[轉載] 14 件攝影人嘴上說及實際上的情況


本文的原文是 WilhelmChang Photography 的《14件攝影人嘴上說及實際上的情況》,基本上是 Digital Camera World 的《32 things photographers say… and what they really mean》一文的局部性翻譯。

內容的性質,有點類似之前的《科學論文裡用詞的真相》,Heresy 這邊基本上是做個簡單的重排版。


(原文來源: Digital Camera World)
Digital Camera World 日前刊出一篇酸意十足的文章,
諷刺一些技術還不是很純熟,但又喜歡嘴上說一些漂亮話的人。
對於那些知道自己在幹什麼的人,當然就不適用於這篇諷刺文。
原文總共列出32項,我挑出比較好笑的以下14項來跟大家分享。

  • 當他說…(When photographers say…)
    我主要都是用自然光拍 (I work primarily with natural light.)

    • 翻譯… (They actually mean…)
      我用閃光拍超爛的,真的,超爛的。 (My flash exposures are awful. Seriously, they’re awful.)

  • 當他說… (When photographers say…)
    我都只有稍微後製而已。(I only carry out minimal post-processing.)

    • 翻譯… (They actually mean…)
      Photoshop 對我來說真的有夠複雜,我只會用銳利化遮罩左右拉一拉之類的,而且還不知道那些滑桿到底有啥作用。
      (Photoshop confuses the heck out of me. I mean, I can shuffle the Unsharp Mask sliders left and right a bit, but I really have no idea what I’m doing.)

  • 當他說… (When photographers say…)
    我想表達的是按下快門那瞬間我的感受。
    (What I try to evoke through my photography is the feeling I experienced at the time of pressing the shutter.)

    • 翻譯…(They actually mean…)
      我看到東西然後就按下快門 (I see stuff and then take pictures of it.)

  • 當他說… (When photographers say…)
    我想用我的照片們來表達這些連續的瞬間。(I try to capture a fleeting moment in time in my images.)

    • 翻譯…
      我看到東西然後拍下來,不然就是我沒看到東西,然後用最高連拍模式希望可以矇到一些東西。
      (I see stuff and then take pictures of it. Or rather, I don’t see stuff as I tend to shoot at the fastest frame rate and HOPE TO GOD I get something.)

  • 當他說(When photographers say…)
    我比較偏好黑白攝影 (I prefer to work in the black and white medium.)

    • 翻譯…
      噢~ 我愛死了黑白模式可以掩蓋我的差勁曝光,希望我爆掉的亮部和被剪裁的暗部不會太明顯。
      (Man, I love the way I can rescue my bad exposures with a black and white conversion. Hopefully my burnt-out highlights and clipped shadows won’t be quite so obvious now.)

  • 當他說… (When photographers say…)
    我想改成只用定焦鏡來拍 (I’m thinking of switching to just shooting primes.)

    • 翻譯… (They actually mean…)
      專業的攝影師只用定焦鏡對吧? 我也要跟他們一樣。
      (Serious photographers use primes, right? I definitely want to be one of those.)

  • 當他說… (When photographers say…)
    (對模特兒)擺出你覺得最舒服的姿勢就好了。 ((To a model) Just sit/stand how you feel comfortable)

    • 翻譯… (They actually mean…)
      親愛的,老實說,我根本不知道要怎樣教你擺姿勢。
      (Honestly, love, I really have no clue how to pose you for this picture.)

  • 當他說… (When photographers say…)
    老實說,相機對我來說只是工具而已。 (To be honest, my camera is just a tool)

    • 翻譯… (They actually mean…)
      真的老實說,我單眼相機上一半的功能我根本不了解,這張照片是一樣工具拍的,而且那樣工具不是相機。
      (To be really honest, I don’t know what half the stuff on my DSLR does. There’s only one tool in this picture-taking partnership, and it’s not the camera…)

  • 當他說… (When photographers say…)
    我想上全幅。 (I’m thinking of going full-frame)

  • 當他說… (When photographers say…)
    我越來越常用我的iPhone了。 (I’m beginning to use my iPhone more and more)

    • 翻譯… (They actually mean…)
      我開始後悔我花那麼多錢在鏡頭上了,而且我也不能再這樣砸錢下去了。
      (I’m starting to regret how much I’ve blown on lenses that I can’t face lugging around any longer.)

  • 當他說… (When photographers say…)
    我想要大光圈鏡頭。 (I need a faster lens.)

    • 翻譯… (They actually mean…)
      我想要新玩具。 (I want a new toy.)

  • 當他說… (When photographers say…)
    我想跳系統。 (I’m thinking of changing systems)

    • 翻譯… (They actually mean…)
      我覺得我現在的高品質裝備是我不能完全發揮我創意的原因。
      而且,我爬文看到另一個系統的ISO更乾淨半級,這對我這種不是靠攝影吃飯的人實在有天差地遠的影響。
      (I’m convinced that my current, high-quality gear is the real reason I’m not fulfilling my creative vision. Besides, I’ve read that the other system will give me a half-stop ISO advantage, and that really will make all the difference to someone like me who doesn’t make a living from photography.)

  • 當他說… (When photographers say…)
    這種光線很差。 (The light’s just not right)

    • 翻譯… (They actually mean…)
      我完全不知道怎樣運用這種光線來拍照。
      (I’m all out of ideas. I don’t know what to take pictures of in this light.)
