“Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.” – Peter Adams

If you want to be a successful photographer, worry about being you – not being new. The younger you are, the more prone you are to want to do something “out of the box.” It’s natural. You get that advice from all the big shots. But it’s not really possible for newbies. Not yet anyway. There’s this notion of time. You have to put in the time. You cannot cheat time. It is constant. It is demanding. It is unyielding. It is the same for everyone. You have to put in the time. You have to do the work first. But I digress. Let’s discuss doing something “new.”

“Your photography is a record of your living,
 for anyone who really sees.” — Paul Strand
"It's very difficult to judge your own art. But that's okay - it's not your job to have an opinion about everything - including your own art. Just create your brains out and let humanity (and history) judge the value of your efforts - it's actually none of your business." Paraphrased from meditations by Marcus Aurelius
George Eastman said... "Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography." An interesting quote given the state of photography today, and the over-the-top pursuit of cameras with good low-light capability.
