What is your favorite style of photography?
A: I prefer images with people in them. It doesn’t have to be a close up or of a model either. I find people more interesting than vast landscapes.
What made you take the first step to become a photographer?
A: I actually got into photography due to a breakup. We dated for almost five years and I felt miserable for many weeks afterwards. I needed something to occupy my mind.
What helped you learn photo editing the best and do you have any advice for new photographers struggling with that aspect of photography?
A: Google is your best friend. Anything I got stuck on or wanted to learn I would usually be able to find on Google or YouTube.
Describe your editing style/technique.
A: I prefer my images to be low contrast and desaturated. I always thought that was how I edited but just a few weeks ago I learned it’s this way because of my lenses.
