ציטוט

טרי מהיום:
...Finally, if you are shooting art for yourself you really only need one lens. Not an all purpose lens but a lens you can believe in. A lens that, when you look through it, makes everything look more exciting and more real. A lens that matches the vision in your heart. All the other lenses are bullshit. They make them so professional photographers can do stuff the way clients want it. Really. If you don't get paid to do this stuff just narrow down and narrow down until you find a lens that makes your vision sing and then sell the rest. You'll argue and you won't believe me but if you do it you'll be so much happier with your work five years from now. Honestly. It's the one thing I've learned chasing business and clients. You compromise your vision. One lens is all you need. In fact more lenses just cloud everything up.
The best fashion shooter I ever met just had one lens. It was a Hasselblad 150. The front element looked as though someone had put a cigarette out on it. She didn't own any other lens so she never had to think about which lens she would use or how she would work. She just did her work and it was stellar. No choices, just the right choice. No confusion just vision. Amazing. But now we're all so fearful we feel like we need to have "all of our bases covered" even when we're just doing this for fun. That's why it's not as much fun.

אולי זה לא נשמע מספיק נכון בעברית.

  1. צירוף מקרים ברמה קוסמית..בינך לבין קירק...ככל שעובר הזמן נראה לי שזה נכון: פחות זה בעצם יותר. אני רק חייב לרכוש 35ממ ( עבור ה-D80 )כדי להיות בטוח:-) אני חייב עדשת נורמל, שמישהו כאן יהיה נורמלי, לא ככה?

    1. הרעיון הוא לצמצם ואחר כך לצמצם עוד, עד שתגיע לאורך מוקד אחד בו תחוש בנוח. לאו דווקא נורמלי.
