interview with a photographer

A few weeks ago, I was going through the flickr favorites of my friends, like I do from time to time, in hopes of finding some new-to-me and inspiring photographers. I found a bunch! A few were so compelling that I jotted off emails to them right away to see if they would be interested in a little interview series I wanted to put together. Here is the first of two interviews this week.

I hope you enjoy the photos and words as much as I have! 

Our first photographer is Maria. All of her photos are lovely, but I’m especially taken with her shots of interiors.

Well us a little about yourself:
I am Maria, 29 years old. I am from Germany but moved to Sydney in August 2010. Ever since I am walking along the streets here trying to capture little moments of life.

What kinds of camera(s) do you use? 
I use a Canon 450d (digital). But lately I only use my two Pentax cameras, a Pentax SP 500 and K1000 which I both scored on a flea market.

What are you looking for when you’re taking a photo?
Hmm, that is a good question. I tend to always have a camera with me not particularly having a thing in mind of what I would like to take a photo. Usually it is nice shades, colours, shapes, patterns or colour combinations which catch my eye. This is when I get out my camera and click 🙂

What are your favorite kind of photos to take?  
Most of the times those photos which put me back to the moment I took them, when they tell a little story just for myself – remind me, and at the same time also tell a story to people who looks at them.

Film or digital? 
Lately I prefer the magic of film.
