Why do you like photography/art?
I just love being able to escape and think about what i want to portray in a photo.
Where do you see yourself in the future?
Definitely europe, studying abroad
Where did you learn how to edit and do you have any tips: i just started messing around with photoshop. it took me quite a long time to understand, the first time i used it i was very confused. i still have a lot to learn about it, however. i'm slowly getting better each day. as for tips, don't over-do it. when using natural lighting, i try not to change the colors too much, because then it won't look real.
Who/what/where are important parts of you photographic process:
Before beginning, i visualize what i want a picture to look like, such as the composition, angle, etc. then i try and get as close as possible to that.
Film or digital?
Hmm, that's a difficult choice. i think i'd rather film, because there's no feeling like waiting to get your own pictures in your hands. looking through them for the first time and seeing how they came out is really awesome. with film, when you make a mistake, you learn to not make it again.
My favorite band is passion pit, i went to their concert recently. it was amazing.
