I'm talking about photography, and I want to explain why this season is the perfect time for you to start exploring this fascinating world of capturing moments.

It's low-impact and allows you to move at your own pace, relieving some of the discomfort we often experience. Plus, the excitement of capturing that perfect shot can be a fantastic distraction from any discomfort you might be feeling.
