That's it

Well, I'm not going to get into that. I think those kind of distinctions and lists of titles like 'street photographer' are so stupid. I'm a photographer, a still photographer. That's it.

--Garry Winogrand

The photograph should be more interesting than what was photographed.

You have a lifetime to learn technique. But I can teach you what is more important than technique, how to see; learn that and all you have to do afterwards is press the shutter.
