The origins of today have not been confirmed but National Camera Day goes back many years in honor of the development and importance of photography. Before the camera made it’s way into the hands of ordinary people, life was captured by paintings and only a few masters of their craft were able to accurately portray every day life. Photography has become a convenience now with camera’s coming in multiple forms most commonly in our phones. It is important to remember that every photograph is important and that it is not a luxury but a privilege to be able to record history. So get out today an take a picture.
