It’s time for the third photographer focus interview, and today’s photographer is Lokigrl616.You can view her photos here, all 160 of them.
Hi Lokigrl616, please tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got into photography.
I am a stay at home mom, 25 years old, and photography has been a passion since I discovered Ansel Adams when I was on the yearbook staff in 7th grade, his pictures and respect for for the beauty of nature moved me.
What kind of camera do you use, and do you use any additional gear when shooting?
I like to use my Minolta Maxxum 5, I find that the color is great and I’m a sucker for classic hardware 🙂 I have a few lenses but I like to keep to the basics and use Photoshop for any additional needs.
Have you had any professional training as a photographer?
The only photography training I have had is in high school and lots of applied practice of course 🙂 I’m also a fan of the training that creativecow.com offers.
A lot of your work is created digitally. What program do you use, and what motivates you to create digital art?
I am very fond of anything abstract, I like to create things the way I see them in my mind, hence the multitude of digital art I put out there. i use Apophysis in conjunction with Photoshop for most of my effects.
Do you have any hobbies apart from photography/design?
Other than being a mom, my hobbies are pretty much limited to music and video games, I enjoy graphics and challenges.
What are your plans for the future?
As for the future, I have the laid back belief that I will figure it out when i get there 🙂 But I would like to think that my future involves art since it is such a great relief for me.
Have you done anything silly lately, a funny story perhaps?
When don’t i do something silly 🙂 I try to keep laughter at a maximum every day in our house. You should see some of the faces i make to make my son laugh…
Thanks for taking the time to answer these questions, it’s a pleasure to have you as a photographer here at stockvault.net – Is there anything you’d like to add?
I would just like to add that I am honored to have answered these questions and that i love being a part of stockvault.net 🙂
