About me:

Photography, by ivar dahl larsen.
It is an obsession to me
A passion
A desire to create
Perhaps not art
But fractions of reality
A glimpse of beauty
Preserved eternally.
Maybe some day
An image will catch
a glimpse or a scene
of something emotionally right
to a whole lot of people
which means.
That an image might
be able to do
if not change the world
that’s hard to perceive
but hopefully make
a difference somehow,
to you.
So there I am,
walking about
Among people in darkness and light
through angles and different perspectives
I freeze
every moment in sight.

On Fujifilm X-T1 First Impressions Review preview (1657 comments in total)

It seems I might be hooked, in spite of what I previously have said about my two X-E1. I need a cool shower now.

In these photographs nothing really deviates from the way the photographer photographed it except the condition of light. What if a photographer underexpose or overexpose a picture, would not the reality of the picture still stand if nothing else is tampered with? It is of importance to raise the question of authencity, but the exampless used here have no significance to the article according to my opinion.

On Best Camera of 2012: And the Winner is... article (1412 comments in total)

A poll is a poll and the two DSLR's can hardly be compared with a hybrid. I would rather call the poll; the most liked camera according to the poll.

Great photographs under circumstances most People of today cannot apprehend. Let's never forget and may it never happen again.

I am glad on behalf of Rodrigues, I like the photo and of course it's a subjective statement. All photography is subjectively assessed. I am sorry for all the envy that sometime occurrs. I find it great that The world Press supports documentary photography and hey, we are only humans and we are not infallible.

Congratulations, very good picture and very well done.

From what I can judge from the samples, it does not impress me a bit. My old 50mm Pentax 1,7 with adapter and my Canon 85mm/1,8 EF with adapter are doing much greater in every aspect on a GH2 as well as a G3. Albeit manual.

MichaelEchos: Nice.

With this new lens on my GH2 I finally have my "Ball-of-a-like-a" for street photography, providing it's as good as it should be!

On Leica M-Monochrom preview (449 comments in total)
In reply to:

Photozopia: I'm in for one .... BUT ..... first I gotta email Apple to make a B&W only Cinema display. Couldn't possibly process the M-M output on a full colour one! Keeping It Real Leica!

(Sarcasm alert - in case you were wondering!)

Cameras of today,whether this Leica or any other high end cameras are by few exceptions, very much alike in regard to quality. It is mostly up to taste, economy and what one gives priority to. Rudeness has no place here. I have seen wonderfully exhibited photographs taken with a small aps-c modells and you can't really tell which camera produced it. But in many cases you can tell which photographer made it.

Brad121: I've gone off the idea of spending big bucks for this shoddy piece of work.

There shouldn't be a light leak in the first place. How they solved it is irrelevant as long as it works. The new batch should hopefully have no leak.

On DSC_0064 photo in dpreview review samples's photo gallery (8 comments in total)

Sorry, but I find it strange that you say you use 18-55mm lens and the picture shows that you have 24mm as focal length. It seems however that the camera may turn out to be remarkable regarding high ISO.

On 'No Future in Photojournalism' Interview: Dan Chung article (278 comments in total)
In reply to:

jj74e: It's kind of sad. I guess video is the superior medium and technology was really the only limiting factor for a wide range of people to really start adopting it.

Kind of disappointed...not only is photography dying out, but it means more competition over YouTube, college, workshops, internships for video, when it has been somewhat easier to find your niche....but then again it means more resources, more education, more awareness, and possibly more audiences.

As a high school senior, I hope no matter what major I end up picking, that photography/video can remain a big part of my life. There's just something about those mediums that can translate into powerful messages that couldn't be communicated otherwise.

He probably has some right in his visions regarding what the media wants and which media. When photography came about, paintings were doomed. That proved not the case. Video and stills will live side by side, but at the moment, and that is what it’s all about, is earning a living for the ones in the journalistic business. And it is video. Albeit, a still has more impact than a video which hurries by and is seldom being watched again. At least, that’s my opinion.

On Where the Streets Have No Names photo in Mahesh's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

Hello Mahesh, can't quite see why you are starving?Jokes aside. This is not a comment to this specific photograph but to all of yours here in this gallery. I have photographed for more than 40 years, and I can truly say that you are a very talented photographer with a great gift. Don't know your age, do not have to know. All your photographs here must have been especially picked for the gallery, and they are wonderfully good. The one with mount Baker brings back fond memories to me. After having seen your photographs from The Big Apple, I had to see your gallery. I am very impressed. Take care.
