I heard of this Ansel Adams quote today:
"There's nothing worse than a sharp picture of a fuzzy concept".
Words of inspiration.
Any others you can share?

Classic I like and trying to implement - You don't take a photograph, you make it.

I don't have any quotes, but I like to invoke Mr. Adams' name when purists start giving someone grief about the use of Light Room or Photoshop to fix their images.  Ansel Adams spent HOURS in the dark room to fix his pictures yet not a single purist ever has anything bad to say about Adams' work.  I wish I had a tenth of his talent, both in seeing a shot and then fixing it.

"I am sure the next step will be the electronic image, and I hope I live to see it.  I trust that the creative eye will continue to function, whatever technological innovations may develop".

 

Here's another:

"Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter".

 

Ok...1 more

"The single most important component of a camera is the 12 inches behind it"
