Inspiration: Anna Theodora, Photographer
An article by April 23, 2011on
A few years ago I became friends on Flickr with a photographer from Brazil named Anna Theodora (Caution, she does have some suggestive work in her feed.). I was really impressed with her use of existing light, it seemed as if the most natural thing for her to do with a camera was see the way light worked and then capture it. Some people are like that, others require years of study. But I watched her style progress, and her abilities improve. In my opinion, I think she’s a great inspiration to photographers and non-photographers alike.
Recently I asked her a few questions about her photography and she kindly responded.
How long have you been taking photos, and how did you get your start?
I started to take photos in 2006, when I lived in London for 3 months. I was just lucky guessing my photos, I really didn’t know anything about real photography, but some did come out nicely 🙂
How do you describe your personal style of photography?
hahahaha I wouldn’t know how to describe my style… romantic, maybe?
What inspires you on a shoot?
That depends on my mood on the day, also most times the ideas just come to mind at the time.
Do you have a favorite photographer?
No, I don’t have one favorite photographer. There are dozens that I truly admire!
What kind of gear do you use? Is there anything that you couldn’t live without?
I use a Canon T1i, the kit lens 18-55mm and a 50mm 1.4. At the moment I don’t have anything that I couldn’t absolutely live without…
What advice would you give to other photographers, especially those just starting out?
Draw a contract. Always.
