Interview with Dominique Dubied

Interviews

18 September 2015

Posted by Sally Hart

Hi Dominique! Tell us about yourself in two sentences - who are you?

I work in software development and am based in Switzerland. My love of photography lets me escape the technical stuff by getting out in nature. What a pleasure being in beautiful locations and simply appreciating these inspiring moments while taking pictures!

QWhat's the weirdest situation you've found yourself in while taking a photograph?

AI was taking long exposures along a small lake in Switzerland. It was a very windy day. My camera was on the tripod and I was trying my best to protect my gear from the wind. After some successful shots the wind seemed to decrease and I paid less attention to the weather. I decided to change my lens for another one in order to find another angle of view. My photo bag was just three meters behind me on a bench. I left my camera and while I was opening my bag, a sudden burst of wind made my tripod and camera fall down in the water! I swore and tried to get my camera out of the water as soon as possible, but the damage was done, it was wrecked!
Moreover I was going to Iceland two weeks later, so I had to quickly buy another camera, I had no choice. Before that accident I had the idea to renew my old gear someday, but I would never expect to do it in these circumstances…

QWhat do you shoot on? What's your favourite set up?

AI am currently using Canon EOS 5DMkII. My favourite lens for shooting landscapes is my new Canon 16-35mm f/4 L lens, it gives great image quality. In many locations where the foreground is really beautiful I use the very wide angle position of the zoom, it leads to very creative images. My dream lens today is the new Canon 12-24mm that opens even more doors to landscape lovers.
As I am also shooting long exposures, the Little and Big Stopper filters from Lee are part of my camera bag. These filters block much of the incoming light, you can then select a longer exposure time and so smooth out water or record nice cloud movements.

QWhat's your number one tip for an aspiring photographer?

AIn fact there are many tips for an aspiring photographer.
My main advice would be to always look for interesting light, colour, shapes and angles while wandering in nature. It is amazing how many people do not see the beauty of a specific place by simply passing by without noticing it.
My second tip is to look for simple and clean subjects: Less is More!

'One of my favourite pictures I have uploaded to Picfair is “Winter Solitude”. This picture was taken in my neighbourhood during winter. I love that season because snow and fog help to simplify and minimise the elements, creating a powerful feeling for the viewer. Winter days that combine these two elements are a wonderful playground for me, although these moments are unfortunately not so common these days. Exploring such opportunities is a matter of going out driving, and hiking in order to find a good spot. The fog adds an extra element to the quest because it makes nature change every minute.'

'When God is playing with the light and wind above Iceland...This is the kind of weather I like because it could lead to fantastic scenes. In some places the light was breaking through the deep clouds and illuminating parts of the landscape below. The detailed clouds here add drama to the scene.' Read less

'I have wonderful memories of this image. I was standing alone on this road just before sunrise, the temperature was -14°C! My thumbs were frozen even though I was wearing gloves. In that kind of situation, you just tend to forget about the negative aspects and concentrate on the fabulous opportunity you have by being there and fully appreciating the scene on your own.'

'Over a cliff in Iceland. This place was just amazing with plenty of crashing waves and dramatic clouds. The conditions were very difficult for taking long exposures as a terrible wind was blowing, along with episodic rain making the gear and the photographer wet.It was a real challenge to try to protect the camera from shaking and the water.'

'Don't think I moved the stones myself in order to align them for an interesting picture! Jokes aside, the line formed by the stones makes a nice invitation to press the shutter. I took a long exposure to ensure the water was still. This helps the viewer to concentrate on the main subject without being distracted by the ripples of the water. Long exposure also allows you to create minimalist and tranquil shots that have more impact.' Read less
