Aug 03, 2021

In this time of uncertainties, people will search for various ways to enjoy the new normal, enjoy condo living, and even connect with people. Being stuck at home might sound boring for almost everyone. With nothing to do at all, or maybe some of us had routines that became repetitive that we eventually disliked. At this moment, most of us will try everything to capture and enjoy every moment of our lives, especially during a pandemic. It may sound problematic after all, it is not easy to explore new hobbies, especially in the new normal. However, that shouldn't stop us from trying new things out! 

In the time of the pandemic, many people are trying to experiment on finding new hobbies as they stay indoors. Some tried to start vlogging, venturing into new businesses such as editing videos through online promo video maker software, and even online selling.

Well, that is when photography comes in. After all, photography is considered one of the best hobbies that you can have and one of the best ways to capture every moment of your life.

Why Photography?

As stated, photography is one of the best hobbies to have and there are many reasons why it is one of the best hobbies to pursue especially now that we are in the new normal!

Capture Events & Memories

Photography will allow you to store and reminisce memories by creating images of the said events, times, locations, and people. It will allow you to share those images with your peers, friends, and family. Eventually, those memories will become part of your life, a photobook of your life journey.  The best part of it is you can pass down those images to your future kin.

Fun-Filled Hobby

The amazing thing about photography is that you can have so much fun with it. You could take a photo of your dog or your family without them noticing and your aesthetic condo design as the background, giving you the most candid yet beautiful shots that you will love. 

Mobile Photography

You can have many opportunities to try new, fun, exciting, and interesting things not just limited to your camera but with your phone as well. Yes! You heard it right! Photography is not just limited to cameras. You can do photography with your smartphone. After all, doing photography on your phone saves time and effort. Plus, you can immediately upload it on your social media accounts and flex those well-made condo design as background.


Photography allows you to cultivate and form your inner creativity and seize the world around you significantly especially, in the new normal. It even helps you build your own style of creativity, which may come in handy in the future. Additionally, bring balance to your condo lifestyle.

Mental Health

Capturing your life is very healthy for your mental health. Photography helps us to see things beautifully and stops us from dwelling on the negative things that happened. Lastly, being able to capture good things will help us practice and spend more time thinking about the good things around us and even see the beauty of your simple and small condo interior design.

Try asking your friends. You don’t need to be embarrassed when asking others for help, tips, advice, and criticisms.  Be open to making new friends that are into photography. Since we are in the new normal. Making friends happens virtually. Therefore, it is a great way to look up to them virtually and stay motivated. Try sharing your work through social media or websites.
