You don't make a photograph just with a camera

You don’t make a photograph just with a camera
Ansel Adams
If your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough.
Robert Capa
There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.
Ansel Adams
Actually, I’m not all that interested in the subject of photography. Once the picture is in the box, I’m not all that interested in what happens next. Hunters, after all, aren’t cooks.
Henri Cartier-Bresson
Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.
Ansel Adams
The camera’s only job is to get out of the way of making photographs.
Ken Rockwell
If a photographer cares about the people before the lens and is compassionate, much is given. It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument.
Eve Arnold
One should really use the camera as though tomorrow you’d be stricken blind. To live a visual life is an enormous undertaking, practically unattainable. I have only touched it, just touched it.
Dorothea Lange
You don’t take a photograph, you make it.
Ansel Adams
Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.
Henri Cartier-Bresson
Often while traveling with a camera we arrive just as the sun slips over the horizon of a moment, too late to expose film, only time enough to expose our hearts.
Minor White
Don’t pack up your camera until you’ve left the location.
Joe McNally
No matter how advanced your camera you still need to be responsible for getting it to the right place at the right time and pointing it in the right direction to get the photo you want.
Ken Rockwell
No place is boring, if you’ve had a good night’s sleep and have a pocket full of unexposed film.
Robert Adams
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
Ansel Adams
There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.
Ernst Haas
My life is shaped by the urgent need to wander and observe, and my camera is my passport.
Steve McCurry
