    Hi Nikkli, I have a good friend that loves to photogragh any thing and everyone, and I think what it is for her is the reaction that the pics give.

                 I hope that helps.     smile

    I love photography for many reasons, may not even realize all of them, a form of self expression, its art, you can "capture" a second in time and preserve it for an eternity.

      Because it has become far easier to take photos with a digital camera than any other type of traditional camera, I can just whip it out so to speak and take quick snaps of anything that looks interesting,fun or visually exciting.

      Photography allows me express my creative side that I don't normally get to use in my job.

      Being able to see lines, curves, and angles in something ordinary and taking a photo that makes the ordinary look extraordinary is rewarding.

      Also, I enjoy travelling and my husband does not, so being able to bring back photo memories for him to live the trip vicariously through me makes us both happy.

      Now that's a damn good question. I like/ love photography for the following reasons:

      1) I love looking at things.
      2) I want to share with other people how I see the world.
      3) Like playing musical instuments, it helps release some of the emotions I carry inside (I often think of myself as a pressure cooker and art is how I release my emotions and stop myself exploding from the sheer volume of emotions inside. I don't mean just negative either.)
      4) It is one of the few things in life that combines artistic creativity with technical requirement.

      Hope this helps answer your question. Each point I made could be expounded on indefinitely but they summarise pretty much why I like photography I think.

      I love photography because it freezes the beautiful moment God created for us to share with the whole world! Next..
      1. The discovery that everything at the click of a button is captured is so amazing.
      2. Love the feeling of instant capture.
      3. Sharing is a marvelous feeling.
      4. The surprise when what you snapped also brings an added delight you didn't see.
      5. Hoping that you aren't to delayed with the click of the button to capture what you expected..

      The list could go on and on

      I am a writer and I love photography because every picture tells a story, if it doesn't you can always make one up.

      I like different types of Photography for different reasons.

      Weddings - The love that you see in everyone's faces and in their eyes.

      Nature/Landscapes - The beauty of lines, shapes and colors.

      Portraits - Capturing moments and personalities. Preserving them for years to come.

      I like photography because it lets me capture beauty in something or someone that might have otherwise not seen the beauty in themselves.

      Hi!  I am a photographer, professional, and amateur. Ha!  I love it for one main reason, it is my happy place!!

      I get to capture a memory for families.  I get to capture a beautiful sunset, sunrise, beautiful flowers.  There's a ton of reason why I love it.

      Photo's help us with memories for the next generation when we are gone.  Now, that we've all turned to digital, it is easier to share our memories too.

      Editing the photo is one of the reasons also. I've been doing this about 10 years professionally, and I specialize in outdoor photography. I have done indoor, as well, but do not like it, and would rather capture the outdoor pictures.

      I love recording memories. I love the fact that others will cherish what I produce for years to come. I treasure every picture that I have of my mom, brother, and grandparents.  We need to exist in pictures for the sake of our children and grandchildren. I do it because people are precious, and we should never forget them.

      I enjoy photography because it has allowed me to capture beauty in something and capture moments in my own life that I don't want to forget.
