National Photography Month is May every year and is a celebration of the art of photography. For this month, many photography organizations offer contests and events to get involved in. If you are not an avid photographer, this might be a time to consider picking up a camera and bring to take pictures.

Even if you are not a photographer, you can still enjoy photos that other people have taken. Some take pictures of scenery or portraits for artistic purposes. Additionally, photography can be used for document purposes. Documentary photography is not only beautiful, but can also unlock a particular time period that we may not have lived through.

So, check out the various gallery events taking place on the island and enjoy someone's art work for the end of National Photography Month.
