Ansel Adams on the Art of Photography - NYIP Photo Snack

By NYIP Staff on October 8th, 2014

In this week’s NYIP photo snack, we examine the process of making a photo.

Ansel Adams said, “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”

We get so caught up in the camera as a tool that we forget the photographer is also an artist.

A photograph is so much more than the light that leaked into a lens.

It’s a moment in time that’s been captured by an eye with a specific point of view.

You’re not simply taking photos. You’re making them.

NYIP offers photography classes for photography enthusiasts of all levels. As one of the world's leading photography schools, NYIP has been educating photographers since 1910. Get started today!
