Photo manipulation can be used to create some really stunning and beautiful images. For example, this shot of a lone person in the snow looks like it could have been taken on a warm summer day.

Sometimes you need to take a break from the world, and that’s when paul vaughan photography can truly come into its own. Whether you want to document your travels, or just want some peace in your life for once, photography is an outlet you should always keep in mind as a possible crutch.

1. A Great Absence of Time

Time is a precious thing, and I’m sure that everyone reading this has lost time to something. Whether it’s work, or school, or even your job at the local grocery store, time can slip through your fingers quicker than you can imagine. That’s why photography is so great – it lets you take as much time as you need to capture the perfect shot. 

2. Capture Nostalgia

Sometimes when we look at our lives, we feel like things are moving too quickly and we want to take a step back and remember how good things were in the past. This can be brought around through photography. Photos help us remember places and things that we’ve experienced that we wish we could take back- and even things that have happened to us. 

3. The Effort is Worth It

Listening to everyone these days, it can sometimes feel as if they’re not willing to put any work into their lives, or any effort at all. So what do you think people would say if someone were to tell them that the effort they were putting into their lives wasn’t worth it? Photo manipulation isn’t hard, but it does require a certain amount of thought and effort on your part in order for the end result to look anything like what you had originally envisioned.

4. Live Life a Little

Sometimes, people just need to learn how to live life and not take it all so seriously. Photos are a great way to get past that and relive that old-school school spirit. Take some shots of you out with your gang, or maybe the entire school, and let everyone know you’ve got the best time ever!

5. There’s No “I” in Team

Sometimes nothing makes you feel better than having everyone look at your photo in awe and completely amazed by what you’ve captured. And of course, photography is also about capturing that feeling for yourself as well. 

Even if you don’t have a team, maybe one day you’re going to be a photographer and then you’ll have your very own photographer friends. It’s not as hard as it sounds!

6. Have Fun!

The most important thing you can do as a photographer is have fun with it! If you’re not having fun, then why are you doing this? Telling everyone “I’m going to take some cool photos of the sunset” means nothing if you’re not going to enjoy taking them. 

And if you’re not enjoying yourself, then why are you even bothering? You’d be better off just sitting down in front of your computer and writing about how much you hate your life. 

This is the most important thing of all! It doesn’t matter if your picture isn’t perfectly centered or that the lighting is bad or that you didn’t take it in the best conditions – just take some dozen shots before getting yourself too frustrated and just go with what comes out.

7. Learn How to Master Your Own Style

The most important thing in photography is quite simply the style that you choose to utilize. You can’t expect a photograph to look as good as what you had originally imagined unless you master a certain style of your own, and then improve on it even further. 

8. Increase Your Creativity

Don’t underestimate the power of taking some photographs that get other people thinking about things different than what they would normally do. When your creative juices are flowing, it’s hard to go wrong with creativity! 

9. The Art of Manipulation… Sort Of…

Sometimes, I think if we all just put away our cameras for a week, we’d actually be better off. But photography is so good for creating the relaxation and tranquility that we all need. I’m very lucky that I have a camera with me at all times, and I always keep it in my bag to take photos whenever I feel like a change from the real world.


Opening yourself up to the art of photography can be a big help in life. It’s something to always remember, and keep in mind, when you need to take a break from your stressful everyday life. It’s something you should always keep in mind, particularly if you’re someone who has trouble sleeping or even going insane without any form of escape.

And now… Don’t take these as actual reasons why photography is great, but rather a few reasons to make you think about why every once in a while photography can actually work out in your favor.
