“Study and research your favorite photographers to help inspire you with your iphone photography.

One of my favorite traditional photographers is Ruth Bernhard (1905-2006). Ruth Bernhard is best known for her ground breaking black and white female nudes — she also created some amazing still lifes and did some very interesting experimentation with lighting and combining of negatives for photo collages. Some of her amazing work can be found here:

I have kept her “Recipe for a Long and Happy Life” taped to my desk for over 15 years now. I love how simple and straight forward her advice is:

Recipe for a Long and Happy Life
1. Never get used to anything.
2. Hold on to the child in you.
3. Keep your curiosity alive.
4. Trust your intuition.
5. Delight in the simple things.
6. Say “yes” to life with passion.
7. Fall madly in love with the world.
8. Remember today is the day.

I hope you all find her advice as inspiring as I do! If you would like to see Ruth’s recipe written in her own handwriting please click on this link:
