many photographers try

many photographers try

Too many photographers try too hard. They try to lift photography into the realm of Art, because they have an inferiority complex about their Craft. You and I would see more interesting photography if they would stop worrying, and instead, apply horse-sense to the problem of recording the look and feel of their own era.
* Jessie Tarbox Beals


All photos are accurate

Dinu Lazăr

All photos are accurate. None of them is the truth. Richard Avedon


the human soul

Dinu Lazăr

The human body is the best picture of the human soul.
* Ludwig Wittgenstein


creating great images

Dinu Lazăr

creating great images

Your equipment DOES NOT affect the quality of your image. The less time and effort you spend worrying about your equipment the more time and effort you can spend creating great images. The right equipment just makes it easier, faster or more convenient for you to get the results you need.
Ken Rockwell, Your Camera Does Not Matter, 2005


catching a moment

Dinu Lazăr

"Photography to me is catching a moment which is passing, and which is true."

Jacques-Henri Lartigue


to the right place at the right time

Dinu Lazăr

No matter how advanced your camera you still need to be responsible for getting it to the right place at the right time and pointing it in the right direction to get the photo you want.
Ken Rockwell, Your Camera Does Not Matter, 2005


you have to SEE

Dinu Lazăr

The camera doesn't make a bit of difference. All of them can record what you are seeing. But, you have to SEE.
Ernst Haas, Comment in workshop, 1985


snatched from eternity

Dinu Lazăr

A hundredth of a second here, a hundredth of a second there--even if you put them end to end, they still only add up to one, two, perhaps three seconds, snatched from eternity. - Robert Doisneau

The goal

Dinu Lazăr

"The goal is not to change your subjects, but for the subject to change the photographer." - Author Unknown


the reverse is true

Dinu Lazăr

We take language into our minds; we read words in the same internal voice with which we think, remember, pray. But when we look at paintings or photographs, the reverse is true. If the image corresponds to our most intensely personal, yet archetypal, yearnings and memories, we don't take the image in, we move out of ourselves into the image, as though it were another world, a hologram whose forms of light are ghostly angels, or a dream whose physical reality is suggested by what we see on the surface of a canvas or a page.
