Andreas Feininger Quote

Andreas Feininger (French, b. 1905 - d. 1999), said "Photographers — idiots, of which there are so many — say, “Oh, if only I had a Nikon or a Leica, I could make great photographs.” That’s the dumbest thing I ever heard in my life. It’s nothing but a matter of seeing, thinking, and interest. That’s what makes a good photograph. And then rejecting anything that would be bad for the picture. The wrong light, the wrong background, time and so on. Just don’t do it, not matter how beautiful the subject is."

I thought this quote was worth its own space here at my photo blog - makes enough sense to me.

Happy Shooting with whatever equipment you have - the photograph results are all in your head - there's something to think about...
