It's National Camera Day!!!

Every single one of us loves a good camera, but for a photographer, the camera is a magical thing. Today, in appreciation of National Camera Day, we wanted to show you this great history of the photographic camera. For as long as we have known, people have been taking photos... and how cool is it to see how the equipment that is needed has changed and progressed over the years? 

Taking photos are so special to pretty much everyone. We all do it, (some just much better than others)! We all take photographs and hire photographers for the special moments in our lives that we want to cherish forever. Weddings, graduations, baby's being born, anniversaries, and more. 

Personally, we at Camera Giveaways love the portraits we have that we display proudly around our homes of our family and friends. Each of them allows us to showcase what is important to us and lets us cherish those memories that we will never be able to relive again. 

A photograph is an amazing thing and to all you awesome photographers who take and capture those special moments, WE THANK YOU!!!! You may capture the moment when a bride and groom are first announced as a married couple, or the sweet newborn photos of a precious baby. You may prefer shooting amazing landscapes of our wonderful world, or love the thrill of trying to capture an exotic animal in its own habitat. Perhaps, you simply own a camera and enjoy capturing moments of your own family and friends just for fun. Whatever type of photography you do, it is special. Not only today, on National Camera Day, but every day! 

We hope you enjoy this history of the camera!
