Questions and Answers

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 24, 2012, 1:59 PM
I said i would do a Q & A, so here you go ^_^
If someone still has other questions you can write them as a comment or send them via note and i will add them
( i am sorry about any llinguistic or grammatical errors )

1. What's your real name? Where are you from and how old are you?
My name is Vanessa, i live in germany and i am 17 years old ^_^

2. When did you start taking photos ?
To be honest i don't really know. I got my DSLR camera in spring 2012, around this time i really took a lot of photos. Of course i had a normal digital camera before that and i often took it with me when i went out, but i hated my old camera..... it was so frustrating >__< That's why i bought a DSLR camera soon after taking a real interest in photography even though it was a lot of money for me as a student.

3. When did you start taking  macro photos ?
Similar answer : i don't know an exact date, but i started soon after getting my reflex camera. I loved all the photos i saw here on deviantart and everywhere else and just wanted to try it and i noticed that i really like to get close to things and view them in a different way you normally do. ♥

4. How did you start to do photography ?
Well.... maybe because i was looking for a hobby. I was never good at things like drawing or making music and i am too lazy for sports, so photography is perfect for me.
Or it just lies in my genes : D My mother and my father both were interested in photography when they were young.

5. What camera equipment do you currently use?
A lot of people think that i have a lot of expensive equipment but they are totally wronge ^_^ I am a stundent so i don't have enough money to buy what i want. I use a :
- Canon EOS 1100d (EOS Rebel T3)
- Canon 18-55mm Kit Lens
- Canon 55-250 mm Lens
- Closeup Filters ( no special brand, i paid 20 for 4 of them )

6. Have you ever tried doing portraits or landscapes? or simply something different?
Yes i tried a lot of different things, i often take photos of landscapes or wild animals, but i don't really upload them here since they aren't good ^^' A thing that i never tried are portaits since i don't have any models .___. Maybe i could do some Selfportaits but i don't have a IR timer so it is difficult do do that.

7. How do you get inspiration for your photographs?
I love to go out with my dog to get inspiration. Beside that i also love to look at other peoples work to get inspired. ^_^

8. School and photography don't come along well in terms of time management how did you make time for photography or doen't it effect each other ?
To answer that question i have to say that photography is my hobby and school is my "job". Of course school comes first even if that means that i can't take photos for a while. At the moment it is quite annoying, i leave home at 7 am and get home at 5 pm. When i get home it is dark outside and i can't take photos. I guess somehow i am lucky because i don't have to learn as much as others do have to, to get good marks, so i can use some of my freetime to take photos : )

9. Are your waterdrops really just water?
Yes ! I don't add anything to the water.

10. How do you get such round drops?
Use small drops and put them on water-repellent objects, that is the best way to get a round drop.

11. How do you apply your drops?
That depends on the situation. Normally i use a syringe with a really small opening (you can see it here) . My mother always complains about a syringe laying around : D
For the spidernet photos i just spray water since it is easier ^_^

Thanks for the Q&A as it gave us a better picture of the artist ;).

What are you studying at the moment? Myself I'm doing a degree in Illustration and Animation (joint honours) at Cambridge School of Art in England.

Schön, dass du dir die Zeit genommen hast all die Fragen zu beantworten =)

Und ich lag mit meiner Annahme richtig: Wir besitzen tatsächlich fast das gleiche Equipment =P
Ich kann auch die Canon 1100D mit der 18-55mm Kit Lens mein Eigen nennen und habe auch Closeup Lenses für lediglich 20€ bei mir rumliegen :happybounce:
