Happy National Camera Day! I took this shot with my Canon Powershot Elph 110 HS (which I carry all the time) of the reflection of Mt.

So I guess today is #nationalcameraday and cameras are one of my favorite things in the world because they allow me to be creative and do what I love to do. This is a photo of me when I was about 4 years old. Photography isn't something I grew to love, I'll put it that way 😜 thanks mom for letting me use 8 film rolls a week taking pictures of all my dolls.

June 29 is National Camera Day so we're taking a moment to appreciate those who take time to stop and take a snapshot of the roses. Cameras are a modern convenience that we easily take for granted. With the incredible technology of cell phone cameras you can snap pictures of anything and everything at your leisure.

Cameras have come a long way -- from being the size of an entire room, to being small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Although film is a dying breed, many photographers still use it as their medium of choice. Some shoot with expensive Leica or Hasselblad cameras and some use inexpensive plastic Holga cameras, which appeal to those who like perfectly imperfect photos. Even instant film has made a huge comeback.

In the age of the internet, digital photography is at its peak. You can strap a GoPro to your head while snowboarding or even have a drone camera follow you around.

Check out the slideshow above of photographers and their cameras doing what they do best!
