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 let’s talk about how you can really take full advantage of being snap happy.
1 – Create memories for friends.
There’s no denying that a huge chunk of those photos you have contain or feature your friends. So instead of having to hide and store them forever, why not print them out and make a collage? Though you can have an easier time by sending them a digital copy instead, printed photos put in a collage or picture frame is just irreplaceable. Rest assured, they’ll give it value and might even hang it in their walls.
2 – How about stock photos?
However, if you’re not really willing to have your photos printed, you at least find another way to give them some use. You probably don’t know it yet, but you actually can sell your photos to a stock photo website online. These companies, and there are hundreds of them out there, will use your photos for different purposes like in posting them in websites, online publications and newspapers, and blogs. As for you, you must look at it as a compliment of the photos you’ve taken.
3 – Give printed art containing your photos a chance.
We’ve mentioned earlier that you might be one of those unwilling to have your own 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 quite a few instances in which snap happy people realized that many of their photos could be very interesting for collectors and art aficionados that they will never hesitate to buy them. It isn’t really something you consider as new because there have been so many amateur photographers who made it big just because they also were snap happy back then and have collected a lot of good photos that could pass as genuine and legitimate artwork.
So those are just some of the ways you can take advantage of your photos, and no matter how random you think they are, there really is no telling how much value they have to other people.
