Interview: Photographer Marlena Welc (Poland)

Can you tell us a little about you?

I am a graphic designer by profession, and photography is my hobby which allows me to realize myself. I also run Photoshop and lighting courses in my studio. Many years of experience allows me to achieve an effect in photos that is a problem for someone.

How and when did you get into photography?

In 2014 I bought my first professional camera and went to my first photography workshop. This is where my adventure with photography began.

What does photography mean to you?

Meeting new people with whom I have a great time. With the help of photography, I am able to implement my ideas by giving them colors that suits me. I can create reality and that's the coolest thing about it.

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I like portrait art in studio the most. Flash light gives me many possibilities. I go outdoors less frequently, but sometimes I have to when I see beautiful flowers or meadow, I know that I want to do a session there.

Where do you get inspiration from?

I make up most of it myself, sometimes at night when I can't fall asleep, the best ideas come to my mind. Sometimes I look at Pinterest and sometimes I’m inspired by music video or film.

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

Yes, my photo is planned from the beginning to the end. Creation, makeup and place are always selected in advance and matched to the model.

Studio, on location or both?

I like both the outdoors and the studio, but I still prefer the studio because I have everything at hand.

What has been your most memorable session and why?

I used to do a session in a hangar where a plane was standing. I liked this session very much. The model was perfectly prepared and the scenes were like those from a movie “Pearl Harbor”.

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

Photography is still more of a hobby for me.

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Nikon d850 and favorite lenses are Sigma Art 50 mm and Nikon 105

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

That he should approach the learning of processing programs and be aware that with such a program he can achieve a lot in his photos
