Digital photography and Photoshop have made it very eas

Digital photography and Photoshop have made it very easy for people to take pictures. It’s a medium that allows a lot of mediocre stuff to get through.
Edward Burtynsky
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
Ansel Adams
A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.
Annie Leibovitz
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
Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art.
Ansel Adams
Digital [photography] has sped up the process to a point that it’s a bit self-destructive. It is like driving by a new neighborhood without stopping for a walk. Special discoveries need time.
Mona Kuhn
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
I don’t like explosions. I don’t mind progress. But digital photography has made every man, woman, child and chimpanzee a photographer of sorts and consequently has numbed down the general quality of photographs.
Elliott Erwitt
I always thought of photography as a naughty thing to do – that was one of my favorite things about it, and when I first did it, I felt very perverse.
Diane Arbus
Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.
Dorothea Lange
You don’t take a photograph, you make it.
Ansel Adams
For example, Michael Mann’s film Collateral – there is certain kinds of stories that lend themselves to digital photography. Some things are very raw stories that digital photography kind of lends itself to.
Matthew Modine
All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth.
Richard Avedon
There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.
Ansel Adams
I never have taken a picture I’ve intended. They’re always better or worse.
Diane Arbus
Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.
Ansel Adams
Photography does not create eternity, as art does; it embalms time, rescuing it simply from its proper corruption.
Andre Bazin
The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion.
Richard Avedon
I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn’t photograph them.
Diane Arbus
A photograph is usually looked at – seldom looked into.
Ansel Adams
It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.
Paul Caponigro
I don’t think that digital photography is romantic yet. It’s not sympathetic the way that film is.
Matthew Modine
One should really use the camera as though tomorrow you’d be stricken blind.
Dorothea Lange
I’m not against digital photography. It’s great for newspapers. And there are photographers doing great work digitally. When they use Photoshop as a darkroom tool, that’s fine, too. But at this point of my life, after so many years, I don’t really want to change, and I still love film.
Mary Ellen Mark
