anytime I go anywhere with a camera

Dinu Lazăr

“…anytime I go anywhere with a camera, whether it be my top-of-the-line pro body with fifteen lenses and smart flash or a simple point-and-shoot, I might take the best photograph of my life. If, however, I trapped myself into believing that success of my style would only come through in the grainless technical perfection of a cumbersome larger format or the heady fine art of a preconceptualized composition, then I would lose much of the magic that drew me to photography in the first place.” Galen Rowell.


just look at your screen

Dinu Lazăr

If you want to learn to take pictures, forget following gurus or thinking you can't.

Just pick up your camera, play around, and see what happens. It helps if you have a deeper understanding of what's going on, but even if you don't, play around and that's how you learn. With film, I take notes of what I touched so I know what I did when I see the results. With digital, just look at your screen. That's how I learn everything.

Ken Rockwell

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
