Interview with Florent Chouffot

Interviews

12 February 2016

Posted by Anna Fraser

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

I'm Florent, from France, CEO of a company that sells ergonomic cushions and seats online, and amateur photographer since the early 2000s. Nature is my favorite subject.

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

ANot sure it qualifies as 'weird', but; I was in the forest trying to photograph a beautiful dragonfly that flew in circles over a puddle, but it simply never landed on anything. I started to get a bit frustrated about it. After about one hour she finally decided to land... on my shoulder. That was the straw that broke the camel's back, and I gave up :).

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

AI'm using two cameras at the moment: a Sigma dp0 Quattro (a wide-angle, fixed-lens and fixed-focal-length camera), and a Nikon D750 with a macro lens. Having fewer lenses is better for me. I prefer trying to get the best out of two prime lenses rather than covering all possible focal lengths with a bunch of optics. I think this approach yields better composed images. There's a lot to be done even with a 'mere' 50mm lens. I also often find myself in situations where I'd have to swap lenses frequently to get the images I want - i.e. when there's frost all around, the small details may be just as interesting as the wide view, so having two cameras is handy.

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

ATry to avoid GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome!), and instead, focus on practising with one or two prime lenses. Shoot as much as you can so that using your gear becomes second nature... and train your eye, and find your style.

My favourite pic is 'Butterflies in flight'. The image was taken during a very pleasant walk in the outdoors with my girlfriend. I liked how the butterflies frolicked around the... Read more

An airshow in Luxeuil, France, in June 2015. The planes are the 'Frecce Tricolori' - the aerobatic demonstration team in the Italian Air Force. The smoke, the sun, and the great acrobatics made for a nice scene, so I quickly grabbed the wide-angle lens and took the shot. This is a wide view of a flat, distant scene, with smoke and atmospheric haze all over. The back-and-white rendering helps give the image more depth and visual impact. Read less

This is from a carnivorous plant called the king sundew (Drosera regia). The leaf is covered with sticky glands that attract, catch and digest small insects like flies and mosquitoes.The pictured portion is around 0.5 inches across, so I used a reversed wide-angle lens to photograph it. It's a way to achieve greater magnification than with most macro lenses. Read less

A close-up view of a leaf of a venus flytrap - by far the most well-known carnivorous plant. The diffused background is a mix of coloured leaves, giving the image a peculiar look.
