    Default Words of Wisdoms, from Great Masters

    What is the most inspiring word that you'd heard of in all your years of photography that spurred you on and on?

    Hopefully mods make it a sticky so that all new guys will be motivated.

    For me:

    "Remember, you are using a SLR camera. What sets you and others aside is the 'special something' that you can see and capture that others don't. If plain snapshots are all you can do, I can do it better with an idiot camera."
    "Wonders of the Human Mind. Unfathomable to the highest degree."

    What pushed me to continously improve and seek new heights of myself? When someone tells me my shots are lousy.

    Default Shoot in soul and be connected

    The self has always been misbehaving. Images are captured when photographers mis-behaved selfishly such as being inconsiderate etc...during shooting session.

    The world will be a better and nicer place if the millions of photographers learn to live and shoot in soul. For whenever soul is present no matter what the photographer is doing, whom he's with, where he is will somehow evokes his emotion of the loving kindness without him thinking about it.

    He is totally absorted in the place or person or event without ego and without judgment.

    This is when the state of maturity begins and photographers see that connection is necessary for survival:

    "Isolation is our most injurious state for there is no life without
    relationship and connection".

    "If you've not tried chilli, how do you know the chilli is hot?" I always live along those lines whether photography or work.
