Scrapping Whispers

Scrapbooking and Smartphones

Scrapbooking and Smartphones

Scrapbooking has already become easier in an age where everyone can take pictures with their ubiquitous cameras easily. We always have plenty of snapshots to work with, and we always have plenty of different images to add to our books. Some people might think that the modern world has damaged scrapbooking, but I think it has only strengthened it.

I remember when I first got involved with scrapbooking. I would sometimes go through every single box in the attic looking for certain pictures. Even then, I often wouldn’t find a thing. I would think about all of these great images that I could add to a scrapbook about something, and it turns out that the image in question has been lost to the sands of time forever.

Today, if I lose an image, I can easily find it backed up somewhere in most cases. In all likelihood, I didn’t take too few pictures: I probably took way too many. As a result, I’m going to have to go through each and every one of those pictures in order to find the one that I want. However, I would definitely say that this is the problem that I would rather have.

A lot of smartphone images are still better than the photos that I remember from the 1980s and the 1990s. Polaroid photography was never the best. Today, it has become a thing of the past. To a certain extent, all modern scrapbooks are digital scrapbooks, since they almost always make use of digital photography.
