Where you are makes a difference to what you see. New York photographer Lorenzo Dominguez found himself in a difficult position when his marriage failed. He, like many others, had painted himself into a corner by accepting the values of others: the usual, wife, children, house in suburbia, mortgage, corporate job, respectability, doing the right thing. Everything was right. Everything was false.Lorenzo needed to thank his wife. She had broken up his family, leaving him desperate and grieving. So [...]
Photographer Lorenzo Dominguez has the uncanny ability to find beauty in his surroundings. Also gifted in the use of words, his book, 25 Lessons I've Learned (about photography), (blurb) is much more than the typical tech manual on photography. It's more like a roadmap for using your heart, soul and senses to capture images through the lens of a camera.When a change in life events had him soul searching, Lorenzo took to the streets of New York with his camera, photographing every night using his [...]
A big part of building a personal blog is having a platform to improve my writing abilities. With that in mind, I had high hopes for 25 Lessons I’ve Learned about (Photography) Life by Lorenzo DomÍnguez as a tool to learn about writing on my favorite subject as I tossed it into my cart. Upon completing the book, I can safely say that the book did teach me a fair amount about writing on photography. Unfortunately, almost every lesson was an example of what not to do. I got a nagging feeling t [...]
I got this book as a birthday gift from a friend who jokingly challenged me afterwards that I should make my own version after reading it. The book is about Lorenzo Dominguez’ journey in (re)discovering his artistic side while having emotional battles. He just separated from his wife and their two sons were left under her care. But instead of succumbing to depression and loneliness, he made his camera his constant companion and went to discover the neighborhood. And as they say, the rest is hi [...]
In the spring of 2005, writes Lorenzo Dominguez, he and his wife became separated, and he found himself looking for a roof to put over his head. He eventually found a small room in a Manhattan church sanctuary, and while living there, going through the introspection that most of us do when going through traumatic events in our lives, he took up photography. His hobby soon became much more than just a hobby. Photography was in itself the vehicle of his life introspection. Through images taken thr [...]
If this would have ended at about 20 chapters in, it would have been far better. Like this, it just feels dragged on unnecessarily. Some nice points though, such as:"The way you choose to see the world — and life — is ultimately how the world and life will be for you.""People like people who like themselves." "By playing other people’s games you’re playing by other people’s rules. If you have to play a game, play it with yourself—constantly set new goals for yourself and once you ach [...]
I found this an enjoyable quick read about Lorenzo's discovery of photography and himself as he struggles through a separation from his wife and handles being away from his two boys. I enjoyed this book, not so much for his philosophy (I disagree with the "my happiness comes first" philosophy.) but more for how he sees creatively and some of his late night adventures. There were also some nuggets around enhancing your creativity to be gleaned as well. I was disappointed that the Kindle Version o [...]
Enjoyed it - not so much about photography as taking life as it comes - but that was good too. I also love to photograph things, people, places and find that it is a completely different experience looking through the lens than just with the naked eye so I loved reading about the author's journey. He certainly "worked" at it with long evening outings - amazing!
I really did enjoy this book.I like the way the author mix life and photography getting an excellent outcome at the end of each chapter.It is true, if you are a photographer you will feel like sometines this pages are talking directly to you.I do recommend this book.
just stared this book ! and its lame :(
Short book with logical yet ever helpful life lessons and a few tips about the novice photographerI highly recommend it
love it, getting ready to re read it again
