Blog

Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.

Quick Quotes: The Difficulty In Making A Good Photograph

I often offer photography related quotes as part of this blog, which I have always labeled "Quick Quotes".  For the first time, I thought I would put together a themed version of "Quick Quotes".  Today's theme: the difficulty in making a quality photograph.

"Lazy vision can't be recovered in Photoshop.  There is no Un-Suck filter."

David DuChemin

"Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst."

Henri Cartier-Bresson

"If I knew how to take a good photograph, I'd do it every time"

Robert Doisneau

"It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer.  You need less imagination to be a good painter because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary."

David Bailey

And thus I start the new year hoping to be able to 'see' and take just a few good photos.

Happy New Year to all!
