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: Jay Maisel

I was listening to Michael Reichmann interview Jay Maisel in the latest issue of the absolutely superb Luminous Landscape Video Journal (if you have never seen an issue of the video journal, you owe it to yourself to have a look.....see here) and really enjoyed what they had to say. Lots of words of wisdom from Mr. Maisel. Two that struck me are:

"People are more interested in the quality of their pixels than they are in the quality of their picture"

Jay Maisel

When discussing marked digital image manipulation after capture:

"I am not at all interested in showing how clever I am once I take the picture. My cleverness, if it exists at all, is in seeing something that's there and showing it to you"

Jay Maisel
