A photographer, I am not. A photographer, Holly is!

A photographer, I am not. A photographer, Holly is!

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of attending a gallery viewing of a friend of mine who has an up-and-coming photography business, which just so happens to also be her passion!

The theme of the gallery was “One with Nature,” and I completely fell in love with the concept and the resulting art. She took pictures of body parts and superimposed them with pictures of natural elements.

See, she's way better at this than me.

I also got a chance to speak with her briefly, which is always a good time in and of itself!

What equipment do you use?

I use a Nikon D90 with a wide variety of lenses. It’s a mid-grade camera, which fits my hands comfortable.

Which lens is your favorite?

The wide-angle lens. It gives me the option to distort, so I can play with images, making them look realistic, or more surreal.

What do you take with you to a shoot?

All of my equipment fits in my backpack, so all I have to leave behind is my mind! It’s more fun that way!

What is your favorite piece?

From this gallery, the fire hands [bottom row, middle-right in the arrangement shown above]. Of all my work, my tattoo book [Seen here].

And finally, who inspires you? 

Man Ray and Keith Carter.
