FC: One eye is taken for an eye -CCR | By: Amy Steckman

1: I am an amateur and I intend to stay that way for the rest of my life. - Andre Kertesz

2: Trying to remember, I have learned, is like trying to clutch a handful of fog. Trying to forget, like trying to hold back the monsoon. -Patricia McCormick

3: Your photography is a record of your living, for anyone who really sees. -Paul Strand

4: And is it worth the wait all this killing time? Are you strong enough to stand protecting both your heart and mine? -Florence + The Machine

5: Only to condemn the one who hears it with a heavy heart. -Florence + The Machine

6: You can't blame someone for walking away if you didn't do anything to make them stay. -Me

7: It's weird that photographers spend years or even a whole lifetime, trying to capture moments that added together, don't even amount to a couple of hours. -James Lalropui Keivom

9: I wish more people felt that photography was an adventure the same as life itself and felt that their individual feelings were worth expressing. To me, that makes photography more exciting. -Harry Callahan

10: Someone told me long ago there's a calm before the storm, I know it's been comin' for some time. When it's over, so they say, it'll rain a sunny day. -CCR

13: 1/5 Top Photos I honestly couldn't say what aperture I used or what techniques I attempted to try. I just repeatedly hit the button and hoped that something good would show up; guess I'll just call this one: Luck. I sat with my dog, Abbey, and forced my camera to capture her perspective, and that's literally what I got. This picture blows me away because not only was I able to take her looking out the window, but I was also able to get the reflection of the window in her eye. Look closely.

14: 2/5 Top Photos This was actually taken back in September, and my goal was to, once again, capture Abbey's point of view. I laid on the floor in front of our front door and patiently waited for Abbey to do anything but lay there. After staring at her for quite some time, I had noticed that she was giving me the picture I was waiting for all along....her point of view.

17: 3/5 Top Photos Just like the previous photo, I wanted Abbey's view, so I laid on our driveway and hoped my picture would give a better perspective. After capturing this, the weather gave it an antique look, and by editing the garage and landscape, I gave it a heavy look. The dark edges give it depth and the space between us shows distance; symbolically and metaphorically speaking.

18: 4/5 Top Photos My reason for this being, hands down, an amazing top photo would be for this one reason: her nose. I love this picture because I laid directly in front of her and got a beautiful shot of her face. Personally, I don't think it's one of those corny close ups either, it's very genuine and welcoming. I adore the black and white coloring as well because it brings more emotion.

21: 5/5 Top Photos Last, but certainly not my least top photo. This photo is one of my top 5's because I love how close I was able to get, while still managing to capture one of her paws in the picture. I feel by including the paw, it adds much more emotion, rather then just having her face. Again, I made this black and white because it is almost able to speak as if someone was reading a story.

22: Reflection Of Achievement | I'm no expert or photographer so there's no use drowning this out with fancy terms and definitions that clearly make no sense. I have no intention on boring you so I'll cut to the objective of this whole thing. This semester, not only did I learn the word: rasterize, but I learned just how much I can really push myself and the true meaning of satisfaction. Sure, none of my pictures are gallery perfect but I admire all of my work that I put into each and every one of my photos. The feeling of being truly satisfied with your own work is an unbelievable feeling, and money can't even began to pay off how content I am with my beautiful pictures.

I checked out a few profiles on Flickr, just to get some ideas. I looked at some websites, like national geographic and Google images just to see some examples.
