Celebrating World Photography Day on August 19
August 18, 2021
Photography is all about sharing a snippet of life--from the most mundane to the most important event, person, object--you name it, and the list goes on. While it is said too many times before, your memory is the best photography equipment you can own. And the best moments can only be captured by your memory. But sometimes, your memories can fail you. You may tend to forget some details, and that is where tangible photography equipment comes in. The great invention of cameras has helped us produce visuals that shape our lives and the world. And on August 19, we celebrate World Photography Day. The event originated from the creation of the photographic process, Daguerreotype, invented by Frenchmen Louis Daguerre and Nicephore Niepce in 1837. Two years later, on August 19, the French government purchased the patent and announced the invention as a gift free to the world. The technology has been the foundation of developments in the photographic industry. And as they say, the rest is history. For photographers out there, if you have been thinking long and hard if it is the right time to set up your own photography studio, then the upcoming World Photography Day is the universe’s way of telling you to do it!
