Quotes by Ansel Adams

“Not taking photos is refusing to simply press the shutter button because we have seen something.

Making a photo is a matter of attitude, being constructive in front of all pictures.

We must choose our framing, choose our exposure, choose our depth of field, choose exact moment.

This way, I will build my own photo rather than taking what appeared there. And, any photograph can have such an aim for quality.”  Ansel Adams

“There is no photograph to be taken, there are only photographs to be built.”   Ansel Adams

“In my mind’s eye, I visualize how a particular… sight and feeling will appear on a print.

If it excites me, there is a good chance it will make a good photograph.

It is an intuitive sense, an ability that comes from a lot of practice.”   Ansel Adams

“No man has the right to dictate what other men should perceive, create or produce, but all should be encouraged to reveal themselves, their perceptions and emotions, and to build confidence in the creative spirit.”  Ansel Adams
