A Photographer’s Mantra

 

When you photograph you have to be prepared to fail, perhaps fail many times.

Expecting great results is the worst discouragement possible, because it means that you will give up the first time you make a barely decent image.

Take your pictures and don’t worry about the results, they will come eventually.

If some image is good it is not because of some great skill you possess. It appears, as if by accident. All you can do is give this accident of fortune enough chances to appear.

Don’t stop watching.

Don’t stop being curious.

  1. I also want to be a great photographer like you!

    I’ve been dreaming of having my own camera ever since. I love photography, animals, and nature. I want to hone my skills in taking pictures and be an amazing photographer someday. I was wondering if you could share any amount so that I could have my own perfect camera.

    Here’s a blog written about me by someone else I’ve never met but she was dedicated to help me in my simple cause of having a great cam:
