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"

Hello dear visitor,
welcome to my little page of photos. Take a look and if you have any questions, just ask. Feedback in the form of comments, critiques, faves or watches is most welcome! :love:

I'm a hobby photographer who is trying to find her focus. Sometimes I'm very active and then times flies by fast and I didn't do anything at all. That's just life I guess. I also enjoy featuring others and do so on a regular basis - more info in the box to the left.

I won't thank you for every single fave, although it's very appreciated. What I will do, though, is answer every comment, give back every llama and visit your gallery each time you interact with me in any way. It might take some time and you won't necessarily notice me, but I will take a look. Promise.

Thank you for stopping by!

Sometimes the Stars by jyoujo

Welcome to another themed feature!

I love the cozy light of candles or the soft light coming from lampions, be it to iluminate a warm summer evening outside or my home during the cold winter months.
