Photography is all about secrets. The secrets we all have and will never tell.
Whatever she saw beyond the camera lens, beyond the photographer, beyond anything in the known world probably - wasn't fit to be seen.
His eyes were polite yet maleficent, as though he was making an effort to be civil to the photographer while plotting to murder his wife.
George Lucas wanted this moving camera for all of the photography in Star Wars. He was willing to take a risk with the concepts that I advanced with regard to ways for doing that.
For me the printing process is part of the magic of photography. It's that magic that can be exciting, disappointing, rewarding and frustrating all in the same few moments in the darkroom.
I thought it was pretty bad, ... I don't know how people can come in and do that, photographers and stuff. I just thought I got a bad rap on it 'cause they don't photograph everybody and throw them out in front of the public.
The use of the term art medium is, to say the least, misleading, for it is the artist that creates a work of art not the medium. It is the artist in photography that gives form to content by a distillation of ideas, thought, experience, insight and understanding.
My approach to photography is through the ability to have a rapport with people.
Ideally, early in the planning stages, before reporters and photographers are assigned to a story, we like to be involved at that point, to make sure the content gathering keeps our needs in mind. If we don't find out about it until the night before, we're often not able to produce an interactive graphic.
Naive or commercial or merely utilitarian photography is no different in kind from photography as practiced by the most gifted professionals,
I thought it was astounding that a woman was censured for wanting to just take up photography. I thought, my, how the world has changed.
As I have practiced it, photography produces pleasure by simplicity. I see something special and show it to the camera. A picture is produced. The moment is held until someone sees it. Then it is theirs.
For many 19th-century artists, the usual reaction to photography was no reaction at all. They simply ignored it. But not Degas. He was deeply interested in the new medium, not just as a tool that could help with his drawings and paintings, but as an art form in its own right.
Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer or a writer without worrying about keeping their day job in order to have health insurance.
I just love the world of photography.
That's true, because I'm a photographer now.
Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph, or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.
You can do a lot more creative things now that we have digital photography, but I think the average person doesn't keep up with their photos the way that they used to.
I was interested in photography when I started college at Antioch. I took a basic photo course there, and other photography classes. I got my first real job through a work-study program at Antioch. It was working as a helper in a mental hospital. Strange, but I'm sure that had something to do with where I am now.
Actually, when I first started dabbling in photography, I was still working for my parents as a salesman.
I have often thought that if photography were difficult in the true sense of the term -- meaning that the creation of a simple photograph would entail as much time and effort as the production of a good watercolor or etching -- there would be a vast improvement in total output. The sheer ease with which we can produce a superficial image often leads to creative disaster.
Sometimes they are a matter of luck; the photographer could not expect or hope for them. Sometimes they are a matter of patience, waiting for an effect to be repeated that he has seen and lost or for one that he anticipates.
Everyone wants to see the real Africa before it is all gone - nature lovers, photographers, adventurers but travel is getting so costly, few people can afford such a trip. Thats why we decided to sweeten the deal by adding international airfare. Now we have something nobody can resist. A real winner.
You do your work as a photographer and everything becomes past. Words are more like thoughts; the photographer's picture is always surrounded by a kind of romantic glamor - no matter what you do, and how you twist it.
Visual ideas combined with technology combined with personal interpretation equals photography. Each must hold it's own; if it doesn't, the thing collapses.
My job as a portrait photographer is to seduce, amuse and entertain.
My job is to make sure it does not become spring break out there. I can let you in, but I can't let your other five friends in. It's not based on age or looks. There's an amazing group of people from all forms of business, whether it's entertainment or music or great photographers, great art directors, great publishers, amazing businessmen and women, and it's a great mix in age. You want to maintain that glamour and classiness. It's an overall blend.
Maybe I'll paint, do photography, just something else. I can see that.
Congressional investigations are for the benefit of photographers.
Then I thought I was going to be a photographer. I tried a hand at darkroom technician. I played in a band. It took me quite some time to discover that I wanted to write.
I have mixed feelings about those sorts of things. When I see it done by interesting young people, I think it's very valid. But when established photographers, people in their forties, copy me and get a lot of money, well, I find that to be very stupid.
Multimedia is its own entity. It takes the best out of documentary radio and the best out of documentary photography. Television doesn't have the time to tell a long narrative. Newspapers don't have space anymore to run 60-inch stories, or more than one or two photos with a story. Flash allows us to bring all that back together and tell a story with more depth than in any other medium.
Photography started as a means of getting reference material for my paintings of nature subjects.
Photography helps people to see.
There was no money for a set photographer.
The more pictures you see, the better you are as a photographer.
I guess that's what I was: a set of abs. And they lit the abs and shot the abs and sent the abs on their way. The photographer didn't look at my face once. I was humiliated.
A magazine was going to publish a lie that I was rude to a photographer. I cried I was really upset. They wanted me to be a bitch.
Diane Arbus changed the face of photography with her powerful and moving photographs which captured 1950s and 1960s America. She has had a profound influence on photographers ever since and on the way we look at our fellow human beings. This is a long overdue retrospective which shows her work is as compelling as ever.
Photography to me is catching a moment which is passing, and which is true.
I became involved in photography when I was about thirteen years old.
Fox's group faced a dilemma If you try to make history, and only the print media show up, will anyone hear about it Obviously, this is postmodern, ... We're going to have two events. We'll do it first for the photographers, then again for the TV people.
Queenstown is such a hub of outdoor adventure activity in peak season, ... It offers spectacular scenery for the photographer, awesome hiking trails, cosmopolitan restaurants and cafes, and a large variety of accommodations to suit all budgets.
Photography, alone of the arts, seems perfected to serve the desire humans have for a moment - this very moment - to stay.
And only the photographer himself knows the effect he wants. He should know by instinct, grounded in experience, what subjects are enhanced by hard or soft, light or dark treatment.
Generally, the French highly promote culture and the arts, and photography is in their blood.
The most refined skills of color printing, the intricate techniques of wide-angle photography, provide us pictures of trivia bigger and more real than life. We forget that we see trivia and notice only that the reproduction is so good. Man fulfils his dream and by photographic magic produces a precise image of the Grand Canyon. The result is not that he adores nature or beauty the more. Instead he adores his camera -- and himself.
Photography is an immediate reaction, drawing is a meditation.
The mission of photography is to explain man to man and each to himself. And that is the most complicated thing on earth.
I have very interesting hobbies like archeology and photography.
