My Top 10 Favorite Photography Quotes

Every photographer will at one point say the words "Why am I doing this?"  or "My photos aren't good enough".  I know I have said both these things at some point in time.   Its important to remember that you are good enough, and that your photos are not just a digital copy of the world you see but a memory.   Its the smile of a 2 year old that a mother will fondly remember and look at  years to come,  its that special candid moment you captured between father and son.    At the end of the day, no one cares about how many pixels the photo was or how many hours you spend editting.  The importance of the photo is the memory it captures and the feelings it ignites when viewed.   Please enjoy my favorite photography quotes that remind me that its okay to not be perfect!

 

 

"You don’t take a photograph, you make it."
~ Ansel Adams


  "Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow."

"You cannot depend on your eyes if your imagination is out of focus. "
~ Mark Twain

"Owning a DSLR does not make you a photographer. It makes you a DSLR owner."

"The difference between an amateur and a professional photographer is that the amateur thinks the camera does the work. And they treat the camera with a certain amount of reverence. It is all about the kind of lens you choose, the kind of film stock you use… exactly the sort of perfection of the camera. Whereas, the professional the real professional – treats the camera with unutterable disdain. They pick up the camera and sling it aside. Because they know it’s the eye and the brain that count, not the mechanism that gets between them and the subject that counts."
~ David Hemmings

"Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field."
~ Peter Adams

“The important thing is not the camera but the eye.”
~Alfred Eisenstaedt

"If your photos aren't good enough, then you're not close enough"
~Robert Capa

"Look and think before opening the shutter. The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera."
~Yousuf Karsh

"A great photography is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed."
~Ansel Adams
