Profile Information

Van Nuys California
About Me:
Been in doing digital photography from almost a yr and half started with a point and shoot, still constantly learning the craft the most important thing about photography either you shoot film or digital is learning the basics, learning your camera inside and out and the technicality of it, cause concepts, composition and creativity will fall naturally, and @ the same time to interact with fellow photographers who are very passionate as I am..."Let our Exposures speaks for Itself"...."The World is Our Studio, Let's Capture it"....."Shoot to live"....

I hope by attending workshops/classes, reading books and online tutorials/online forums, sharing info and insights/techniques w/fellow photographers around the globe/world and as well by trial and error will bring my photography into a whole new level, just amateur/hobbyist but I want this to be a lifelong passion, what I see I want the whole world to see through my eyes.....behind the lens..A photographer's eyes- A photographic Triangle: ISO, Aperture and Shutter some photography quotes ranges from Adams, Eastman, and so on and again Thanks in viewing my profile feel free to add feedbacks and comments or testimonials, God Bless and Keep on shooting

“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.” (Ernst Haas)

Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter. - Ansel Adams

Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography. - George Eastman

Photography is savoring life at 1/100th of a second- Marc Riboud

At some point photography becomes autobiographical. In order to create better photos, we need to go out and to develop who we are-Chris Rainier

To create better photos, you need to become a better person-Rodney Smith

To be an artist, to be a photographer, you have to nurture the things that people discard, you have to keep them alive-Richard Avedon

We do not take pictures with a camera, but with our hearts and minds-Arnold Newman

"My passion has never been for photography 'in itself...but for the possibility — through forgetting yourself — of recording in a fraction of a second the emotion of a subject, and the beauty of the form." - Henri-Cartier Bresson 1994
