10 More Inspirational Photography Quotes

Few months back we had compiled a list of inspirational photography quotes by the famous photographers and this time we have an awesome collection of the wise sayings focusing more on the photography as an art of visualization. Photography as an art depends on the way you see the world around you and how you capture the shot; either to conceal the secret or to disclose the reality.

  1. To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.

    —Elliott Erwitt

  2. A good snapshot stops a moment from running away.

    —Eudora Welty

  3. A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.

    —Ansel Adams

  4. A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.

    —Diane Arbus

  5. In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.

    —Alfred Stieglitz

  6. Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited, and the wealth and confusion man has created. It is a major force in explaining man to man.

    —Edward Steichen

  7. There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.

    —Ansel Adams

  8. While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.

    —Dorothea Lange

  9. Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph.

    —Matt Hardy

  10. My last word is that it all depends on what you visualize.

    —Ansel Adams
