“The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”
That’s why I love to shoot with a GoPro , you can’t see what you are photographing, you have to use your imagination, it’s through your eyes, not your lens.
And that works perfectly with my way of photographing, I always make a story about my photo shoots, I plan them for months, sometimes years in my head.
You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.
