Best Photography Quotes A to Y

All photographs are there to remind us of what we forget.  In this – as in other ways – they are the opposite of paintings.  Paintings record what the painter remembers.  Because each one of us forgets different things, a photo more than a painting may change its meaning according to who is looking at it.
John Berger Quotes

A picture is worth a thousand words; a slide show is both.
Author Unknown Quotes

A Ming vase can be well-designed and well-made and is beautiful for that reason alone.  I don’t think this can be true for photography.  Unless there is something a little incomplete and a little strange, it will simply look like a copy of something pretty.  We won’t take an interest in it.
John Loengard, “Pictures Under Discussion” Quotes

A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense, and is, thereby, a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety.
Ansel Adams Quotes

All photos are accurate.  None of them is the truth.
Richard Avedon Quotes

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 Quotes

A good snapshot stops a moment from running away.
Eudora Welty Quotes

A photograph is usually looked at – seldom looked into.
Ansel Adams Quotes

Buying a Nikon doesn’t make you a photographer.  It makes you a Nikon owner.
Author Unknown Quotes

Dodging and burning are steps to take care of mistakes God made in establishing tonal relationships.
Ansel Adams Quotes

Every time someone tells me how sharp my photos are, I assume that it isn’t a very interesting photograph.  If it were, they would have more to say.
Author Unknown Quotes

Everyone has a photographic memory, but not everyone has film.
Author Unknown Quotes

Fear is a darkroom where negatives develop.
Usman B. Asif Quotes

It’s weird that photographers spend years or even a whole lifetime, trying to capture moments that added together, don’t even amount to a couple of hours.
James Lalropui Keivom Quotes

I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it.
Author Unknown Quotes

I think the best pictures are often on the edges of any situation, I don’t find photographing the situation nearly as interesting as photographing the edges.
William Albert Allard, “The Photographic Essay” Quotes

I hate cameras.  They are so much more sure than I am about everything.
John Steinbeck Quotes

I never question what to do, it tells me what to do.  The photographs make themselves with my help.
Ruth Bernhard Quotes

It pleases me to take amateur photographs of my garden, and it pleases my garden to make my photographs look professional.
Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com Quotes

I just think it’s important to be direct and honest with people about why you’re photographing them and what you’re doing.  After all, you are taking some of their soul.
Mary Ellen Mark Quotes

I’m not a particularly verbose person.  I think that’s why I like taking pictures… they speak for themselves.
Jeb Dickerson, Quotes

If I could tell the story in words, I wouldn’t need to lug around a camera.
Lewis Hine Quotes

I didn’t want to tell the tree or weed what it was.  I wanted it to tell me something and through me express its meaning in nature.
Wynn Bullock Quotes

Most things in life are moments of pleasure and a lifetime of embarrassment; photography is a moment of embarrassment and a lifetime of pleasure.
Tony Benn Quotes

My portraits are more about me than they are about the people I photograph.
Richard Avedon Quotes

No photographer is as good as the simplest camera.
Edward Steichen Quotes

No place is boring, if you’ve had a good night’s sleep and have a pocket full of unexposed film.
Robert Adams, Darkroom & Creative Camera Techniques, May 1995 Quotes

One photo out of focus is a mistake, ten photo out of focus are an experimentation, one hundred photo out of focus are a style.
Author Unknown Quotes

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 Quotes

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 Quotes

Photograph:  a picture painted by the sun without instruction in art.
Ambrose Bierce Quotes

Photographs that transcend but do not deny their literal situation appeal to me.
Sam Abbel Quotes

Photography deals exquisitely with appearances, but nothing is what it appears to be.
Duane Michals Quotes

Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created.  It is a major force in explaining man to man.
Edward Steichen Quotes

Perishability in a photograph is important in a picture.  If a photograph looks perishable we say, “Gee, I’m glad I have that moment.”
John Loengard, “Pictures Under Discussion” Quotes

Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.
Ansel Adams Quotes

The photograph itself doesn’t interest me.  I want only to capture a minute part of reality.
Henri Cartier Bresson Quotes

The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.
Henri Cartier Bresson Quotes

The negative is the equivalent of the composer’s score, and the print the performance.
Ansel Adams  Quotes

The departure of our boys to foreign parts with the ever-present possibility that they might never return, taught the real value of photography to every father and mother.  To many a mother the photograph of her boy in his country’s uniform was the one never-failing consolation.
Louis Fabian Bachrach Quotes

The goal is not to change your subjects, but for the subject to change the photographer.
Author Unknown Quotes

There will be times when you will be in the field without a camera.  And, you will see the most glorious sunset or the most beautiful scene that you have ever witnessed.  Don’t be bitter because you can’t record it.  Sit down, drink it in, and enjoy it for what it is!
DeGriff Quotes

The camera cannot lie, but it can be an accessory to untruth.
Harold Evans, “Pictures on a Page” Quotes

There are always two people in every picture:  the photographer and the viewer.
Ansel Adams Quotes

The world just does not fit conveniently into the format of a 35mm camera.
W. Eugene Smith Quotes

The camera can photograph thought.
Dirk Bogarde Quotes

There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.
Ansel Adams Quotes

When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes.  But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!
Ted Grant Quotes

While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.
Dorothea Lange Quotes

When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs.  When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
Ansel Adams Quotes

You don’t take a photograph.  You ask, quietly, to borrow it.
Author Unknown Quotes

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