Yousuf Karsh (December 23, 1908 – July, 13, 2002) was one of the most accomplished photographers of his time. Karsh’s work stood out in portrait photography with his distinct use of artificial light. Karsh would experiment with lights in his studio to give his images a dramatic effect.- http://bit.ly/1hQJJIa
(On becoming a priest) About the age of 15 or so I did consider it, and specifically not just any old priest, I considered being a missionary, ‘cause I thought the whole great romantic idea of going off to far-flung regions, and helping people and trying to do all that was not only a good thing to do and romantic thing to do, but quite an adventurous thing to do. So I thought about that, but then I did start getting more luck with girls about that time, and that sort of put the kibosh on wedding myself to God. Girls and adventure, and then acting kind of came along right at that moment as well, and so I am so, so thankful, especially since I turned my back on God, he has not punished me, thank you very much.
