Photographs

For your consideration, thoughts from the studio.

“There are no bad pictures; that’s just how your face looks sometimes.”
– Abraham Lincoln

“There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.”

“To know ahead of time what you’re looking for means you’re then only photographing your own preconceptions, which is very limiting, and often false.”

— Elliott Erwitt

“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

“Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”
– Henri Cartier-Bresson

“Of course, there will always be those who look only at technique, who ask ‘how’, while others of a more curious nature will ask ‘why’. Personally, I have always preferred inspiration to information.”

“The more pictures you see, the better you are as a photographer.”
– Robert Mapplethorpe

“Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph, or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.”

– Joe McNally
