Quotes

Photography is a window to place, time and memory.” — Soomin Ham

If you want more creative photographs, you need to learn to think more creatively: not different gear, but different thoughts.” — David duChemin

The decisive moment is a great concept, but we don’t experience the world that way. Life is a montage of occurrences that comes together over time. By spending several hours shooting a scene and merging elements from each into a single frame, I create, in some way, a truer depiction of that space because I’m not capturing an outlier moment.” — Sean J. Sprague

  1. it is very impressive to see your artistic evolution. the lili’s image has so much motion and drama! it goes beyond the image of a flower.
    the marsh’s photo is a good addition to your series. the mood and composition are effective.
