2. It Opens Your Eyes and Mind
This is the first benefit that most people think of when photography is mentioned: the fact that photography forces you to see things according to new angles, new perspectives, and new lenses. Nobody can see things like a photographer, not even an artist.
But what does this really mean in practice? Essentially, we’re saying that photography unlocks a part of you that lets you see things that were always there but you never cared to notice. It opens up a new dimension in your brain.
Photography requires that you approach subjects from unusual angles and perspectives in a physical sense, but it also molds you in a way that lets you see those same subjects from new metaphorical angles and perspectives. It changes you, often for the better.
