Think about the photo before and after, never during. The secret is to take your time. You mustn’t go too fast. The subject must forget about you. Then, however, you must be very quick.
- Henri Cartier-Bresson
One of my favorite photo quotes ever was from the wonderful Ruth Bernhard whom I had the privilege of hearing on three occasions.. When a student started to ask, “Where did you shoot…,” she stopped him mid-sentence and said, “Never say ‘shoot’ when talking about photography. Shooting is an act of violence, photography is an act of love!”
