This latest post will take us deep down the Gateway into the Good Vibes of Photography.

Photography is visual storytelling and can leave you with a gallery of profound visual eye candy stylings for you to appreciate and reflect upon the most memorable, and sometimes just the simplest of experiences you have had and captured.

I also absolutely adore that I had a child and have been able to keep a visual diary of his growth and evolvement in the last seven years in which I have been supremely fortunate to have a hand in and witness his healthy and expanded development.

Tide and Time of Photography

The history and processes of photography are vast. Wikipedia has a very dialled in and interesting read on the history of photography. My knowledge is that of Nicéphore Niépce who was recorded as being the first to be able to dial in a photograph along with his comrade Louis Daguerre. They developed a process in which they were able to unveil to the world in 1839 a commercially viable photographic process.

I deem it a worthwhile pursuit to recognize and educate yourself on it if you can dig the vibe.

It’s a good vibe to educate yourself on anything, really. Knowledge is Empowering because being informed allows you to be discerning and confidant in your relationship to that which you know of.

This world is vast and there are so many interesting things to get interested in. Learning and exploring through photography can cultivate a connection to the world in a more present and observational manner.

photography yields presence

The history, evolvement and present state of the use of the medium of photography is a pretty good vibe to get into. It demonstrates expansion, growth, creativity, technological advancements and mindful pursuits leading to invention and providing us with visual archives of different periods.

Without such inquisitive and curious minds, photography would not exist.

Its evolvement and impact in terms of education and empowerment are universal and its impact a global reach.

The Benefits of taking Photographs

photography is a form of communication

Photography and learning about how an image is captured and the kinds of techniques and tools you can use to enhance or alter the image in which you are viewing is a very cool vibe and is resonant with a favourable way to explore imaginatively our perceptions of what we see.

The benefits of taking photographs are abundant.

We are all so beautifully individual and to see how we see someone and to see how someone sees the world around them is a connected experience and broadens our understanding of ourselves, as well as those whom we share our photographs. There are myriads of ways in which photography enhances and supports a good vibe.

Approached with conscious awareness, photography yields a mindful practice. lil guy photographerTaking a camera and purposefully recognizing and appreciating the natural world around you, the people that light you up, architecture that leaves an impression, a diverse environment or experience when traveling…whatever the subject – It puts you in the now and connects you to deeper connection and awareness of presence.

When any human is able to encompass a state of being in presence, there is no room for worrisome, ruminating thoughts or outward criticisms.

Photography is a great tool to harness and develop our imaginations.

My son is one of the most imaginative little creatures I have had the privilege to know and I try my best to harness that lego creation imaginationaspect of his being by engaging with him in imaginative play.

The time we spend dialing this in brings great joy, silliness and just all around good vibe fun.

Photography is a super cool way to enhance the right side cerebral stylings of your brain and harness creativity and imaginative thinking.

Whether it be the way the light catches a certain object and makes it appear as something else of your own imaginative musings, or even taking something seemingly ordinary and capturing it with your own imaginative eye to acknowledge that it is in fact, extraordinary.

My son likes to take a series of photographs of his latest Lego creations in different positions and at 7 is making stop motion animations of his Lego builds made all from his imagination.

The level of focus and present attention when I see the little dude in my life kill it with his creativity and dial in some sweet creations using a camera is a very cool thing to be present for.

Books and books have been written about the power of presence. An engaged participant dialing in some sweet photography harnesses a regulated state of presence.

This is a vibe which is an optimal space to be.

Photography educates and expands by being able to depict scenarios and landscapes and social realities across the globe. It can be a viable profession for those who are passionate for visual storytelling.

Insane Photographers Worldwide

Paul Nicklen’s Instagram is Off the Hook

paul nickel is off the hook

I learned of Paul Nicklen through my following National Geographic Travel ( there is another solid shout of longevity and good vibes that is the timeless distiller of knowledge and photographs that is National Geographic)

timeless national geographic

Paul Nicklen is a Canadian man who is accomplished in film, photography and marine biology and an advocate for the empowerment of our natural world and the creatures that inhabit it. He is aware, conscious, creative and basically being the kind of human that deserves and honourary shout out in the good vibes!

I do not know Paul Nicklen personally so I can not speak to his character directly, but the nature of the work he does and his investment and mastery into his crafts demonstrates to me that he is a man who is self actualized. This is the best thing that anyone can do for this world, in my humble opinion – to harness one’s own gifts in Mind and Heart and impact the globe in an empowering and inspirational manner.

Photography is a very cool pursuit, in whatever capacity you invest yourself into it, it yields some very good vibes.

If your idea of photography is an inordinate amount of selfies, then some self-analysis could be a good vibe too!

Photography is informative, creative, educational and FUN!

Enjoy it!

  1. Hey there,

    I love photography myself. Taking photos, seeing photos, browsing photos. Although I love technology and new advancements, I love old photos. Not for the photo per se, but for the context. The people, the locations, the fashion, the buildings. And, don’t forget that a family portrait photo back in the day was a big issue. Tha family had to wear their suits and dresses, and havd to make it with one shot. Love that!

      Thank you for your comment and have an awesome day ahead!

  2. Photography has become kind of like a hobby for me. I was not always the type of person that loved taking pictures but I have come to find out that it is a really nice and fun activity to capture a particular moment forever.

    I loved your idea of keeping a visual diary of your child. It is something I would definitely love to do as soon as I start having my children. It would be really fun as I capture their growth stages from childhood to adulthood. 

    1. Hi Jay!

      I am stoked to hear that you dig photography as a hobby and your comment about capturing a moment forever really resonated with me.  To see the development of my child has been truly mind blowing and it is a fun endeavour to look back and chart his growth and expansion. 

      I wish you all the very best in creating your own family and the rewards you will reap from that good vibe investment.

      Enjoy the photos and thank you for your comment!

      Cheers!

  4. Photography is definitely an amazing pursuit either as a career or an just an hobby. I have have seen my friends who out of their love for taking great pictures with their phone camera proceed to developing real passion for it. They learn more about it and advanced to becoming professional photographer. I can confidently say photography is a very lucrative business as have seen it change the lives of many financially. I love taking great pictures too just that have decided to stick to my phone camera, lol. Great article.

    1. Hi Seyi,

      I really appreciate the enthusiastic and supportive nature of your comment. I too, love taking pictures and am pleased to hear you find value in photography too!

      Thank you for your comment and enjoy your photographs!!

  5. Photography is a beauty to gateway to the past. The reminiscent of the time past can  be brought back into life. Without photographs a recall of the time past will never be complete. Only if there can be a power to take photography into the future, hey just kidding. 

    In may candid opinion photographs and the art of photography is the benchmark of the modern era.

    1. I agree that photography is a great marker to view what has come before us.  Quantum physics suggests that past, present and future all exist simultaneously, so you may just be kidding about a photo in the future, but it may just be possible and that, my friend, would be a pretty cool vibe!  

      I appreciate your humble opinion and wish you a most vibrant day ahead!

  6. A good photographer is one who is very creative and adds beauty and color to anyone or any snapshots taken. I must commend the quality of those snapshots you uploaded on your article. I think those who makes the most from Photography are the persons who derive fun from  doing it, and not just those who are there only for the money. Thanks so much for this beautiful post, hope to read more subsequent posts from you soon

    1. Hi Dapoach,

      I appreciate your kind words about the photographs and i agree with you that doing anything just for the fun of it usually ends in a good result. 

      Thank you for your comment!

  7. Hi there, this really excellent and educational post about photography and I must tell you that apart from the facts that I learned and understand more reasons why people are taking pictures either for memory reason or others, it excited me to know through your article that the first person to dial photograph is Nicéphore Niépce  alongside with his comrade which is Louis Daguerre, truly it’s an added knowledge to me. 

    1. Hi Yormith96!  

      I am super pleased to hear that you gained new knowledge and have found value in it!

      Thank you for your contribution and have a great day ahead!

  8. I love to take pictures too, I have probably thousands. That is so cool that your son is already taking photos at 7.

    What do you do with all your photos? Do you put the pictures in albums or display them? I have been trying to get my photo off of my phone and computer and printed in scrapbooks but it is a slow process. Especially since I am taking more photos than I am getting into scrapbooks.

    1. Hi Anita!

      I am so happy to hear of your enthusiasm for photography!  I keep many photos in my Google Drive but you can also send away large amounts of photographs and have a book made of them. It did that with my partners blog, actually.  Scrapbooking is an awesome activity!  Do with them what you can and that proves a good vibe.  There is no prescribed formula – just what keeps you enjoying the endeavour that is photography!

      Thank you for your comment and have a solid day ahead!

  9. I can’t imagine a world without pictures and photography as an art. You are right, the benefits of the photograph are quite abundant. It is a way of bringing back the past into the present. It is nice hearing you have been keeping a visual diary of the growth of your child for the past 7 years. I did a similar for my daughter till she was 3 years old. Photographs make the world a beautiful place, and its health benefits are immense

Thanks for sharing this inspiring article on photography.

  13. I love the layout and use and choice of photos, very apt for the topic which is photography.  I myself love taking photos of people, places or things to capture good memories and share with others.  Others I keep to myself for personal keepsake.  With everything going digital, it’s also made it more accessible and cheaper to learn the art and and practice photography.  Maybe some tips for readers who are new to it?

    1. Hi Bern!

      Thank you for your insightful and helpful contribution.  Photography both traditional and digital are endeavours that could yield great study and application. 

       The suggestion for tips for readers who are new to it is a fantastic idea! Keepsakes are a gem to me too!  I am pleased you have an appreciation for photography and I thank you again for your vibrant comment!

      Cheers!
