I actually had the idea to make this post when I saw EvanK's signature which has a quote from Ansel Adams that reads like this: "There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs"

So the point of this is to post any photography related quotes/phrases that might be interesting, inspiring, funny, etc. I really don't know where to start, I'll leave that to you.

I hope we can get some good stuff here :)

Equipment related:

a quote from a random comment about a super worn out Leica.

"The point is that your equipment is a series of tools that are meant to be used and used with great passion, not symbols of your wealth or status to parade around."

Not a very active topic sadly, but I'm grateful that the few quotes are actually very good. Keep 'em coming, please! :)

Some of my favorites:

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
- Elliott Erwitt

“If your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough.”
- Robert Capa

“[...] the camera need not be a cold mechanical device. Like the pen, it is as good as the man who uses it. It can be the extension of mind and heart.”
- John Steinbeck

"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."
- Unknown

"The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it."
- Ansel Adams

"[...] photography is a moment of embarrassment and a lifetime of pleasure."
- Tony Benn

“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


- Bjorn
