Photography for the Visually Impaired – Not as Strange as You Might Think

Photography is one of the most vision intensive hobbies, so many visually impaired people have the misconception that they can’t enjoy it.  Actually, nothing could be further from the truth.  There are visually impaired fine art photographers such as Kurt Weston, and visually impaired photographers, such asBruce Hall, who have works on display at the Smithsonian.  Totally blind people take pictures and use cameras on a more regular basis then you might imagine.  People shouldn’t let a visual impairment keep them from photography.  All you need is to know how to adapt the picture-taking process to your particular needs.  Here are a few suggestions on how that can be accomplished:
