Interview with Ayo Odumade

Interviews

29 May 2015

Posted by Sally Hart

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

I’m a 31 year old Financial Analyst who knows he’s in the wrong job! The reason for this is my passion for photography which, for the last 4 years has been a gift and a curse.

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

AIt was a few months before the London Olympics and unbeknownst to a friend and I, security had been heightened around the Westminster area. We were taking a few long exposure shots of the London Eye at around 1am in the morning. Everything was going well until we started to pack up and make our way home. We were stopped by a heavily armed (but friendly) officer who wanted to know what the purpose of our pictures was. Apparently the threat level of terrorism had been increased and officers were monitoring people carrying backpacks and suspicious equipment. Looking back I can see why we may have been seen a little suspect, both 6’2, wearing dark clothing, carrying tripods & camera bags... We were kept for about 45mins while background checks were done on us and ultimately it all ended well.

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

AI currently shoot with the Canon 5D Mark III and have two (in my opinion) quality lenses. The Sigma 50mm f1.4 DG HSM Art & Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8 L Mark II USM. I mainly use the prime for portraits and social events. My favourite set-up is using the 16-35 for Landscape shots either during the day but mainly at night. I love capturing London buildings at night with all the lights and movement you get from the sky while using a slow shutter speed.

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

ADon’t take constructive criticism personally as hard as it will be. It’s very easy to lose confidence if you don’t get the response/feedback you were hoping for. The challenge is to know what you want and stay true to yourself. Photography is a very competitive career path just like many others. Therefore you’ll need a tough chin because it will get knocked from time to time.

'My favourite pic has to be Canary Wharf on a Spring Evening. I had seen similar shots of Canary Wharf on various different sites, but couldn’t find where the view was from. I used google maps to pinpoint where it may have been from and narrowed location down to Canada Water. So I grabbed my camera gear and set off at 9pm on my bike. Once I got to the station, the next challenge was to find where the view was from. I cycled for over an hour searching and then with some luck ended up at a housing development that had the view I was looking for. I’ll never forget the feeling of relief when I found it, I think I may have screamed “yes”. Anyway, I set up camp along the railings and took countless long exposure shots. The one I uploaded was shot in bulb mode with an exposure time of 70 seconds. I love the stillness of the water and the view point which makes it seem I was in the water too.' Read less

'I had heard about this art piece installed in my local area by Argentinian artist Leandro Erlich. A giant mirror had but erected at an angle over a sculpture of a house. People were encouraged to lie horizontally on the ground. The reflections give the impression they are standing on, suspended from, or scaling the building vertically. It was a relatively easy shot to take and my favourite pose is of the guy holding the woman’s hair.' Read less

'This is one of the very first pictures I took with my Canon 5D Mark II. I was in New York and decided to go out for a walk on the first night. I set up my camera on the sidewalk, dialed in the settings and walked onto the street hoping for some cars to speed past in the 20 second time frame I had. I remember thinking to myself “keep still until you hear the shutter open”. It’s one of my favourite pictures but I know if I took it again today it would be even better.' Read less

'I couldn’t sleep so I decided to take my camera and go for a ride on my bike. This was taken at a point I pass while cycling to work. I thought I’d experiment with one of my bike lights attached to the back wheel while in motion and using long exposure on my camera. If there was a fourth street light on the front wheel, it would be quite a symmetrical shot.' Read less

'This was taken at a friend’s Walima Ceremony. The bride’s hands were covered in a beautiful Henna style tattoo, so I thought it would be a nice idea to make a heart shape with them. I liked the bokeh created by her outfit which was out of focus. I wasn’t the official photographer at the ceremony but according to the couple, they preferred my pictures which I was very surprised with.' Read less

'I climbed 311 steps of the Monument Column hoping to take some handheld shots of the city views from the balcony. However I was met with a metal mesh covering with holes too small to get my lens through. I managed to get this shot by pushing my lens as much as I could through one of the gaps. I don’t think it turned out too bad considering.' Read less
