I do a lot of landscape and combine it with lifestyle photography, I prefer moody and rainy weather but also the colors in the early morning light. I like to mix warm orange tones with cold blue tones and have a very vivid tone palette to my pictures. I think it is really important to find a harmony in color and attending an art school for 5 years definitely helped to learn about composition and colors.
I have always loved to take pictures and I remember I used to hang out with my best friend to shoot creative pictures & portraits with her camera. When I was 14 I got my first DSLR camera for my birthday and took pictures of my friends and my travels. I used to go shoot now and then but I really got into it when I bought my first full frame around one year ago, I somehow rediscovered my love for photography and fell in love especially with capturing landscapes because you can create art, be in the great outdoors and make beautiful memories with friends, it is every time an adventure.
I often visit places that I already saw online or in magazines and try to go to get my own unique shot of that place, I know a lot of people, especially in the Instagram community, say it is not really creative to go to the places everyone has already a seen, but for me this is different: I think it is more a challenging to go to a place that everyone knows and create your own unique version no one has seen yet. I try to keep my eyes open while driving or while hiking and look out for a potentially good picture. I also like to incorporate people in the landscapes to give a scale and just make the viewer feel more a part of it somehow.
I think for now it has to be the Faroe Island I visited back in April this year, it was such a wonderful trip exploring the island and see landscapes that are totally new and unique to me. I visited the Faroe Islands with my mother and sister but they weren’t always ready to join early in the morning for a sunrise missions but I was okay with it, in the end, the whole trip it was an experience I won’t forget.
I use the Canon 6d with a 24-70mm f.4 lens and I also have a drone which is the Dji Mavic Pro and that is about it. I will probably get some more lenses in the future but for now it is totally fine I rather take what I have and don’t carry around to much weight.
The best thing is to just get out there as much as possible and if you don’t live somewhere close to mountains or the coast just try to plan a trip to somewhere with your friends and family to make some unique memories. I think nowadays it is really important to go outside and to take a break from the virtual world we are constantly in.
