Photographer Q&A: Photographers around the world.

I decided to feature different photographers from around the world, both pros and amateurs like myself. I believe this will give photographers the opportunity to showcase their work and widen their audience. For those who wants to be featured here, please don`t hesitate to contact me at my email address. Pros and amateurs are both welcome to join and post here.

I will do this using Q&A style. I will start it myself, hoping others will follow.

Photographer Q&A

1. Firstly, tell us a little something about yourself.

Hi, my name is Alex. I am a photography enthusiast based in Bangkok, Thailand. I am originally from Philippines but I moved to Bangkok because of work.

2. What is your background in photography and how long have you been doing this?

I started as a self taught photographer and recently got my self certified in digital photography. I have been learning and shooting for about two years now.

3.What equipment  do you use to shoot?

I own a Fujifilm HS20EXR bridge camera and a Nikon D3100 with its kit lens (18-55) and a 35mm 1.8G prime lens. I also own two Yongnou strobes,which I am using as an off camera lights. I also have a few filters that I use with me sometimes. And of course, a tripod.

Edited: Recently acquired a Fujifilm X100.

4.What are your favorite subjects to shoot? And why?

I love to take environmental portraits and landscapes simply because I love to meet a lot of people

and I love to travel and immerse myself in nature.

5. What software do you use to process your photos?

I am mainly using Photoshop CS6 for my post processing. Sometimes I only use any photo editing software available if I only need to re-size or crop my photos.

6. Can you show us your most favorite work and tell us a little bit of something about it?

Here's a photo of my wife I took in a park in Bangkok. I have been learning portraits photography lately and I consider this as one of my first good photo. I know it is not that much, but as an amateur trying to learn, this is an accomplishment for me.

Thank you.
