nothing is what it appears to be

Dinu Lazăr

Photography deals exquisitely with appearances, but nothing is what it appears to be. ~Duane Michals


his own particular photographic hell

Dinu Lazăr

"Should anyone want to go to his own particular photographic hell in his own particular way - manipulated, hybrid or whatnot - I say 'Go to it!' But go to it for all you are worth, the harder the better, insisting on your right of way without necessarily disregarding all traffic lights. And if you must disregard even these, I say go ahead full speed!'" Alfred Stieglitz.


it will be too late

Dinu Lazăr

During the work, you have to be sure that you haven't left any holes, that you've captured everything, because afterwards it will be too late.
Henri Cartier-Bresson


why

Dinu Lazăr

Of course, there will always be
those who look only at technique, who ask "how,"
while others of a more curious nature will ask "why."
Personally, I have always preferred
inspiration to information.
Man Ray


a disease

Dinu Lazăr

Once photography enters your bloodstream, it's like a disease. - Anonymous


Die for it

Dinu Lazăr

Die for it

Photography is taking an image from your mind and fixing it in tangible form. These images may be real or imagined, and the tangible form is usually a printed photo.

Anything that comes between your imagination and the final result needs to get out of the way. Cameras, lenses, HDR, profiles, focus, sharpness, pixels, etc. are all crap. They have nothing to do with photography. They just get in the way. When you master technique you can see straight from your imagination to the finished work. Then you are free to create great images.


it's wrong

Dinu Lazăr

it's wrong

My instinct about painting says, 'if you don't think about it, it's right.' As soon as you have to decide and choose, it's wrong. And the more you decide about, the more wrong it gets.
Andy Warhol


technical decisions

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


my early pictures

my early pictures

And most of my early pictures failed but about one in a 100 somehow looked better than what I saw.
Galen Rowell


absorbed in something

Dinu Lazăr

When I photograph, I always look for people who are absorbed in something.
