Photography Quotes

Photography Quotes

"Life is like a camera... Just focus on what's important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and if things don't turn out – take another shot"

"One of the biggest mistakes a photographer can make is to look at the real world and cling to the vain hope that next time his film will somehow bear a closer resemblance to it...If we limit our vision to the real world, we will forever be fighting on the minus side of things, working only too make our photographs equal to what we see out there, but no better."
Galen Rowell

"Art is the only way to run away without leaving home."
Twyla Tharp

"Amateurs worry about equipment, professionals worry about money, masters worry about light, I just take pictures..."
Vernon Trent

"Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world."
Arnold Newman

"Take nothing but pictures. Kill nothing but time. Leave nothing but footprints."
John Kay - "Nothing But"

Themed Feature - Dancing

Fri Oct 31, 2014, 1:35 PM by serel:iconserel:

Welcome to another themed feature!

Dancing is a much loved hobby of mine and even though I don't go that often at the moment I'm 100% sure that dancing is something that will stay with me my entire life, bringing me joy and happiness. There are so many different aspects of it that you always have something new to learn or something to improve. It never gets boring and you'll never be to old for it.

The Skin Creator

This journal skin was created by :iconsimplysilent: SimplySilent and can be found here:  Virtuoso Journal Skin. Visit her gallery for more CSS codes and widgets to customize your profile.

As you might have noticed this themed feature is a bit different than previous ones. This is because it is my entry for :iconwindklang: Windklang 's Feature Contest. Visit the contest journal Feature Contest [Less than one week left!!] for all details and a link to the other entries.

I think the skin and the theme "Dancing" fit quite well as both are structured and yet colourful and multi-variant for a personal look. 

  If you like this feature, please consider faving it, so others might see it too.
