Hello,

Would you be so kind to tell me the difference between the use of "to" and "for" in the following sentences:

I normally use this pencil to draw pictures.
I normally use this pencil for drawing pictures.

I use this knife to cut meat.
I use this knife for cutting meat.


I use this camera to take photos.
I use this camera for taking photos.


Thanks for your help
