I am Marta (@marta_spencer) hosting the today's special post, an interview with a fellow mobile photographer.
Kevin (@geek1956 ).
His work is exceptional 🌟🌟 and is one among thoes who have been featured the most.
# Where do you live?
# What do you do for a living?
▶I’m now semi retired after working 45 years as a Surveyor. I currently work as a meter reader which indulges my passion for being outside and walking anywhere from 15-20km a day
# What type of camera do you use?
▶iPhone and I’ve just updated to the IPhone X
# What inspires you to take a photo?
▶The act of being creative with whatever happens to attract my attention. This combined with the Hipstamatic app, and in particular the “Shake to Random” function which never fails to inspire me with some great combos. I also find inspiration from like-minded friends on IG.
# What is it that you see, that others don’t?
▶I suppose we bring to photography our lives and years of experience and I just try to photograph the things that I love to capture.
# Black and white, or color?
▶If I had to choose I would say black and white although I’m not sure that my gallery would testify to that. I love the simplicity of black and white and the fact that the photo is “reduced” to the simply light, contrast and composition without the “distraction” of colour.
# You have been photographing lots of mannequins lately. What’s up with that?.
▶😉Ha Ha Ha Maybe Freud could answer that. I’ve always been attracted to classic, old style Mannequins and I enjoy contrasting the lonely shop mannequin with a reflection of the street life “outside”. Weird I know 😂.
# Is Weather ever a factor for you? You Aussies have a lot of sunny days.
▶Well we do get a lot of sunny days but like everyone I still enjoy the hour either side of sunrise. I will often get up before 5am and catch a train to the city to catch the sunrise, the Opera House being a favourite spot.
# How many shots do you take to get the right one?
▶I will shoot anywhere from 20 to maybe 100 shots a day. Then I will let them “marinate” for a few weeks before looking at them and editing. So quite often the photos I post could be anywhere up to 6 months old.
