Capture Quotations

Photography is like a moment, an instant. You need a half-second to get the photo. So it's good to capture people when they are themselves.
Patrick Demarchelier

To me, the magic of photography, per se, is that you can capture an instant of a second that couldn't exist before and couldn't exist after. It's almost like a cowboy that draws his gun. You draw a second before or after, you miss and you're dead - not them. To me, photography's always like that.
Mario Testino

Your feelings so are important to write down, to capture, and to remember because today you're heartbroken, but tomorrow you'll be in love again.
Taylor Swift

While natural disasters capture headlines and national attention short-term, the work of recovery and rebuilding is long-term.
Sylvia Mathews Burwell

In some ways, I feel like the strength of animation is in its simplicity and caricature, and in reduction. It's like an Al Hirschfeld caricature, where he'll use, like, three lines, and he'll capture the likeness of someone so strongly that it looks more like them than a photograph. I think animation has that same power of reduction.
Pete Docter
