5 Things I Love About Photography!

Good Morning! Here's the feature I promised by the talented Amanda from Paper Cameras. She was so gracious to agree to doing this on such short notice...I asked her just yesterday (gulp). Below she shares "5 Things She Loves About Photography". I'm sure many of you can relate to the passion she has for photography, especially film cameras. I've listed links to her brand new Print Shop, Flickr, and blog so you can view even more of her amazing images. Enjoy!

5 Things I Love About Photography

1. I love that it makes me feel like an artist.
2. I love that I can create something that has never been seen before.
3. I love the satisfaction and joy I feel in my heart when a shot turns out just as I'd planned it.
4. I love that the special light that we all chase, can make something ordinary look kinda magical.
5. I love that when I leave my house with my camera, I may come back with something completely new. It makes me giddy like a school girl.

What do YOU love about photography?


  1. Hey, Vicki, I love your featured photographers series. There are some talented people out there!

    One of the things I like about photography for myself as I am out and about with my camera, is that it causes me to pay more attention to my surroundings, to be more engaged with what's going on around me. I live in a big crowded city, and there's often the temptation to slap on a pair of headphones and dark glasses and walk around in a bubble, disconnected from everything around me. Taking photos makes me stop and take notice of what's happening around me.

  2. I love that I notice details and simple moments more. Beauty comes in breathtaking vast landscapes, but also tiny drops of water on leaves or the color of the sky ...

  3. i love all those things, and as a collector of objects, i love to capture moments through photography to enjoy, again.

  4. I love that even though I have no special talent for photography, sometimes what I'm looking at is so beautiful that my photos are, too :)

  5. i love how it makes me stop and look at the beauty i am surrounded with and how it can capture a special moment. also i love how it emereces me into a magical world of colours, light and shapes

  6. I want cupcakes, thanks a lot!

    :) Julia
