HELP YOUR BRAIN 3 WAYS
Creative photography helps you get a healthier brain 3 ways by increasing brain activity, physical activity and social activity.
1. INCREASE BRAIN ACTIVITY
For the brain to exercise it needs unique challenges. Looking at different creative choices and combinations of creative choices when photographing gives your brain a great workout.
2. INCREASE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
Increased physical activity is good for your health but also sends more blood to the brain which is good for it. Getting up and moving around to photograph different subjects from different angles increases your physical activity. You can do it indoors, outdoors and even take a road trip.
3. INCREASE SOCIAL ACTIVITY
Social activity is very important for your brain. Going out and taking photos gets you out of the house and you have more of a chance to meet people. You can also do it as an activity with family members or friends.
Sharing Photos Online: You can share your photographs on your Facebook page with family and friends around the world. You can also share your photos on photo sharing websites. Telling the story of how you took the photograph is great for social interaction as well.
NO CHOICES vs. CREATIVE CHOICES
Just walking around taking photos is not challenging for the brain. Learning how to create photographs by combining different creative choices gives your brain a unique challenge and great workout.
