Camera And Photography Quotes by Ansel Adams, Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Ken Rockwell, Eve Arnold, Dorothea Lange and many others.
You don’t make a photograph just with a camera
If your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough.
There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.
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.
Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.
The camera’s only job is to get out of the way of making photographs.
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.
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.
You don’t take a photograph, you make it.
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.
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.
DonвЂ™t pack up your camera until youвЂ™ve left the location.
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.
No place is boring, if you’ve had a good night’s sleep and have a pocket full of unexposed film.
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.
My life is shaped by the urgent need to wander and observe, and my camera is my passport.
