“You don’t take a photograph. You ask quietly to borrow it”


PetaPixel picked up on a compilation of quotes put together by photographer Tammy Lamoureux and originally posted on the Curated Quotes website. Artists of any form need new and continuous inspiration to draw out their best work.

With the a7s Sony have chosen the opposite strategy to Nikon – who released a modest boost on the D4 with their D4s- by completely re-working, rather than just tweaking, the earlier generation.
