“A Cabin is Worth a Thousand Words” is LIVE! This week’s episode is an interview with Bennet Young, a cabin photographer, and filmmaker. This interview is packed full of great information about cabin photography and photography in general!
Erik kicks off this episode by sharing a clip of Ode to the Road by Bennett Young. This got us in the spirit of photography and capturing those special moments you cannot get back.
I shared my family’s yearly video tradition of recording our family trip to Montana. We also talk about great ways to display photos to fun photo op ideas.
Some great ways to pass along special memories were shared by Erik Digitizing old cassette videos and leaving a photo album for the new owners when you part ways with your cabin are a few of his ideas.
They just love looking at all those pictures and reliving it, it’s so special. -Kristin
It may be just a wistful smile that brings you back to those days or that special day and if you can capture it [its really special]. Erik
Following this discussion, I share a lovely message from a follower, Tracy from @plaidandpoppies on Instagram.
