I always have a camera now that I've got a kid, but I don't think I've got one picture of anyone other than my daughter.
Television is a prisoner of dialogue and steady-cam. People walk down a hall, and the camera follows them around a corner.
I was so besotted with '8½' that, when it was on TV, I used to take pictures with my 35-mm. camera of the frames of the film. That was the first time I'd ever really seen Italians on screen.
I didn't need the insurance. I do it again if my DP tells me it didn't look good in the camera or if the actors didn't hit their marks. But if everything was working why do it again?
Making a pretty picture, an image, is a completely different thing from acting to camera.
I love the idea I can go off with a single camera and a few rolls of film unencumbered... I was not interested in the illusion of reality, I wanted to get close to what was happening.
So anyway, I've learned a lot about myself just in terms of acting but just work ethic and interesting things like full-page monologues or talking straight into camera, which I had never gotten to do before.
Really, voice-over is great. If it paid as much as on camera work, it's all I'd ever do.
I'm an actor. Whether I'm on stage, in front of a camera or a microphone, what I do is the same - although with videogames it requires a lot of imagination.
When I was little, I put on plays for my family at Sunday dinner, and I would direct them and have all my cousins, my brother, and my best friends in it. I was a very imaginative and theatrical child and wasn't afraid of being in front of a camera. It was like make-believe to me.
A camera teaches you how to see without a camera.
The possibility of being as free with the camera as we are with the pen is a fantastic prospect for the creative life of the 21st century.
When I got cast in 'Rocky IV,' I had never seen a film camera before. And here I was in this boxing movie.
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 get that same queasy, nervous, thrilling feeling every time I go to work. That's never worn off since I was 12 years-old with my dad's 8-millimeter movie camera.
Theatre is liberating because it only works if it's truthful - that's what it requires. That's not true of film: the camera does lie.
So successful has been the camera's role in beautifying the world that photographs, rather than the world, have become the standard of the beautiful.
I have very vivid dreams - almost always action-adventure. I'm often on the run. I've always had dreams. When I was little, I'd go to sleep with my head on my hands, which were in fists like I was looking through a camera. I felt like sleep was the movies - just drifting off to the movies.
Camera lies all the time. It's all it does is lie, because when you choose this moment instead of this moment, when you... the moment you've made a choice, you're lying about something larger. 'Lying' is an ugly word. I don't mean lying. But any artist picks and chooses what they want to paint or write about or say. Photographers are the same.
From the beginning, the camera and I were great friends. It loves me, and I love it.
I grew up around horses, but acting and riding on camera is a whole different thing.
The most difficult thing for me is a portrait. You have to try and put your camera between the skin of a person and his shirt.
When I have had such men before my camera my whole soul has endeavored to do its duty towards them in recording faithfully the greatness of the inner as well as the features of the outer man. The photograph thus taken has been almost the embodiment of a prayer.
Julia Margaret Cameron
No photographer is as good as the simplest camera.
