Hi Janne! Tell us about yourself in two sentences - who are you?
I’m just a normal office worker interested in photography. I tend to have long streaks when I don’t do much photography and then when I get inspired again I’ll produce quite a lot of content in a short period of time. Normally I get my inspiration from travelling and exploring nature. Recently I did a 3 week road trip in New Zealand which was absolutely amazing!
QWhat's the weirdest situation you've found yourself in while taking a photograph?
AOne time, while trying to learn astrophotography, we had a very curious audience. There were two donkeys at an estate and one of them kept walking into my frame. There were some pretty hilarious photos with nice star trails and the ghost of a donkey head in the middle of everything. The results were very artsy.
QWhat do you shoot on? What's your favourite set up?
AI have my trustworthy Canon 5D MkIII with few lenses, the 35mm F1.4 Art Sigma lens probably being one of my favourites. It creates super sharp photos and it's excellent in low light. Last year I found very good deal for a Samyang 14mm F2.8 lens during the Amazon black Friday deals. Considering the price, it’s an excellent lens and you can get some very creative shots with it.
QWhat's your number one tip for an aspiring photographer?
AGet your gear out and try to figure out what inspires you. Do stuff that YOU like, don’t try to please other people with your content. If you do stuff that you love, others will love it too =)
