Life takes a different course after retirement and photography is a great way to capture the changes and become one of the best retirement hobbies. After retirement, there is ample time left, so one can make use of the time to pursue a hobby to keep themselves engaged.

Photography is good pastime and keeps one active and close to the happenings of the world. It is good since one can spend a lot of time both indoors and outdoors and so it becomes a good form of exercise. One can rediscover himself and enjoy life even as you grow older. Photography is an art and can be enjoyed in all kind of weather.

I have seen my father pursue photography as a hobby after retirement. He had made friends with four other people with similar interest and they would go to wildlife sanctuaries, to deserts and to different places to capture the moods of people as well as nature in their camera. Today, we have large collages made of different seasons and wildlife. It gives immense pleasure and satisfaction to my father on seeing those photographs.

One can capture the varied changes of nature through digital photography. It is best to buy a digital camera, as it is cost-effective and once the snaps are taken, it can be downloaded and stored on the computer in different folders. One stored the pictures can be deleted from the camera to create more memory space to capture photos. One can take special interest in nature, wildlife, landscapes, and portraits. The digital camera has an LCD screen so it becomes easier to have a look at the photograph immediately after it is taken. It can be changed and taken from a different angle also.

I really feel that photograph keeps one engaged and is a very good hobby for anyone.
