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"

Contest Winners - Hues of Nature

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 26, 2015, 2:09 AM

HUES OF NATURE



by IndigoSummerr 
:iconindigosummerr:

A photography contest about all the beautiful colours in nature.

First of all I apologise for the late feature! I don't know if I missed the winner's announcement or just forgot about it. However, yesterday I saw this feature and thought 'I know that contest'. and I definitely have visited a lot of the participants' galleries
but I couldn't find a winners feature in my journal history, so here you go. If I already did a feature enjoy the extra exposure. :D

Edit (seconds after publishing): Um, lol? Just after submitting this feature I looked at the 'more from' section to the right, and there it was, the "original" winners' feature  (from February 18th). I am a dummy! Anyway, I will keep this feature.

It was hard to ignore all those delicious sweets made with berries, but I wanted this feature to be about the berries themselves. I hope you enjoy.

Themed Feature - Cornfields and PoppiesWelcome to another themed feature!
I love the dreamy feeling that is created by a cornfield glowing golden in the light of a low standing sun.
And then I see a poppy and it adds something magical.
Silly, arent' I? What about you, fancy a visit into my personal fairytale?

Themed Feature - Vertical ScapesWelcome to another themed feature!
When I think of landscape photos, most times I think of a horizontal format, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. Ever heard the term "landscape format"?
However, every now and then it's good to do things differently. I hope you enjoy this little collection of vertical land- and waterscapes photos.
