Why should you share your travel photos and videos

 photo elnido_zpsm5fkjcok.jpg

The sense of sight is the most evolved of all our five senses. It uses a larger part of the brain than any other sense. A picture is worth a thousand words – it is also the memory of a time and place. Sharing these memories with family and friends is an age-old custom.

In days gone by, sharing pictures was a reason to get together. It happened face to face over a coffee or a drink. Each photo was passed around and accompanied with its unique story. A photo was something you held, it was touch and feel. Families bonded over these occasions, while reliving memories. But only a small select group, the ones who mattered, got to share these memories.

Today these memories are captured digitally and posted on multiple social platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and dreamstime, among others. Most of the pictures you post are Free pictures that can be downloaded by anyone. You get to share them with a wider audience, but sharing is no longer a one on one experience. Connecting with your circle is via likes, comments and tags on your posts. The photo itself is no longer touch and feel. It’s something you see on a screen.

Sharing is no longer within your select group. It’s there for the world to see. Your family, friends and other travelers you may want to help. For some it can be intimidating, but below a certain age, it’s a way of life. Times have changed, but in other ways, things stay the same.

The power of a picture to capture your imagination remains unchanged. To see a picture and understand the emotion of the subject or the story the picture tells, can be a very powerful experience. At the end of the day, we are visual creatures. We are captivated by what we see. Sometimes we look at a picture and marvel at the photographer’s skill. If photography is your hobby and you want to get better at it, these are some tips you can keep in mind:

 

  • Light: The best light to capture practically any subject is an hour after sunrise or an hour before sunset. The two help in creating very different moods.

 

  • Research the location: Make sure you visit the place before you shoot. Look at the view from different angles. Evaluate the impact from each angle.

 

  • Feel the place: Learn how to say hello in the local language. Greet people before you ask their permission to click them. Your photo has to be more than just visual. It should tell the story of the place – to convey that you have to experience it first. Get lost while exploring, sit in a café and watch the world go by. Don’t eat where you see tourists. Eat at places packed with locals.

People share pictures for different reasons. Sometimes it’s to relive their experience. Others post them on blogs or travel sites. If you have committed followers, sharing your photos is a way for them to connect with you.

Sponsored Video: Releasing the Tiger Within Us #Uncage #YouKnowYoureSingaporeanWhen

I am sure there are some people who are stuck in careers they do not like that much. Since they are not happy, they are more prone to stress. They stay in their jobs because it pays well or it is the only thing that they know how to do. In their hearts they want to break free and take the path that they really desire. Come to think of it, there are career professionals who after years of working in their fields suddenly change careers even if the pay is lesser. That is because it is more satisfying to do something that you really want. Forging your own path and living life on your own terms.

Tiger Beer presents its new campaign #uncage – unleash your pride. This campaign inspires people to take on their dreams and break free from the chains of conformity. “Uncage” encourages you to think on your own, follow your heart, and be more open minded. In line with this concept and in celebration of Singapore National Day, Tiger Beer has collaborated with Tree Potatoes, a Youtube comedy channel run by Aaron Khoo, Elliot Tan, and Janice Chiang. It is such a hit that it is now one of the top three Youtube channels in Singapore. For these three, being uncaged means going after what you want in life and stepping out of your comfort zone.

This light and funny video is a testimony of how proud Singaporeans are of their culture and country. It was done out of their desire to unleash local pride and exhibits the qualities of Singaporeans going about with their daily lives such as walking fast because of the busy way of life, eating in the Hawker Centre, complaining about the weather but getting defensive when foreigners complain about Singapore, calling people by their rank even outside the office, and recognizing the horn of the newspaper boy.

Being one of the leading contemporary beer brands in the world, Tiger Beer has a commitment to tell people to Uncage the Tiger within themselves and break free. Tiger Beer is enjoyed in over 75 countries in Europe, Latin America, Middle East, Australia, USA, and Asia. Do your part in motivating and inspiring people by watching and sharing the video on Twitter and Facebook using #uncage and by sharing what you think of the video and in the process unleashing your pride about Singapore. To know more about this campaign, like the Tiger Beer Facebook page.
