The impact of taking too many photos
Jun 23, 2022
You might take several images at an event to enjoy them as a memory but it turns out that taking too many pictures obstructs recalling the event. When people want to capture a moment, they are paying attention to it instead of enjoying the moment. Our brains are more engaged in capturing the right moment than retaining the memory. Distraction does not help the brain to remember. If we minimise taking pictures, memory can be improved ..just take only a few pictures and put the phone to rest.
