from Australia, who believes “that photography has the power to tell stories, inspire generations and initiate change in the world.” Couldn’t agree more!

There are many ways to celebrate World Photography Day. First, go out Camera Walking.  Use your camera or smartphone and capture some great shots.

Second, share your photos.    From August 19th to the 26th, www.worldphotoday.org will have an open gallery for photographers from around the world to share photos. All you have to do is register (it’s free) and then upload your favorite photo!

Also take advantage of  Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+, as well as Flickr, Picasa, and SmugMug, among others, to share your photos. A key benefit of Camera Walking, other than the great exercise you get, is taking photos that you can share with the world.

In addition to sharing online, you can make a book, print your photo on canvas or get it framed to give as gifts to your family and friends. You will be giving a part of yourself, your view of the world, and that will help you feel great about getting out for more walks.

Great photos can come from your walk around the neighborhood.
