a farmer

Dinu Lazăr

A photographer without a magazine behind him is like a farmer without fields.
Norman Parkinson


Look and think

Dinu Lazăr

Look and think before opening the shutter. The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera. Yousuf Karsh


keepers

Dinu Lazăr

If an image lacks the right fundamentals of composition, light, form and color, don't even bother to press the shutter. That's why large format images have a larger percentage of "keepers:" we don't bother completing the lengthy large-format photographic process if we know the result is going to suck. With digital, people snap away with reckless disregard for the basics, which never can be replaced in Photoshop. Great photos have to happen in-camera; Photoshop merely fine-tunes. Ken Rockwell


buying a piano

Dinu Lazăr

People know buying a piano won't make them pianists, so why do people buy cameras and think that great results just happen? (Answer: because camera makers have been profiting by fueling this rumor since the 1800s.)

Ken Rockwell


A portrait

Dinu Lazăr

A portrait is not a likeness. The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth. Richard Avedon


a masterpiece

Dinu Lazăr

This is what makes a masterpiece. Of course we all have different tastes in everything, but the difference between a great photo and a masterpiece is that a masterpiece creates it's own reality for the viewer. If it takes you away, it's fantastic.Ken Rockwell


a camera has to be second nature to you

Dinu Lazăr

"If you want to make good photographs, a camera has to be second nature to you. Devoting too much attention to technical decisions can interfere with your creative processes"

Robert Farber


the gospel

Dinu Lazăr

God writes the gospel not in the Bible alone, but on trees and flowers and clouds and stars. ~Martin Luther


out of time

Dinu Lazăr

Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still. Dorothea Lange


a minute part of reality

Dinu Lazăr

The photograph itself doesn't interest me. I want only to capture a minute part of reality. ~Henri Cartier Bresson
