Interview: Photographer Roy Lemme (Germany)

20 May 2020

Can you tell us a little about you?

My name is Roy Lemme, I have been happily married to my dear Steffi for a very long time and have two wonderful daughters! These are the most important things in my life! Then comes the art - the artistic creation in my life. Until the twenties it was drawing, later the production of electronic music and since about 15 years digital photography and image editing. Always wanted (better) I had to express myself.

 

How and when did you get into photography?

I started with photography in the late 80s. Analog and with developing in the darkroom!  I have been taking digital photos for about 15 years now.

 

What does photography mean to you?         

This process of developing the image is for me internally the same as the process of digital post-processing. The way is the goal for me! The creative process is the satisfaction! 

 

Please briefly describe your photography style for our reader.

The focus of my pictures is always the human being. I have become more and more a portrait photographer.    I am not such a great photographer from a technical point of view. My passion is more the digital postproduction or the digital process to edit the picture in a way that my idea becomes reality. I would also like to work with elaborate sets, costumes and make-up. But this is too expensive and takes a lot of time - so I try to create it digitally later. "Art does not reproduce the visible, but makes visible!" - Paul Klee

 

Where do you get inspiration from?

Since I am not fixed on a certain style, I take inspirations from different artists, forms, colours, textures, from the lighting of the paintings of the old masters. Of course some of it comes from my inner self, but that is only the input of my perception stored in my brain! In the last year I have technically refined a style „MovingPixels“ I call it. It is my recognition feature and unique in this way.

 

Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?

Partly yes and partly no. This is also a question of time when working with the model and the possibilities in the studio. But it's getting more and more, but that's a logical development process over the years.

 

Studio, on location or both?

Definitely stuido!

 

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

I am a hobbyist who can do what he wants without pressure!

 

What has been your most memorable session and why?

Oh, it's not so easy to answer... I think it was my "first time!" My first time in a studio with a flashlight set and model. From that day on I was infected!

 

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

I have been using Canon technology for about 30 years.  At the moment it is a 5D Mark III, but I usually use a Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0 L IS II USM as lens. But it’s not important for my workflow.

 

What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?

I can't give you any tips on the business, but I can give you tips on photography: understand the technique, school your eye, learn from the best and then ... do your own thing!

 

What do you think of our new magazine?

The quality of the presented photographers is very good. Great pictures with a short biographical profile of the artist I like very much. Thank you very much for your invitation!
