“Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding still.”- Dorothea Lange
Photography is a way that people can let out their frustrations, they can put all of their emotions into their photos. If you ever want to know what people love, watch what they photograph. You can figure out what they are thinking by looking at their photos.
Others see it as a meditation, they can get away from everyone and everything by doing photography or cinematography (video photography).
You can see the world in all new perspectives with photography, you can use difference lenses. For example, if you use a macro lens to take photos really close up. You can have the same scenery as someone but you can take two totally different photos. You can make them look any way you want, by using different lens and different angles, you can take the most wonderful photos. You can create stories, capture memories, there’s no limit to what you can and can’t do.
“A camera is a save button for the mind’s eye”- Roger Kingston
“You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again. You can also look at a picture for a second and think of it all your life.”- Joan Miro
People ask, “Why do you take photos?” “Why do you like photography so much?” Photographers reply with “It’s my way to show people how the world looks through my eyes.”
“I like how you can change the way things look, you can take it from being just a flower to an environment for microscopic animals. You can change the value of something small to make it even greater.”- Maddie Vroman
“Photography is an excellent opportunity for 23-year-old girls to take black and white pictures of soda cans on the street, and call it ’empowering'” -Liam Polito
