it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do
with the way you see them.”
Image and words by Elliott Erwitt
“It’s one thing to make a
picture of what a person
looks like, it’s another
thing to make a portrait
of who they are.”

in the camera but on
either side of it.”

“Taking pictures is
savouring life intensely,
every hundredth of a
second.”

the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the
books you have read, the music you have heard, the people
you have loved.”
!
Image and words by Ansel Adams
“Don’t shoot what it looks like.
!
Shoot what it feels like.”
