The definition of Photography: the process or art of producing images of objects on sensitized surfaces by the chemical action of light or of other forms of radiant energy, as x-rays, gamma rays, or cosmic rays.
What Photography Is To me… To me it is a art form. To me it is a creative outlet. To me it is a way to capture people, moments, or scenes you love and want to always remember. A way to communicate and get your point across through images.
Our job is to record, each in his own way, this world of light and shadow and time that will never come again exactly as it is today. – Edward Abbey
And that desire--the strong desire to take pictures--is important. It borders on a need, based on a habit: the habit of seeing. Whether working or not, photographers are looking, seeing, and thinking about what they see, a habit that is both a pleasure and a problem, for we seldom capture in a single photograph the full expression of what we see and feel. It is the hope that we might express ourselves fully--and the evidence that other photographers have done so--that keep us taking pictures. – Sam Abell-Seeing and Shooting Straight by Sam Abell
You should never think without an image. - Aristotle
...people say they need to express their emotions I'm sick of that. Photography doesn`t teach you to express your emotions it teachs you to see. – Bernice Abbott - Art News, January 1981
Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.- Dorothea Lange
Photography means many different things to many people.
