Photography Quotes


"The basic material of photographs is not intrinsically beautiful; it's not like ivory or tapestry or bronze or oil on canvas. You're not supposed to look at the thing, you’re supposed to look through it... It's a window".
John Szarkowski


"Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter".
Ansel Adams


"The most difficult thing for me is a portrait. You have to try and put your camera between the skin of a person and his shirt".
Henri Cartier-Bresson


"Before you shoot an irresistible subject, mute all your senses except sight to find out how much is left for the camera to record".
Andreas Feininger


"Think about the photo before and after, never during. The secret is to take your time. You mustn't go too fast. The subject must forget about you. Then, however, you must be very quick".
Henri Cartier-Bresson


"A technically perfect photograph can be the world’s most boring picture".
Andreas Feininger


"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything".
Aaron Siskind


"A photograph is usually looked at, seldom looked into".
Ansel Adams


"I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it".


Those who want to get into photography, should not buy a nice camera; they should buy a book... several books! And not about photography. They should be about design, composition, art. The camera comes last, when they are ready to see what other people can't see.
