How You Can Make Good Use of Being Snap Happy
In a digital world where everything can easily be documented through smartphones and digital cameras, being a snap happy individual usually means having hundreds or even thousands of photos stored in your device. Being someone who loves to take a shot on everything you think is interesting is kind of a unique thing because not everyone would want to spend their time snapping photos.
And even though you usually don’t pay that much attention to those photos once you take them and they remain in your device, there actually are various ways in which you can give them more value. So if you just can’t get rid of your snap happy personality, you might as well learn how to take advantage of your tons of photos.
1 – Create memories for friends.
It’s no secret that maybe more than half of those photos you have in your storage contain the faces of your friends. So instead of having to hide and store them forever, why not print them out and make a collage? Yes, you can easily give them a digital copy of those photos so that they can view them through their own devices, but you can’t deny that a collage is a little more sentimental and romantic, right? Certainly anyone who receives this kind of memorabilia will appreciate and value it.
2 – How about stock photos?
Well, there are some people who aren’t fond of having their photos printed, but still, you can have another way to give them value. This is by way of selling or handing them out to stock photo websites. The moment these companies get ownership of the photos, they will sell it to other people who need it for stuff like online newspapers, business websites, personal blogs, and even magazines. As for your perspective, it’s definitely nice to see someone taking interest and appreciating your own work.
3 – Give printed art containing your photos a chance.
We talked about earlier on how you might be one of those who aren’t willing to have your photos printed. But what if we tell you that you might actually be talented enough in photography that some of your photos can pass as legitimate art? There have been so many cases when snap happy individuals got an offer from someone to have their photos purchased in the form of an art, or like printing and framing them. This is actually not new in the art industry since many amateur photographers found themselves getting paid top dollar after figuring out that they actually own photos that are worthy enough to be called as artwork.
In the end, you just have to realize that while you consider many of your photos as nothing special, some other people out there may appreciate and value it more than you do, and it’s up to you to take advantage of that.
