It’s time for the third photographer focus interview, and today’s photographer is Lokigrl616.You can view her photos here, all 160 of them.

Hi Lokigrl616, please tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got into photography.

Lokigrl616I am a stay at home mom, 25 years old, and photography has been a passion since I discovered Ansel Adams when I was on the yearbook staff in 7th grade, his pictures and respect for for the beauty of nature moved me.

What kind of camera do you use, and do you use any additional gear when shooting?

I like to use my Minolta Maxxum 5, I find that the color is great and I’m a sucker for classic hardware 🙂 I have a few lenses but I like to keep to the basics and use Photoshop for any additional needs.

Have you had any professional training as a photographer?

The only photography training I have had is in high school and lots of applied practice of course 🙂 I’m also a fan of the training that creativecow.com offers.

Photographer focus – SimpleLine

SimpleLine has been with us for a while and although he doesn’t have many photos uploaded, the ones he has are of superb quality. His image “The feelings room” even won our Feelings contest in 2007. You can view SimpleLine’s photos here. Now lets get to know the talented SimpleLine a bit more…

Hi SimpleLine, please tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got into photography.

SimpleLineI’m from Indonesia, born in 1979. Currently I’m an engineer at a bicycle manufacture. I got into photography around 1999, my friend bought a compact Kodak digital camera, it was one of the first kind in my country, and from time to time I got to try the camera, shoot here and there and it became a new hobby for me. In 2001 I started to do some freelance photography jobs for weddings, just small timer 🙂 Later on I bought my own camera and got more serious, he he!

What kind of camera do you use, and do you use any additional gear when shooting?

Currently I am using Canon 40D and really expecting the expensive 5D Mark II quality, hehehe! Anyway, before that I used Sony prosumer F707, Canon 350D then 400D then the current 40D.
When shooting outdoors I usually use a 580EX flash for fill in… in modeling shots I usually pair with ST-E2 so I can get a better lighting angle… but mostly, only the camera and the lens is enough.

Have you had any professional training as a photographer?

Nope… I teach my self how to do it, trial and error, read some articles then go exploring it.
