Black and white are the colours of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.
Passion Photography takes more than just a camera, it takes feeling.
Photos can be so captivating, such as this tear.
You can feel the sorrow and sadness just by looking at the single tear rolling down a cheek.
There can be more passion and feeling in one single photo then what you
feel over your entire day and such feeling comes from the person
that takes the picture.
As the quote says, "A pictures worth a thousand words."
Imagination You need to imagine what you are going to capture in a memory or in film.
"Taking a picture is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second."
- Marc Biboud
"People can be cruel they say, don't think about it they say. Just because I have religious rights doesn't mean I can't be beautiful." - Unknown
"A great photograph is one that funny expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed."
- Ansel Adams
Wonder "Wonder rather than doubt is the root of knowledge." - Abraham Joshua Heschel
“Is a picture really worth a thousand words? What thousand words? A thousand words from a lunatic, or a thousand words from Nietzsche? Actually, Nietzsche was a lunatic, but you see my point. What about a thousand words from a rambler vs. 500 words from Mark Twain? He could say the same thing quicker and with more force than almost any other writer. One thousand words from Ginsberg are not even worth one from Wilde. It’s wild to declare the equivalency of any picture with any army of 1,000 words. Words from a writer like Wordsworth make you appreciate what words are worth.”
- Jarod Kintz
Sensitivity An image needs to have feeling to interest the viewer
The definition of beauty these days are so warped and meaningless that whom ever listens to those definitions and compare themselves are just plane broken.
Everyone is beautiful on the inside and out.
"I have more awareness of other people and, I hope, more sensitivity to their needs. I also find that I'm more direct and outspoken."
- Christopher Reeve
Compassion "Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive." -Dalai Lama
“For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.”
- Henri Cartier-Bresson
Curiosity "The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing." - Albert Einstein
Beauty in the little things, and every movement is what I live for.
Devotion I will never give up.
A picture (to be the amazing image it really is) needs all of the factors that I have written on this page plus so much more. You can't fully say what an image is in such few words, but you may try.
I can not explain how magical he perfect picture is, but you will know it when you see it. It has every virtue incorporated into the single image of pure feeling.
To get that perfect image takes some serious devotion and time, because you need to know what it needs to be able to capture that, but sometimes the perfect picture is just a total fluke. A butterfly could fly in front of your camera while you are trying to take a picture and it turns into a delicate and beautiful image that you never knew could be created.
Feeling An image needs to have feeling to captify the veiwer
“He owned an expensive camera that required thought before you pressed the shutter, and I quickly became his favorite subject, round-faced, missing teeth, my thick bangs in need of a trim. They are still the pictures of myself I like best, for they convey that confidence of youth I no longer possess, especially in front of a camera.”
- Jhumpa Lahiri
Grace Elegance and beauty of movement or expression.
A picture has this sort of... elegance that nothing else can ever have, by capturing a moment in time that will and shal not ever be exactly remade.
