So I get a lot of questions asked about my photography, and thought instead of repeating myself over and over, people can read answers here. So here we go. This is part one. Anymore questions you want to no please comment or ask me here: http://www.formspring.me/JodieAndrews
WHAT CAMERA DO YOU USE?
A canon EOS 450D
HOW DO YOU GET SUCH GOOD SELF PORTRAITS?
I use a tripod and set it up exactly where I want it, I then have a remote control timer that I have in the photo with me and I press a button - vwall - lahhh!
WHAT LENS DO YOU USE?
A canon 50mm f.8
WHAT DO YOU USE TO EDIT YOUR PHOTOS?
ARE THE PLACES YOU SHOOT LOCAL?
They used to be. But then I got bored and started travelling more - mostly just to London and just out of Hertfordshire (where I live)
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR IDEAS?
Mostly from my immagination. Books. Magazines. Music. Tv. Movies and sometimes people. I think in pictures. So anything beautiful I hear, see, touch, taste, smell - I transform it into ideas and that leads my imagination of onto a whole new road of other ideas.
HOW IS THE COURSE AT UNI?
It's shit. Thanks. haha! I hate it. It's a waste of time, I learn nothing, and every project we hand in is pointless. At the end of the day as the lovely Lara Jade (fashion photographer) said to me; ''Tutors are just failed photographers'' If they tell me to shoot in a way I'm not happy shooting then I wont do it. I do it my wayyyyy.
DO YOU USE A PRE-SETTING ON YOUR DSLR OR DO YOU SET IT MANUALLY?
It all depends really. I shoot a lot on TV mode, and set the ISO and aperature myself.
DID YOU MAKE YOUR OWN WEBSITE?
Yup sure did. Completely from scratch - was hard so I'm proud.
DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS STARTING OUT?
Keep at it! You'll have lows and highs and you'll most likely question your ability to make it as a photographer, but if you stick at it - try and fail - try and succeed. If your hearts in it, you're on the right track. Don't listen to tutors and don't get caught up in the technical jiberish. Who cares if your photography is not technically right - photograhy is about the art, the imagination and the beauty you feel from looking at one photo. Not the technical side of things that we can't even see. Dont' listen to anyone - do it your way.
