Capturing Moments: Digital Memory-Making.
Our smartphones are much more than just communication tools; they’re also ’diaries’, capturing our day-to-day, adventures and special moments, in pixels and megabytes. Here's some creative and fun ways to capture the yearlong journey ahead of memories, fun and adventures.
365 Photo Project: A Snapshot a Day
Picture this: A visual chronicle of your year, one shot at a time. The 365 photo project is a simple way to capture the essence of each day.

At the end of the year, assemble these daily snapshots into a stunning photo collage, a mosaic that tells your ‘everyday’ story.
Time-Lapse Tales: Watch Your Year Unfold
Unleash the magic of time-lapse videos to see the subtle transformations throughout the year. Maybe it's the progress of your green fingers and your hard-work coming into bloom, or maybe you can follow the growth of your new pet. Or perhaps it’s tracking the view from your favourite chair, capturing the seasons outside your window. Time-lapse videos are a great way to see the year unfold.
Digital Journaling: Your Story, Your Words
