why men need to embrace photography a lot more

Back in the day, the roles in society where clearly stated for society. The men were providers and protectors while the women were nurturers of the home. It was that simple and nothing changed with this dynamic for quite a while.

Fast forward to the late 20th century and early 21st, things started to change with the introduction of new technology. The introduction of modern photography was one that shook the world – the fact that people could capture moments through photos and cherish them for years was a step in the right developmental direction. Whether it was through printed photos or soft copies, there was a change in how things were done.

However, not everyone embraces change at the same pace. The women of the new age took on documenting their lives through photography much more than their male counterparts. Maybe this was due to the fact that ladies are normally more self aware and conscious about their appearance than men.

The machismo man of the early 2000’s wasn’t about to take as many photos as a woman. This was because majority considered taking photos as a trait that steered far away from manly characters. Yes, there was a portion of men that embraced it but not as much as the ladies did.

Even to this day, women still take a lot more pictures according to surveys from photo studios and random assessments from smart phone pictures posted online. There is still a portion of men who steer away from photos.
