Five at Five Questions

  •  When and how did you start on your photographic journey? 

My dad was a keen photographer! He always had a camera handy and always encouraged me to try it too. I got my first camera in the 7th grade. I think it was a Kodak.  This picture is one of my first images.

  • What subject do you like photographing the most? 

Anything actually! Although mostly flowers, the ocean, nature, rocks, birds, plants, mountains and Sunsets.  

  • Have you been influenced by other photographers, if so by whom and why? If not, who is your favourite photographer? 

I don’t think I have been influenced by one specific photographer, but use a lot of their tips to take better photos. There are so many brilliant photographers that I cannot even decide which one I like most.  Cee inspired me a lot through her blog.  

  • What is the go-to camera equipment that you use regularly and what software do you use to process your images? 

I use my Nikon D3100 for most of my photos, but also use my Cell phone a lot. I’ve also got a little Canon Power shot SX 210 IS that I use occasionally. 

  • What is your favourite method of processing an image? (i.e., colour, monochrome, saturated, dreamy look etc) 

Normally colour, but I also like certain photos in monochrome.
