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"
Unknown

"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 - Painted Reality

Ants by m-v-c



Welcome to another themed feature!


There are so many different styles in traditional and digital painting. (Hyper-) Realism is one I find astonishing. It's great to think something is a photo only to discover later it's a drawing or painting.
Enjoy this small collection and please check out the artists' galleries to find more awesome art.

I See You by hersley



Welcome to another themed feature!


No matter how much I enjoy laughing and smiling people, especially children, I am captivated by these darker and melancholic moments. They can tell so many stories.

Themed Feature - Raw Emotions
Welcome to another themed feature!
We all know them: happy moments, sad moments; times when we think we can't go further, when we just want to scream to get the pent-up emotions out; and the feeling of comfort once we found someone to confide in and the willingness to start again.

Themed Feature - DancingWelcome 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.
