Butterflies by JulijaJan

First of all I got to say that this is an amazing capturing image at first sight. The subtle tones and the bright red on the lips works...

Me and I by Helen-Carter

First of all I have to say that I like the first impression of this image. Maybe not the most original idea, but well executed for sure...

When I first saw this all I could think about was "WOW! colors!" The sunset warm tones are perfectly capture, the model position enhanc...

I saw this over on VelvetRedBullet and decided I was bored enough to do it. PLUS! I'm very absent around here lately, so I'm compensating by overwhelming you with information :happybounce:  (*logic!*)Heart 

Share your own info with me Airborne 

  • When did your interest in photography begin?

            As cliché as it may sound, it started circa 2004-5, when 14 y/o me came across DeviantArt. I was so taken aback to how talented people were, and how much they could achieve with something as ‘simple’ and as much as a ‘daily object’ as a camera.
            I always wrote and drew and paint, but I started to find those medias constricting, and photography was the silver lining that came to my help. From then on I was hooked!!

  • What was the FIRST camera you used to take your photos?

            I remember playing around with my dad’s film DSLR (a Nikon F-801 I think) when I was a kid, then the compact digital cameras appeared and me and my Nikon E5900 became best friends (best macro lenses on a compact camera I’ve ever seen tbh!)

I Never Want To Close My Eyes by starg691  Look at that pretty crisp macro, dude!!! 

  • What was your first DSLR and when did you get it?

            My dad’s Nikon D80 was the first DSLR I got my hands on. After 5 years of constant stolen moments I got my own: My beloved Canon 60D

  • What camera(s) do you own and use now? Any lenses?

        Canon 60D with a Canon 35mm f/2. I also own a Canon 50mm f/1.8 and a kit lense Canon 17-85mm f/4-5.6

I also sometimes use the old Nikon F-301

  • Do you still have the first photo you took with your camera?

F A D I N G . . . by starg691 First set of photos with the Canon 60D 

  • What editing program did you use when you first started?

            GIMP! Photoshop seemed way too complicated and I didn’t had access to the software at that time

  • And the one you use now?

          Photoshop CS6 or CC, depends on which computer I am atm.

  • How did you gain your skills and knowledge? School, self-taught, etc?

            I am mainly self-taught as I’ve never been to any Photography nor Photoshop class. I watched and read a lot of Photoshop tutorials and then applied them to Gimp. I also liked to just play around a lot. On my early days I used to over-use textures and layered out a lot!

            I found a tiny little 10 pages-book in my house that was some sort of a on-the-go-manual for 35mm cameras where they broke down the very basics of different light situations. Apart from talking about different ISO’s films, the rest was all I needed to understand shutter speed and aperture!

  • Your favourite thing to capture? What do you like to focus your work on?

           I guess I could say I’m obsessed with human nature. I’m a very introspective person, so I’m fascinated about feelings, and the constant diatomic battle of light and dark. I believe from the darkest moments the brightest images are born.
        My photos are a sort of purge of my own over-working and anxious brain.  I conceive my works as static poetry, and the words that accompanied the piece as equal as important as the piece itself most of the times.

  • Is photography a hobby for you, or something you'd like to/currently are pursuing as a career?

            As for now, photography is a hobby. A very important, and necessary for my mental-health hobby; but I don’t get anything out of it. But I’d like to pursue it as a career in the future, once my studies are over! (even though it’s scary as hell!!!)

  • Your dream camera that you'd love to own?

            I’d die to own a Canon 5D *__* with an underwater case and a wide angle lens. If that’s not too much to ask…
