Interview with Rachel Husband

Interviews

08 July 2016

Posted by Sally Hart

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

I'm a professional photographer and part time actor and model (if you can believe that) in Bristol, UK, so happiest either side of a camera really! My favourite photography is landscape but I pretty much photograph anything and can often be found photographing things around the house for stock library work.

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

AHonestly I can't think of anything 'weird' - though once I've written this I will miraculously come up with at least six examples, which totally elude me now!

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

AI use Nikon camera and lenses. At the moment I'm using the D7200 and my go to lens is my 17-55mm 2.8 which pretty much lives on my camera. I guess second to that would by my 105mm 2.8 macro lens, then the 70-200mm f4 (I much prefer it to the 2.8 which i traded in for the f4). I also couldn't live without a remote control which I use for still life, and landscapes, and I'm a massive fan of bracketing as I'm too lazy these days to use filters plus it's also much quicker than putting filters on in the field.

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

ADo I have to pick 'one' ????
READ your camera manual! You'll be surprised what you can learn from reading the manual - you learn things that you didn't know your camera could do and you'll want to take more pics as a result of it!
My other one (yes, I know you only asked for one) is to take pics of EVERYTHING - don't specialise until you know your camera inside out and know all the rules and when to break them. So often I see people buy a DSLR and just do portrait, thinking they can make some quick money. But their pictures are often not very good, because they don't know the basics and no idea how to 'see' things to get the best picture.

'Asking me to pick just one favourite? That's mean!! How can I pick one? So I'm going to pick two.<br>Dog with new toy is my personal favourite … because it's my beautiful and photogenic dog Maddie. Unfortunately I lost her a couple of years ago, but this SO epitomised her. She would pick up the biggest thing she could find with ease, be it a car tyre, or a massive log. In fact this picture (cropped to a square format) is now hanging on my office wall. This was also taken in Scotland (one of my favourite places) which also has some of the most beautiful beaches, and on a nice sunny day as well! Yes they do have some good weather up there.'

'My second one is probably the one I'm most proud of and that's the Brush Fire near Lairg.</br>This was taken just outside Lairg in Sutherland, North Scotland after spending the day at Balnakeil Bay, and dropping by Loch Stack, Loch More and Loch Shin on the way back to the holiday cottage. I couldn't believe my luck as I had already taken some great images all on the same day! On the way home to the cottage we were staying in we could smell smoke and remember thinking someone must have a large bonfire going. Then we literally drove round a bend in the road and saw the hill fires! Never seen the like in Scotland, so pulled up and shot this. It was literally like something you'd see on the news! It was about 7.30pm and the light was fading fast so I took a number of images on the tripod. The exposure was a problem because of the very bright and dark areas, so I bracketed the images and blended them together in photoshop to get a true image of what I'd seen. A lot of the exposures were up to 3 seconds long and I included the pylon to give a sense of magnitude. And why am I so proud of it … because it won an award in the Scottish Nature Photography awards and went on tour all round Scotland.' Read less

'Another photo whilst holidaying around Scotland (which I might add is a fantastic country for photographing). This is the road in Glen Docherty to Kinlochewe and without doubt is probably the best winding road in the whole of the UK. I can't pretend to say I did something special with this image. I stopped in the viewpoint area to take this and took a number of images. I edited one in landscape format and another in portrait, but this one has sold a number of times, mainly to newspapers. It's great picture (even if I say so myself) of the Scottish landscape, encompassing lochs, and mountains … and whilst you can't see in this photo, there are nearly always deer looking down on you in this Glen.'

'I went out in bluebell season with the aim of getting a great bluebell shot. I've seen some great images, so I wanted to capture one of my own. Not as easy as you think either! Spent hours driving around - either they looked too sparse, or the light was coming from the wrong direction. Eventually found this near Symonds Yat, Herefordshire and knew I'd found the image I wanted. I've a lot of bluebell pics but this is my favourite one. It's got a beautiful ethereal quality to it.'

'Another selling image of mine. Moonlit reflection in Brecon Beacons, at Talybont reservoir. I don't often do night photography, and have to admit I didn't on this one!! Sorry folks! This was an image that I played around with afterwards and considered making it black and white. I randomly tried a midnight filter on a photoshop plug in, and I have to say it worked perfectly! I've tried using it before but never had results that seemed realistic to me. So, there you have it. Although I do also have a landscape image of the same reservoir, taken mid afternoon that I'm looking at on my desk as I write this …. as it's the July picture of my calendar. But sometimes it's about making the most of the photos you've taken. I tried something out on one of the images I'd taken and it worked. If it works go with it, you'll instinctively know when it does!' Read less

'I LOVE this image. One of my early macro images and my first foray into pet photography. This is 'Dorothy' and belongs to my sister. I wanted to photograph her as she has different coloured eyes, a condition known as heterochromia. She was lying on a pink fluffy bed in a bay window, and i often refer to it as 'cat doing yoga!' The net curtains in the background came out with a blue tinge to them, which I left because it looked like blue sky and made a great contrast to the pink. I have a series of Dorothy pictures, who made a great subject that day, but this is my favourite one.' Read less
