The photographer has almost as much control over his subject matter as a painter. He can control light and shade, form and space, pattern and texture, motion and mood, everything except composition. - Andreas Feininger, The Best of Popular Photography by Harvey V. Fondiller , ISBN: 0871650371 , Page: 71
 
Consulting the rules of composition before taking a photograph is like consulting the laws of gravity before going for a walk. - Edward Weston
 
Photography is all about light, composition and, most importantly, emotion. - Larry Wilder
 
There is no better time to crop a bad composition than just before you press the shutter release. - Bryan Peterson - From the book: "Learning to See Creatively: Design, Color & Composition in Photography"
