Be it a weekend escapade to the mountains or a day exploring the woods or a wintry night huddling around a campfire, a camera is the most important companion.

By freezing time through the lens of a camera, we are able to visually relive our memories for years. Cameras are much better than smartphones as far as image quality is concerned. While social media, especially Instagram, takes us into the world of endless hastily snapped images, pictures captured by cameras remind us why professional photography has always been honored as a masterly craft.

To honor the timeless appeal of cameras, June 29 has been designated as National Camera Day. Here are some quotes for the photography enthusiasts to capture more of those aesthetically satisfying and professional-standard images that hit us on a different level.
