Dreaming of a camera indicates your longing for the past. Another explanation could be that you want to focus on a certain situation in your life. You want to capture images so that you can view, assess and relive them.
A camera or camera reflects your source, your base, your heart, your aura, your chakras and your whole being (soul assignments) the energy that flows from it.
Yet another explanation is that you may need a sharper image, better idea in a personal situation, this can have both a positive and negative effect. An alternative explanation is awareness and victory through mirroring and reflection of yourself or of a situation.
Dreams or visions of being taken by a photographer tell you that you want to capture something in your life that you want to draw your attention to so that you can look back on it later. A photo shoot indicates the situation in which you want to experience and discover clarity. This can be the past, history, the present but also a past life.
Pay close attention to what you want to capture, it tells you a lot about how to explain the dream, also look at color and shapes - also how the dream makes you feel, positive or negative.
