Inspirational Photography Quotes – Light

Summer Snow

  1. “What makes photography a strange invention is that its primary raw materials are light and time.” – John Berger
  2. “Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.” – George Eastman
  3. “You have to get away from relying only on the subject. Light is the imagination’s main tool. It is something you work with in defining anything you want to, whether subject or landscape.” – David Muench
  4. “My first thought is always of light.” – Galen Rowell
  5. “A painter works with color as the medium, a photographer works with light.” – Carlotta M. Corpron
  6. “Photograph: a picture painted by the sun without instruction in art.” – Ambrose Bierce
  7. “It is light that reveals, light that obscures, light that communicates. It is light I “listen” to. The light late in the day has a distinct quality, as it fades toward the darkness of evening. After sunset there is a gentle leaving of the light, the air begins to still, and a quiet descends. I see magic in the quiet light of dusk. I feel quiet, yet intense energy in the natural elements of our habitat. A sense of magic prevails. A sense of mystery. It is a time for contemplation, for listening – a time for making photographs.” – John Sexton
