Name- Ana Vera
Where are you from?- Venezuela, Mcbo.
Your equipment- an Olympus IS20, Minolta srt-100 and for the few digital shots I take a small Lumix.
Influences and photographers you like- There are so many photographers I admire not only for their technique but for everything their work evokes, some of them are: Lina Scheynius, Katherine Squier, Sophie Curtis, Jocelyn Catterson, Hannah and Landon Metz, Margaret Durow, Christian Pitschl (crush) and Aimee Broudeur. From Venezuela I'd have to say Florencia Alvarado. (notice how most of them are girls and around my same age)
A little about you- I am in love with shooting film, from the aesthetics to the weight of the camera, nothing compares. For some reason I seem to take my time with it, It'll usually take me from 1 to 2 months to get the 36 shots.
What I look for the most is not getting the perfect light, right angle or focus, but to show a feeling. The idea of writing about me and showcasing my emotions on blogs all over the internet makes me cringe, so i just shoot what I'd like to say, that's how I started doing my "palabra del día" (word of the day) project, most of the words represent something I was feeling o going trough on each given day. I'm a student right now and I'm working as an english teacher.
