Photography "Attitudes"

HBm100    For Good images...
       Take many shots.
           Refocus often.
       Show only the best.     
       It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer.
You need less imagination to be a painter
because you can invent things.
But in photography everything is so ordinary;
 it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary.

David Bailey

A good photograph is knowing where to stand.     Ansel Adams
Every other artist begins with a blank canvas, a piece of paper; the photographer begins with the finished product.     Edward Steichen
We take language into our minds; we read words in the same internal voice with which we think, remember, pray.
But when we look at paintings or photographs, the reverse is true.   ...we move out of ourselves into the image, as though it were another world...
    Jayne Anne Phillips
