Insightful Quotes By Great Photographers:
Whether you are just a starter or a professional photographer, you will always love these photography quotes said by great photographers like Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, and Diane Arbus etc. These are the master of the photography. Every photographer is supposed to know about them and their art. Enjoy these great quotes with my interpretation which help you to clear your mind.
1. Respect Your Subject:
It gives the real meaning to the photo. Every photographer is supposed to respect the space of its subject. The more you can connect to your subject, the more you are able to create great photos. Next time, you move in to your subject, don’t poke your camera into the face of your subject.
2. Get Closer To Your Subject:
Well this quote is very deep. The more you get closer to your subject, the more you capture the real emotions. You are engrossed with your subject or theme. Mounting a zoom lens can create nice defocused/blurred background but it loses the feel around the subject as it makes you to be away from your subject. Next time, give yourself a thought before making photos as per your requirements.
3. Balance Your Theme And Subject:
Work on your subject and theme. If you truly love or hate your theme, you must have in depth idea about it. You have been thinking about it for so long that you really make a story out of it.
4. Camera Is Your Best Tool:
Andre Kertesz has produced great artistic images. Every photographer must see his work. Camera is just a tool or medium for a photographer to show meaning in the stuff which we see around us in daily life. It is always said that everything exists for a reason. Pick up your tool and reveal the reason behind everything which you capture.
5. Put Your Emotions:
A artist puts all his emotions or lessons into its work. These emotions and lessons are built up little by little. The way you learn to see the life, the kind of books you read and augment your knowledge, the inspiration you seek from other photographers and soothe yourself by listening music of your choice. These things help to think, create and execute!
6. Photographer Is The Real Instrument:
It is not the camera which creates the magic, it is the person behind the camera. It does not matter what kind of a gadget a photographer possesses. The most important instrument is the photographer which creates the images. If you have small digital camera or a cropped DSLR, don’t get disappointed! Go and capture what attracts you!

Light is most important factor to make stunning images. You must learn to expose your images with light. All the great photographers know how to get correct exposure at what time and which place. You learn it by making photos day in and day out. Keep photographing and have a strong eye over the exposure in your camera.
8. Have Patience:
The great photos are made with the skill of patience. You can’t anticipate the moment. You have to be keen observer and keep an eye over your subject. You never know what candid moment is going to take place. You have to constantly wait for right moment and expose it!
9. Find Yourself In Your Work:
Camera is a fantastic tool to show your emotions. A photographer documents himself in every image he/she creates. You must understand yourself first. What kind of person you are? What attracts you? You express yourself in every photograph.
10. Love What You Do, Do What You love:
Art is hard. You must clear the trash of your mind. Being a photographer, you can choose not to fall into too much technicalities of the camera. Learn the basics and fall in love with the art of photography. Unless you love what you do, you will get bored or frustrated easily. Once you love what you do, you are no more a chair-warmer or a clock watcher. You keep thinking about it all the time which leads you to the passion of creation.
