Quotable Quotes - "When photographers say ..."

When photographers say…
I prefer to work in the black and white medium.
They actually mean…Man, I love the way I can rescue my bad exposures with a black and white conversion. Hopefully my burnt-out highlights and clipped shadows won’t be quite so obvious now

When photographers say…What I try to evoke through my photography is the feeling I experienced at the time of pressing the shutter.
They actually mean…I see stuff and then take pictures of it.

When photographers say…To be honest, my camera is just a tool
They actually mean…To be really honest, I don’t know what half the stuff on my DSLR does. There’s only one tool in this picture-taking partnership, and it’s not the camera…

When photographers say…I’m beginning to use my iPhone more and more
They actually mean…I’m starting to regret how much I’ve blown on lenses that I can’t face lugging around any longer.

When photographers say…Honestly, I can do 99% of my work with an f/4 lens – I can’t see any advantage in getting the f/2.8 version.
They actually mean…
I wish I could afford the faster, f/2.8 version.

When photographers say…I need a faster lens.
They actually mean…
I want a new toy.

When photographers say…
I miss film.
They actually mean…Everyone’s a photographer these days! And generally, they’re really good…

Seems we can run, but cannot hide.

I love the correlation in part two of #3. Many a truth spken in jest.
It's not what inspires us that is important, it's where the journey takes us.

Re: Quotable Quotes - "When photographers say ..."

LOL very good and as always there is some truth in the jest.

It reminds me of a quote I remember seeing years ago in my days of film and is even more appropriate in this digital age.

Everyone in the world owns a camera but the world is not full of photographers
Regards Paul.
One day I hope to be the person my dogs think I am.
