We look at the world and see what we have learned to believe is there. We have been conditioned to expect.... but, as photographers, we must learn to relax our beliefs.
A pro only means you shoot for pay. As an amateur, I learned from pros. As a pro, I continue to learn from amateurs.
Catherine Jo Morgan
It is very hard to say where you're going until you get there. That kind of thing is based very much on instinct. As a photographer, one of the most important lessons I have learnt is that you have to learn to listen to and trust your own instinct. It has helped to guide me - this far at least.
"World Press Photo 1996 Yearbook"
I learned from looking at his [
] work the places he loved the most, and where he spent the most time, was where he did his best work. I learned from him that you have to love what you photograph, and you have to give it time.
"Black & White Magazine for Collector of Fine Photography", February 2001, page: 114
Laymen learn to read photographs the way they do headlines, skipping over them quickly to get the gist of what is being said. Photographers, on the other hand, study them with the care and attention to detail one might give to a difficult scientific paper or a complicated poem.
