"It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary." (David Bailey)
But then again, what is extraordinary is surely subjective: who decides when you've learned to 'see'?
I came across this quote the other day and thought it was interesting enough to share. I've always said that one of the main reasons I enjoy photography so much is the challenge of finding the extra in the ordinary. Whether or not I succeed... well, that's up to you to decide!
Andybro: I'm sure you'll have something to contribute to this matter? ;)
