I have been nominated by fellow photography blogger Angela Furtardo (Shoot’ngo, Adventures in Photography – Angela creates a photo post every day) to take part in a challenge to post my three favourite quotes (one each for three consecutive days). Thanks for the nomination, Angela!
I am not one for quotes, as a rule, but got looking at a few from famous photographers, and thought “why not?” with one caveat. I am meant to nominate 3 bloggers each day to take up the challenge, but like some others, I have decided to throw this open to anyone who wants to have a go… Cheating? Maybe..
Anyway, here is quote number 1, which I only came across recently, but it resonates with the way I am now:
“I tend to think of the act of photographing, generally speaking, as an adventure. My favourite thing is to go where I’ve never been”
– Diane Arbus
In the past, I just pointed the camera and took photographs. Now, I am trying to improve my skills, and attempting to create my own vision, my own stories, my own atmospheres.
