My camera shutter speaks
My lens sees the light
Painting with the shades
Expressing myself right

Pictures are a meaning
Of images I have seen
Silver halide colors dyeing
They show you what I mean

Right exposure
Seeing is an art
Meter readings
Feeling is an art
Right depth
Correct focus
Knowing is an art

My camera is ready
Ready for my commands
To capture fleeting images
The best way that I can

Images of the real
Feelings from my sight
Taking pictures until I die
Or until I lose my sight

Correct exposure
Correct readings
Sharp focus
Good depth
Right light
Got it right
Living is an art
