“Your first 10,000 photographs will be the worst” -Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004)
The French photojournalist has mainly distinguished himself with his street photography, a vocation that makes him best able to know how much of a mistake is part of the lesson in photography. Exercise your artistic gaze by immortalizing as many scenes as you can. Why not challenge yourself to take one photo a day?
Émile Zola, Autoportraits
"In my opinion, you can't say you've seen something thoroughly if you haven't taken a photograph of it" -Émile Zola (1840-1902)
If we know him as a man of letters, the author of Germinal was passionate about photography. Through these inspired words, Émile Zola sheds light on the photographer's gaze and the refined perception of the world that those who observe him have behind their lens.
"The camera is a tool that teaches people to see without a camera" - Dorothea Lange (1895-1965)
The American photographer, a pioneer of social documentary photography and the originator of the iconic Migrant Mother image invites us to focus, to be attentive when pressing the shutter button. This attitude allows you to exercise your eye to better grasp the truth.

"If your photograph isn't good, you weren't close enough" - Robert Capa (1913-1954)
Perhaps more than the position of the subject, it is that of the photographer that sets the tone for the composition. Being a photographer also means staying in motion, approaching or stepping aside to convey emotion.
So imbued with the wise advice of these legendary photographers, you are now ready to take personal shots worthy of the greatest artists. Your favorite images can then brighten up your interior thanks to a print on photo paper in the finish of your choice in color version as in black and white print.
