National Camera Day

The camera has come a long way from the optical device it was developed from – the camera obscura, or pinhole camera, which could be a portable box or an entire room! Nowadays, not only can you take a decent picture with your phone, but you can instantly share your captured memories via social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and the increasingly popular Instagram.

Celebrate National Camera Day by taking pictures, of course! Use your digital camera or camera phone or travel back in time and make your own pinhole camera. Capture your family, a beautiful landscape or seascape, portraits of friends or complete strangers (with their permission, of course), close ups of nature, anything you want! Don’t forget to edit your pictures! If you have access to a dark room, take pictures with a 35mm camera and develop your own film.

National Camera Day is also the perfect opportunity to focus on your photography skills:
