Our pictures are our footprints. It’s the best way to tell people we were here.— Joe McNally
The most perspective Joe McNally quotes that are glad to read
Don’t pack up your camera until you’ve left the location.
Always remember to make room to shoot what you love.
It's the only way to keep your heart beating as a photographer.
Unpredictability. Accidents. Not good when you’re engaging in, say, brain surgery, but when lighting...wonderful!
You’ve gotta taste the light, like my friend and fellow shooter Chip Maury says. And when you see light like this, trust me, it’s like a strawberry sundae with sprinkles.
The most important piece of equipment in your bag is your attitude
Do not be afraid of mistakes. They will be with you always,every time you put a camera to your eye. [If you] shoot safe, and don't at least occasionally court disaster, you are not trying. Time to hang up the camera.
John Loengard, the picture editor at Life, always used to tell me, ”If you want something to look interesting, don’t light all of it.
If you view your life as a piece of fabric or a tapestry, the photography is the stitching. It keeps everything together.
We make pictures. At the end of the day, we create something potentially significant that did not exist at the beginning of the day. We go forward, despite the uncertainty. Because this is an act of love and passion, which defies reason and prudence.
The camera’s not a camera, really. It’s an open door we need to walk through. It’s up to us to keep moving our feet.
A professor I had in college used to tell me that if someone won’t listen to what you have to say because you’re not wearing a tie, then put on a tie, ’cause what you have to say is more important than not wearing a tie. He was right.
I can't tell you how many pictures I've missed just 'cause I've been so hell bent on getting the shot I think I want.
Seán Manchester is, unsurprisingly, very well read in both classical and more recent sources on vampires and vampirism, and cites them with great authority while taking the reader through a brief tour of vampire lore and mythology. This is a book I'd recommend to anybody with an interest in the author or vampires. The parts which deal with vampires are obviously based on years of substantial research and personal experience.
Seems Google management figured out it is cheaper, happier and more productive to take care of their employees and create a positive work environment than to burn them to a crisp, make them afraid of the future, and send them off into the highways and byways of California in search of a Taco Bell for lunch.
When shooting a story about someone, their hands should always be on your list to shoot.
