I love to photograph gerberas... they are such beautiful flowers. This was originally a white gerbera photographed by candlelight. I subsequently altered the hue in photoshop to give it the blue tint.
I have come to love simple pictures and minimalism and I loved the way this one turned out after converting to black and white.... it is nice to photograph flowers but I also like to make them look a little "different";)
1: How long have you been involved in photography?
Up until June last year I was your normal every day family snap photographer. I had never put much thought into photography until I received a DSLR for my birthday and I discovered Flickr!!
2: Equipment you use?
My equipment consists of Canon 350D, 60mm macro lens, some extension tubes, 18-55mm kit lens and for Christmas this year I was given the 10-22 wide angle lens and the Canon 24-105mm L lens... Santa was good to me ;)
3: Mac or PC?
4: What inspires you?
All my inspiration so far has come from the wonderful people on Flickr... I have learnt sooo much from them during the past 6 months... thank you to everyone!
5: Prefered subject matter?
Most definitely flowers!
6: Name one thing you haven't caught with the camera that you REALLY want to capture.
I would love to be able to capture a bird in flight... probably a very simple thing to do but I haven't managed to do it yet ;)
7: When in doubt about your art, who do you confide in?
I simply upload and let the Flickr community decide!
8: Qualifications/training in anything? ie: Photoshop
I am totally self-taught in photography and photoshop.
9: Plans for the future?
No particular plans... I am still very much a beginner and there is still lots more for me to learn so I hope I can continue to better myself in the future.
10: In one word, describe your photography.
