Quote of the Day
There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.
Pick up a camera. Shoot something. No matter how small, no matter how cheesy, no matter whether your friends and your sister star in it. Put your name on it as director. Now you're a director. Everything after that you're just negotiating your budget and your fee.
I hate cameras. I hate cameras and I hate camera phones. The camera's my worst enemy and my best friend. It's the way I convey my emotions to the world without saying a word, so I use it. People always say, 'You come alive as soon as the camera's on!'
When I was a kid, there was no collaboration; it's you with a camera bossing your friends around. But as an adult, filmmaking is all about appreciating the talents of the people you surround yourself with and knowing you could never have made any of these films by yourself.
There are two industry secrets to surviving a long day on camera on the red carpet: First, no drinking the night before - ever. You can celebrate after with some bubbly. Second is make sure to use shoe insoles. I don't care if you are a guy or a girl, dress shoes are painful. Worth it, but painful.
I'm not an artist. I set the camera up and tell my story.
With modeling, you pose. You want to look your best all the time. With acting, you have to be aware of the camera, but the more you show your imperfections, the better you're going to be.
When you are a photographer, you work all the time, because your eye is the first camera.
The camera makes you forget you're there. It's not like you are hiding but you forget, you are just looking so much.
The digital camera is a great invention because it allows us to reminisce. Instantly.
From the beginning, the camera and I were great friends. It loves me, and I love it.
I tried to keep both arts alive, but the camera won. I found that while the camera does not express the soul, perhaps a photograph can!
A film is never really good unless the camera is an eye in the head of a poet.
A camera teaches you how to see without a camera.
Look and think before opening the shutter. The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera.
I always have a full-length mirror next to the camera when I'm doing publicity stills. That way, I know how I look.
It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument.
I love my iPhone; it's great to have a camera around all the time.
I was very camera shy. People like hot girls, so I put my music to hot girls and it just became a trend. The whole 'enigmatic artist' thing, I just ran with it. No one could find pictures of me.
I'm not a photographer, so I didn't get into F-stops or ND filters or background, foreground, cross-light, all that stuff. But I was interested in the camera and the lenses. That's the world that I'm moving in, in terms of acting and giving a performance.
I treat the camera like a person - I gaze into it. Photos are a flat thing, and you need to put life into them.
One should really use the camera as though tomorrow you'd be stricken blind.
A lot of people would be embarrassed to admit that they were on 'Barney', but I embrace the fact. I just had such a wonderful time doing that show. I learned what a camera and prop is, and all that. I learned my manners too, so I guess that's a good thing!
I was successful and I enjoyed modeling, but it got to a point where I felt like I had 'been there, done that.' I wanted something that would inspire me and challenge me. I needed something that required more creativity. I started writing and I started auditioning. Simply posing in front of the camera was no longer enough.
The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.
