in front of the camera

"At our best and most fortunate we make pictures because of what stands in front of the camera, to honor what is greater and more interesting than we are."

--"Why People Photograph" by Robert Adams.



Is this true? Do we think our subjects are more interesting then ourselves? Something to think about.

I definitely believe it's true when your subject is nature. I also think as photographers we are trying to express and share how we feel about the beauty that's in front of us without using words, instead showing it through our images.

happy weekend!
