What is the best part of being a mobile photographer?
The best part of being a mobile photographer is that you always carry a camera with you. Even when it rains you can pop it out quickly. It's lightweight and makes really sharp photos.
What is your mobile device and favourite apps?
For the last two years I have been using my Samsung S7 Edge smartphone. I use three apps and most of the time, I do everything in Snapseed. It's magic what you can do with this app haha. I do most of my edits in Snapseed and use the other two apps for their filters.
How would you describe your style?
I think they are small paintings. I always wanted to paint but what I want and what I see never becomes alive on canvas. When I am editing a photo it feels like I am painting. I always love the fall of the light and brightness in photos. That's what I try to catch when I shoot and edit the photo.
How do you find and decide your subjects and stories to photograph?
I always catch what's in front of me everyday. It started as a part of a photographing challenge but I still keep doing it. I have learned that there is always something to shoot a picture from.
What are your top three tips for creating your photos, rather than capturing a happy snap?
I enjoy the process of taking photos. I like challenges to learn more and more, so I joined several photo groups. It makes me happy to see the end result.
Do you have a typical capturing and editing process?
I want the subject to really be the main subject. I want vibrant colours; feel it's vibes and brightness. So I play with all the possibilities on Snapseed, till I have the right vibe which I like. I work a lot with the 'Brush' and 'Stacks'.
Something you are still learning?
I learn every day. I follow different kinds of photo groups, where I pick up photo tips - especially also from Mike in the Smartphone Photography Training Community. I watch other photographers, who inspire me and experiment with photo apps to try something new.
