Moon & Star Photography:

A photograph is neither taken nor seized by force. It offers itself up. It is the photo that takes you. One must not take photos. ~Henri Cartier-Bresson

Many pictures turn out to be limp translations of the known world instead of vital objects which create an intrinsic world of their own. There is a vast difference between taking a picture and making a photograph. ~Robert Heinecken

"Photography is still a very new medium and everything must be tried and dared... photography has no rules. It is not a sport. It is the result which counts, no matter how it is achieved." ~Bill Brandt

Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution. ~Ansel Adams

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

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. ~Man Ray

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

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

You don't take a photograph, you make it. ~Ansel Adams

Buying a camera doesn't make you a photographer. It makes you a camera owner. ~Pathfinder

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

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"

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

Those doing digital manipulation of their own photos deserve the respect to be viewed for whatever their final product is, not the process. ~Julie Rodriguez Jones

Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. ~Albert Einstein
