It is not important if photographs are good. It’s important that they are interesting.

Fantastic essay by the legendary John Loengard as a guest post at Scott Kelky”s blog. Really full of insights of great value to photographers and editors.

Before I became a picture editor, I assumed that “good photographers” took “good pictures” because they had a special eye. What I found was that good photographers take good pictures because they take great pains to have good subjects in front of their cameras. (source)
