In dreams, cameras usually represent yourself. The vision obtained through the lens is probably more impartial than the vision obtained through the eye. So dreaming that you photograph something or someone probably indicates a desire to see that thing or person in a more objective and less emotional way than you would in real life. It represents your desire to better focus on a particular person or situation.
If the camera does not work well or when developing the picture the image is not clear maybe you are avoiding an issue in real life. It can also refer to your desire to revive the past and keep it forever.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
A camera allows you to record and document the important moments of your life. In this way, it is a symbol that relates to an extension of your memory.

A camera in your dream may relate to a desire to be public about your experience and to continually reflect about where you have been in your journey.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
If you had a dream in which you were using a camera, camcorder and you were taking photographs or filming an event or person from your waking life, this most likely mirrors your sense that time is passing fast and your desire to capture a moment in time before it is gone. In dreams, cameras and camcorders are symbols of committing something to memory and they often appear at times of exam stress, expressing your wish to have a photographic memory that can absorb and retain information quickly.
If you find yourself studying a specific photograph or film that you have taken in your dream, this suggests that something in your waking life may have escaped your attention and you need to re-examine it in more detail. A dream of using a tape recorder may have a similar interpretation to dreams of using a camera or camcorder, in that you wish to remember the chatter and noise that is currently filling your life.
If you hit any of the buttons on your camera, tape recorder or camcorder, this may express a wish to pause, rewind or fast-forward to the past or the future.
If you dreamed of recording your thoughts on a Dictaphone, this may be to ensure that you remember them when you awake.
If you dreamed of peering through a camera lens and become frustrated because everything was out of focus and you couldn’t get it into focus, the suggestion may be that you are not seeing things as clearly as you should in waking life. Perhaps your mind is clouded with emotions and you have lost sight of the truth.
If you fitted a wide-angle lens to your camera or adjusted the focus to improve your vision, the implication may be that you need to take a broader view of your waking situation. Pay attention also to the image you are filming or photographing and ask yourself whether you are portraying it accurately; this will indicate whether you have an accurate or distorted viewpoint in waking life. Finally, do not forget that cameras and camcorders are also tools used by artists and creative people to produce beautiful shots or thought-provoking films, so if you dreamed of feeling happy when using your camera or camcorder, this could suggest that you are neglecting your creative talent in waking life.

(Bag; Pouch; Suitcase; Trunk) A sack or any packing container in a dream represents travels, or activities in general.
A sack in a dream also represents the body of a human being.
An empty sack in a dream then means death. Seeing a sack within a sack in a dream represents the knowledge one benefited from during his life in this world.
If the second sack contains money in the dream, it means that one’s knowledge is true.
If it contains change, it means that one is still studying and needs to further his knowledge.
A sack in a dream also represents one’s personal and secret life. In a dream, if one makes a cut through a sack and throws its contents asunder, it means that his private and intimate life will be exposed and becomes the subject of people’s talk. Ifone’s money falls through a hole in the bag or a purse he carries, the bag also represents his body and the money represents his soul, which is an indication of his death.

In a woman’s dream it can therefore perhaps mean pregnancy, while interestingly enough in a man’s dream il is more likely to mean some kind of womb experience (see Womb in Body). As a symbol of security the womb is often svmbolised in dreams as a bag or sack. Very often the sack as a utilitarian object has the significance of containing something for us - of giving us an opportunity to consider our belongings. We can empty the sack, as it were, and decide what is important to us and what we need to take forward.

(Immolation) To offer a sacrifice in a dream means to fulfill one’s promises, relieffrom difficulty, healing of the sick, or increase in one’s earnings.
If the one offering a sacrifice interprets dreams as a profession, then it means that he has misinterpreted someone’s dream, that he gave him bad advice, or sacrificed the interest of the person in question. Sacrificing in a dream also means receiving an inheritance.
If a pregnant woman sees such a dream, it means that she will bear a righteous son.
Before we can nourish others, we first need to nourish ourselves. Making sacrifices is human, but when we do too much for the world and not enough for ourselves, we are left feeling neglected and weak. Martyrdom is not fun and martyrs are at times annoying.

Dreams of sacrifice denote either maturity, or a disdain of an aspect of self. Also, consider that within the word sacrifice is the root word sacred. Perhaps you are realizing that in order to improve your life, and make it sacred, you need to give something up of lesser value that is no longer serving you. Perhaps this dream is reflecting your willingness to bypass short-term satisfaction for a long-term reward. See Integration Dreams.... Strangest Dream Explanations
(1) If you are being sacrificed in the dream, there are at least three possibilities.
The dream may be drawing your attention to a martyr complex, habitual and compulsive self-punishment, self-denial or self-denigration. Such negative conditioning can be got rid of only by reconditioning, by making positive affirmations every day: for example, ‘I love myself dearly5, ‘I accept myself totally5, ‘I have a unique value5, and ‘I desen e all the good things life offers me.5
Your unconscious may be telling you it is time to let the old you die, to make way for the new and truer you. The self-image you have accepted and conformed to in the past is probably too lopsided and needs to be supplemented by utilizing capacities or qualities that have till now lain dormant; or it may have led you completely astray from your true self, in which case it needs to be removed altogether.
Perhaps the dream is expressing a feeling that you are being abused or undervalued by other people.
(2) Arc you doing the sacrificing? If so, what is being sacrificed will usually represent some aspect of vour personality - desire, ambition, habit, prejudice - that you have given up or are being urged (by your unconscious) to give up. (If an animal is being slain, it will probably symbolize an instinctual impulse or emotion.) This is one of many cases where you have to decide whether a dream is descriptive or prescriptive: showing what you have done (and asking you to stop doing it), or showing what you ought to do. You should have no difficulty in
knowing whether you have done what the dream depicts.
If you have, the dream is asking you not to do it.
If you have not done it, the dream is asking you to do it, for the sake of personal fulfilment.
It is important to remember that sacrifice is meant to be creative: it is the giving up of something in order to achieve and enjoy something better. And if you think ‘better’ has nothing to do with enjoyment but means simply what duty requires, then you need to remember that making a sacrifice either resentfully or merely for duty’s sake is bound to be destructive in its effects both on you and on those you are in relationship with.
It is also important to remember that ‘To everything there is a season... a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast aways (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 6). There comes to us all a time for transcending animality (e.g. making sex a vehicle for love and adoration) but to attempt such things before the proper time can only breed resentment and end in disaster. Your dreams will tell you the time!
(3) Is your act of sacrifice a violent one? If so, it would suggest that some (partly unconscious) mechanism of self-punishment is at work in you and you urgently need to ask yourself why you feel guilty. Almost certainly the cause will lie in early childhood and will be an entirely innocent desire.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

If the victim of the sacrifice is you, the dream could be a reflection of your attitude in real life.
It is possible that you make a martyr of yourself or that you have self-blaming tendencies. In this case, you probably feel that everyone else makes light of you, forgetting your talents and qualities.
If you make a sacrifice, you should consider what it is that you are sacrificing. An animal could signify your natural instinct; a person that you know, and aspect of yourself that you do not want to accept. In spiritual terms, the ego should be sacrificed so that the divine you can enter into the light.
In antiquity, sacrificial rituals were a way to appease the gods and add fertility to the earth. They sacrificed people for the good of cosmic and social unity. In Egypt, Osiris was quartered by his brother, Seth; in Greece, Orpheus was ripped to pieces by a group of women; in Christianity, Jesus was crucified. These acts of divine delivery still exist in modern life.... The Big Dictionary of Dreams
Many ancient cultures used the ritual sacrifice of a life to show devotion to the Divine. In this way, the essence of sacrifice is the exchange that is buried within it. There is a principle in dream work that when a death occurs, it is like a sacrifice, where the old way of being is released in order to birth something new.

Often a sacrifice is made because of passionately held beliefs, often religious in origin.
2- There is usually some expectation of a forthcoming just reward (often spiritual), for having made sacrifices.
There may be an element of deferred gratification in that we do not expect an immediate reward, except that of feeling good or knowing one has clone the right thing.
