Description

By refusing to appear in photographs, you are pulling yourself out of those memories. When you take a step back and realize that these images are ultimately connected to the memories you create with your family and friends, you suddenly realize how important it is to be in these photos. When someone sees a good photo, they are drawn into the scene as if they were there or can remember it with you. One study found that while photographs may help people remember what they saw at an event, they reduce memory of what was said.

In one study, students were asked to take pictures of items in a museum, and they generally remembered fewer of the objects they photographed. In 2011, Fairfield University psychologist Linda Henkel found in an experiment that when participants were simply asked to take pictures in a museum exhibit, their memory of objects and their details decreased. Linda Henkel and her student Caitlin Parisi conducted another study to see what happens to people's memories when they have a photo that reminds them of a moment or something. Afterwards, Linda Henkel had the subjects look at all the photos and asked them about their memory of what they saw click here.

There was a way that the photographs did not destroy the memory of the people in his experiments. Even Linda Henkel's 2014 study, in which participants remembered museum objects more easily if they weren't photographing them, found that a subset of photographers—participants zooming in and photographing details, rather than simply capturing objects in a more general way—actually remembered as much as people who didn't take pictures at all.

Photographers also had a better visual memory for aspects of the exhibition that they did not photograph, compared to visitors who could not photograph. Participants who thought their photos would be deleted and those who were asked to "mentally take a photo" also showed improved visual memory and decreased auditory memory compared to participants who could not take photos.

Interestingly, "mental snapshots" — camera spoofs — also enhanced visual memory, but also had the downside of weakening auditory memory. When the researchers examined visual memory of specific objects, the researchers found that participants who could take pictures performed better on the visual memory task, regardless of whether the object in question was photographed the most or the least. People who take pictures don't look at pictures, so their memory is better not because they can more easily capture the environment in their memory. In various laboratory and field trials, participants were allowed to take pictures normally or were prohibited from taking pictures by handing over their cell phones.

Photos obviously because Photos are facts around which memory revolves.Photo of a single incident could make you remember much more details of that particular incident then just remembering would.Apart from it biologically memories are constructive in nature means you remember things According to your convenience so that would not be reliable in long term.There is a renounce experiment of Frederic Bartlett where he showed the reconstruction of memory and how information changes. And also memory will fed away gradually so photos are always preferable then just relying on memory.
