The last year and a half have given people a lot of time to start new hobbies and pick back up with old ones. With the rise in popularity of visual social media platforms and an opportunity for at-home food/fashion/interior photography to open up multiple avenues, it is no surprise that photography has been a popular choice.
Now the world is now slowly opening back up again, you are going to want to document upcoming travels and day trips. If you have the ability, fantastic photography can be a great way to capture those memories to look back on later.
