For many readers of the Phoblographer, you’re probably celebrating the Christmas holiday today. And today should be not only a day that you spend with those you love and care about the most, but also one that makes you remember to not only take photographs, but make them. Beyond just making the photographs, make them special.

In today’s mostly digital-centric photography world, we take photos, post them online and forget about them. But truth be told, that wasn’t photography was designed for. Photography was designed to capture a moment that will last forever. To that end, the way that we have to remember the images that we take these days is to physically surround ourselves with them. Shoot a photo and then print it. But don’t just print any and every photo, print the ones that mean something to you and that tug at your heart.

Though it may not physically last forever, it’s bound to always make you remember that very precious moment in your life.

Happy holidays to everyone.
