十四句攝影師與繪畫家們的警語,給同樣喜歡攝影的朋友們參考。

1. Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.....Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900)

投注感情所完成的肖像皆是藝術家的自畫像,而非被繪者的畫像。(奧斯卡.王爾德 / 1854 - 1900)

2.No matter how slow the film, Spirit always stands still long enough for the photographer It has chosen...... Minor White (1908-1976)

無論軟片的速度有多慢,那靈魂將永遠為其所挑選的攝影師而停駐。(麥諾.懷特 / 1908 - 1976)

3.Your equipment DOES NOT affect the quality of your image. The less time and effort you spend worrying about your equipment the more time and effort you can spend creating great images. The right equipment just makes it easier, faster or more convenient for you to get the results you need.....Ken Rockwell

器材並不影響你的影像品質。花費越少的時間在擔心器材上,你就有越多的時間與精力來創作偉大的影像。選對的器材能讓你的創作更簡單、更快﹑更方便的得到你需要的結果。(肯.洛克威爾)

4.The camera's only job is to get out of the way of making photographs......Ken Rockwell

相機唯一的功能就是從照片的製作過程中消失。(肯.洛克威爾)

5.You need to learn to see and compose. The more time you waste worrying about your equipment the less time you'll have to put into creating great images. Worry about your images, not your equipment........Ken Rockwell

你該學習的是「看」與「構圖」。花費越多時間在擔心器材,可用在創作偉大影像的時間就越少。該擔心的是你的影像,而非器材。(肯.洛克威爾)

7.“Photography, as we all know, is not real at all. It is an illusion of reality with which we create our own private world.”......Arnold Newman

我們都知道,攝影一點也不真實。它只是我們用來創造專屬於我們自己的私密世界的一種真實的假象而已。(阿諾.紐曼)

8.“There are no rules and regulations for perfect composition. If there were we would be able to put all the information into a computer and would come out with a masterpiece. We know that's impossible. You have to compose by the seat of your pants.”.......Arnold Newman

完美構圖的準則和規定並不存在。假若有,將它們輸入電腦之後,理應得到一張傑作。但我們知道那是不可能的。構圖還是得靠直覺本能。(阿諾.紐曼)

9.“Think photographs should be provocative and not tell you what you already know. It takes no great powers or magic to reproduce somebody's face in a photograph. The magic is in seeing people in new ways.”..........Duane Michals

照片應當要能激發思考,而非告訴你已知的事。複製某人的臉於相片上,無須擁有強大的權力或魔法才辦得到。真正的魔法是用新的方式去觀看人。(杜安.麥可斯)

10.“How foolish of me to believe that it would be that easy. I had confused the appearance of trees and automobiles, and people with a reality itself, and believed that a photograph of these appearances to be a photograph of it. It is a melancholy truth that I will never be able to photograph it and can only fail. I am a reflection photographing other reflections within a reflection. To photograph reality is to photograph nothing.”....Duane Michals

我竟然會愚蠢到相信它很簡單。我曾誤認了樹木與汽車的外觀,以及真實的人們。甚至以為照片中所拍到物象的樣貌,就是所謂的真實。然而,令人憂鬱的真相是 – 我永遠無法拍到真實,只會失敗。我僅僅是個映像,拍攝著其他在映像之中的映像。去拍攝真實等於什麼也沒拍。(杜安.麥可斯)

11."I have been frequently accused of deliberately twisting subject matter to my point of view. Above all, I know that life for a photographer cannot be a matter of indifference. Opinion often consists of a kind of criticism. But criticism can come out of love. It is important to see what is invisible to others. Perhaps the look of hope or the look of sadness. Also, it is always the instantaneous reaction to oneself that produces a photograph."................Robert Frank

我經常被指控故意扭曲事物的主體以迎合我的觀點。尤其,對身為攝影師的我來說,當然了解生命是件不容輕忽的事。雖然評論中總少不了批評,但是,批評的出發點可以是愛。見人所未見是重要的,不管看見的是希望,還是悲傷。此外,照片的產生永遠是人們瞬間的反應。(羅伯.法蘭克)

12."I do not photograph nature. I photograph my visions."...............Man Ray

不拍自然,我拍夢想。(曼.瑞)

13."I paint what cannot be photographed, that which comes from the imagination or from dreams, or from an unconscious drive. I photograph the things that I do not wish to paint, the things which already have an existence."................Man Ray

我畫我無法拍的,也就是那些源自想像與夢境的,或是無意識的驅力使然。我拍我不想畫的,也就是那些既存的事物。(曼.瑞)

14."Everything is a subject. Every subject has a rhythm. To feel it is the raison d‘?tre(the reason or justification for existing.). The photograph is a fixed moment of such a raison d‘?tre, which lives on in itself."......................André Kertész

萬物皆是題材。所有題材皆有其節奏。去感知它(萬物的節奏)就是它們(萬物)存在的原因。照片是它們(萬物的節奏)被感知的剎那,也就是照片存在的原因。(安德烈.科特茲)
