I am a big fan of Terry Richardson and was having a hard time finding out about what cameras he uses nowadays. I know he was well known for using more point and shoot type cameras in the past and found info on him using an old Yashica T4 (Kyocera T5) 35mm point and shoot.
Following his tumblr blog lately, He has been posting a lot of time/date stamped pics that were dated the same day he posted them, which got me wondering about if he was finally jumping on the digital point and shoot bandwagon or if he was just extremely quick at getting film processed. Since I have been wanting to lighten my load of carrying around a big dslr all the time, I did a google search about any info on what digital cameras he was using and came up with out much help except for someone pointing out that most of the pics he posts still have the exif data which shows the camera model used to take the picture. So I went checkin the pics on his tumblr site. Suprising to find, I found at least 10 different camera models he uses or has used. The time/date stamped photos that he has been posting a lot of are from the well respected Ricoh GR Digital III 10 MP Digital Camera
He has used quite a few Panasonic Lumix series cameras as well. There’s a smatering of canon, nikon, and even shots from his crackberry. Below I have some example pics with the camera models they were shot with linked under each shot or couple of shots. I hope this helps other people out there looking for the secret of Terry’s magical capturing of the world. Injoy :) - HVC3
Everybody can be freed from nightmares, from sufferings, from miseries, but of course not directly. The problem is that you cannot be freed from your suffering directly because you are clinging to it. It is not the suffering that is the problem, it is you who are clinging which is the problem. You don’t want to leave it. You brag about it, you talk about it. You even talk about how to get out of this misery. But one who has eyes can see that you are clinging to the misery as hard as possible. Just the presence of a master can help you to see whether the misery is clinging to you, or you are clinging to the misery. That is a very decisive point. Once you see that you are clinging to the misery, you are freed. Just the seeing of it, the very understanding, is freedom.
There is a solar power revolution quietly going on all across Africa by poor rural illiterate women, mostly grandmothers, who are empowering total villages with solar power. This is amazing, heart warming, and awesome. The world is changing. You should watch this and pass it on. Power to the PEOPLE.
Before our white brothers came to civilize us we had no jails. Therefore we had no criminals. You can’t have criminals without a jail. We had no locks or keys, and so we had no thieves. If a man was so poor that he had no horse, tipi or blanket, someone gave him these things. We were too uncivilized to set much value on personal belongings. We wanted to have things only in order to give them away. We had no money, and therefore a man’s worth couldn’t be measured by it. We had no written law, no attorney or politicians, therefore we couldn’t cheat. We were in a really bad way before the white man came, and I don’t know how we managed to get along without the basic things which, we are told, are absolutely necessary to make a civilized society.
– Lakota Sage Lame Deer (from John Lame Deer, Seeker of Visions)
One tires of living in the country, one moves to the city; one is tired of one’s native land, one travels abroad; one is europamüde, one goes to America, and so on; finally one indulges in a dream of endless travel from star to star. Or the movement is different but still in extension. One tires of porcelain dishes, one dines off silver; one tires of that, one dines off gold; one burns half of Rome to get an idea of the conflagration at Troy. But this method defeats itself: it is the bad infinite. And what did Nero achieve? No, Antonine was wiser; he says, “It is in your power to review your life, to look at things you saw before, from another point of view.”
The method I propose consists not in changing the soil but, as in the real rotation of crops, in changing the method of cultivation and type of grain. Here, straightaway, we have the principle of limitation, which is the only saving one in the world. The more you limit yourself, the more resourceful you become. A prisoner in solitary confinement for life is most resourceful, a spider can cause him much amusement.
I think that’s what’s wrong with the world; no one says what they really feel, they always hold it inside. They’re sad, but they don’t cry. They’re happy, but they don’t dance or sing. They’re angry, but they don’t scream. Because if they do, they feel ashamed and that’s the worst feeling in the world. So everyone walks with their heads down and no one sees how beautiful the sky is.
An educated person is not necessarily a person with a lot of general or specialized knowledge, but one who has so developed the faculties of their mind that they can acquire anything they want, or its equivalent, without violating the rights of others.
