Taking Pictures Or Making Pictures: What’s the Difference?

The words we choose are important and they can change our attitude when it comes to our photography.

If you’ve  got a dictionary handy, look up  the definitions for  “take” and “make”.

Many  photographers say  that  they “take” pictures

An editor I worked in the past repeatedly  took the time to suggest that I start saying, and  more importantly  thinking,  that I “make” pictures.

He was right. Making pictures versus taking pictures produces a totally different mind-set when it  comes  to my  work.

Do you take pictures or do you make pictures?

Don’t take  pictures, make pictures!
