Photography is the art of capturing light with a camera, usually via a digital sensor or film, to create an image. Back in the 1930s color photography started to become famous and accessible with the release of Eastman Kodak’s “Kodachrome” film. Before that, almost all photos were monochromatic although a handful of photographers, toeing the line between chemists and alchemists, had been using specialized techniques to capture color images for decades before. You’ll find some amazing galleries of photos from the 1800s or early 1900s captured in full color, worth exploring if you have not seen them already. But as time pass by, photography evolves from kodaks to digital cameras to cellphone cameras. Many people today believe that their phone is good enough for most photography, and they have no need to buy a separate camera. This is true, as the year pass by cellphone cameras are getting better and better that is why most people out there believe that a dedicated camera is overkill. Phones are better than dedicated cameras for most people’s needs. They’re quicker and easier to use, not to mention their seamless integration with social media. It only makes sense to get a dedicated camera if your phone isn’t good enough for the photos you want like photographing sports or low-light environments or if you’re specifically interested in photography as a hobby.

As cameras get better and better, we human beings are getting used to it as we always want to take pictures every day. As a matter of fact, Filipinos are considered number one camera addicts as they surely capture a minimum of 1 to 2 pictures a day. Because, Filipinos really value taking pictures, selfies, groupies, and many more, every day because they consider it as memories that they can hold on to forever. According to surveys Filipinos are in the Top 5 countries who love taking pictures with their mobile phones. Also, Filipinos are considered number one at sharing their pictures or images through social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. In fact, this is also the main reason why Filipinos love to take pictures. Because Filipinos are considered very social people. They are known for their intact relationships with family and friends. Social interactions are a basic part of daily life in the Philippines, even extending to strangers as Filipino hospitality is legendary. That’s why it comes as no surprise that Filipinos are quick to take to social media. We love to take pictures with amazing sceneries together with our families and friends then later on we will post photos at different trending locations which is likely to result in an abundance of likes, heart reactions, shares, and comments from friends and followers.  In some cases, the caption claims may even be exaggerated even if it is not true. Because we value the satisfaction and joy that we received, from the comments left on our posts, or the number of likes or shares by friends and strangers. But as the Covid-19 pandemic arrived in the year 2020, where people have no choice but to stay in the comforts of their homes, Filipinos still find a lot of ways to take pictures in their own homes.

Home means an enjoyable, happy place where you can live, laugh and learn. It’s somewhere where you are loved, respected, and cared for. When you look at it from the outside, a home is just a house.
