With the widespread use of social media these days, sharing great shots of important things is a must for most people, especially at the highest quality available. If you’re also someone, however, who considers it important to keep evidence of great memories to look back on or share with friends and family (or even future generations), then you’ve probably thought of various, creative ways to best store your memories.
If not, here are just a few suggestions to get you started.
Invest in Seriously Good Camera Equipment
If you have a big occasion coming up, or if you’re planning the vacation of a lifetime, taking high quality photos or videos will likely be at the top of your priority list. It can be very disappointing to see some amazing sights and then discover the photos simply don’t do them justice when you arrive back home and begin showing them off to everyone.
Top end camera options like the GoPro can be perfect picks for those who are seeking adventure and are more inclined to an action shot. They’re also available in reliable waterproof options. GoPros can be picked up for bargain prices on Amazon, and don’t forget to look during the days when you can pick up the best Prime deals.
Use Photo Albums
Everything is online these days, including everybody’s pictures, with immediate upload to social media a preference of everybody. If you’re someone who prefers to browse their photos the old fashion way, however, and prefer to have something to physically hold and truly treasure, then don’t neglect the idea of a traditional photo album with high quality print outs.
This is appealing in that as long as you look after it, your memories will last forever, rather than being stored on a computer where your photos could be lost at any time.
Invest in High Performance Computing
If you’re not a fan of the traditional photo album, or you just prefer to have a digital copy too, then investing in high quality computing is a good choice. Ensuring you have a laptop which has a high storage capacity and can quickly download and upload things means you have lots of space for precious photos and videos.
You don’t want to have a stack of great shots from a recent experience and have your laptop tell you that it doesn’t have enough storage.
Make a Scrapbook
If you’re more the creative type who loves the idea of making a book in a quirky way, a scrapbook could be a great alternative to a formal photo album. Invest in high quality prints and photo paper to display your memories, or if you’re a fan of the vintage you could even make use of polaroid photographs. You can then position and arrange these however you like, with scrawled notes or essays of journal entries about your experience. You could maybe even include other items alongside the photos, like theatre tickets or a plane ticket from a particularly memorable vacation.
