This was one class that really inspired me and truly helped me create my websites www.BackonCrack.com & www.BeMegaa.com both site were used for two different reasons the first one mainly for class work and the second for my personal project even tho i syndicated all the work from my personal one to the class website. … Continue reading Final Days

This was one class that really inspired me and truly helped me create my websites www.BackonCrack.com & www.BeMegaa.com

both site were used for two different reasons the first one mainly for class work and the second for my personal project even tho i syndicated all the work from my personal one to the class website.

i wanted both sites easy to navigate and not to many pages to travel between, i always find less to be more thats why i have all the blog post living on the main page for easy access

every time i look at the sites it bring a tear to my eyes

Its something I’ve always wanted to do. In the past i have created websites thru Square Space but the turn out wasn’t the same. i wasn’t nowhere near as pleased with my Square Space site compared to my WordPress one.

 

besides building the site itself i worked on  a couple rotoscopes

i designed my logo

and also created many gifs. most of which came from one of my favorite you-tubers

but besides all of that my main focus was on my personal site, www.BeMegaa.com

thats a project i started in attempts to showcase many different forms of art, either it be fashion, photography, paintings or film. since the beginning of that project ive held one event called The Flee Market  and that event was meant to showcase up and coming fashion brands and on May 21 i have an event called Eye & I. This event is a photography exhibit showcasing many different styles.

this is something i plan on doing for as long as possible, i love working people and this platform allows me to inspire people to continue working on what they love because now they know their work is being seen my hundreds.

How did you into photography?
I got into photography when I was 15 and had the option to take an intro class in high school. I’d been writing music and playing guitar for a while, but felt like i needed to explore other artistic outlets. After my first week, I’d realized that it was something I wanted to continue doing. It gave me a certain freedom that i’d fallen in love.
 
What do you consider your photography style to be?
I do product photography for a living. I photograph garments for the website of a company in Long Island, but I try to experiment with all different styles leisurely. I focus on portraits and street photography, though. Capturing people’s essence or getting a good candid of someone is always exciting.
What camera do you use?
I use a Canon Rebel T3. It came with a macro lens, so I try to take advantage of that and take close up portraits and shots.
Do you have a preference when it comes to working with digital or film camera?
I wouldn’t say I have a preference, since they’re both used differently. Digital cameras are convenient, as they allow me to see the pictures immediately, gives me a chance to capture multiple shots of the same thing, pick the best one and manipulate the photo in every way possible through photoshop. Whereas, when i shoot with a film camera, I am limited with my film so a lot more concentration goes into getting the perfect shot in that moment. With film you have this relaxing and sometimes tedious time in the darkroom that allows you to manipulate the photo in a more tangible and raw way. I alternate between cameras depending on the style and aesthetic I’m trying to create.
What is your favorite thing to shoot?
I think my favorite thing to shoot are portraits; Whether I am manipulating the lighting, scenery, and theme of a photoshoot, or bringing my camera with me on different adventures. I’m able to capture the emotions and reality of the people I surround myself with. I also always get to talking to people when I photograph them, and It becomes an enriching experience both artistically and emotionally for everyone. I like helping people feel beautiful and love themselves. Sometimes when you capture a great picture of someone, you see that smile of their face and it’s just a good feeling.
Walk me thru a day in the life of Natalia with his camera, like what triggers you to turn on your camera and take a picture?
Depending on what I’m doing I decide if i want to bring my camera. I try to bring it with me everywhere I go since you never know when inspiration might strike. I find beauty in everything, so I end up taking 400 pictures on one escapade and have so many shots to choose from at the end of the day. I would say my own curiosity triggers me to take pictures.  I experiment with the different ways I can shoot the same thing or person.
What do you draw inspiration from or is there anybody or anything that influences you? 
I draw inspiration from a lot of artists I’ve found through social media — Instagram, blogs, tumblr. They all have different styles, so I’m constantly inspired by their work. My favorite IG account is @way2inspire which shows some amazing shots by various artists around the world.
 
From looking at your work i notice that you like to include a lot of vibrant colors, is there any specific reason why?
No specific reason, honestly. It’s a stage I’ve been going through, manipulating colors in my shots. I think I’m going to transition into black and white portraits next and experiment with more heavily photoshopped surrealism.

What was it that got you into photography?

I got into photography as a by product of working on creativity. I began to notice that a lot of the characters that I created in my short stories were very similar to one another; so I decided to pick up a camera and walk around the city and take pictures of people or anything that caught my eye and I  would write short stories based on the pictures. Slowly over time I developed a passion for just capturing a moment, and now I bring a camera along everywhere I go.

What camera do you use?

I use two different cameras: Nikon D3200 (A few difference lenses) and a Nikon Fe2. 

What is your preference when it comes to working with digital and film cameras?

I use each camera for very specific things. I use my film camera (Nikon Fe2) to shoot people, it’s less intimidating when you can’t see the image that you captured of someone, and I use my digital camera to shoot landscapes. 

What is your favorite thing to shoot?

I enjoy shooting street photography because living in NYC there is no limit to what you can see and what you can take.

I see both photography and videography as ways for one to express themselves, what made you choose one over the other?

I picked photography because I wanted to expand upon one idea, concept, or image. It was about creating a story and seeing how far it can go. But I do hope to one day take transition into videography, because it is easier to convey a story to an audience. 

 Walk me thru a day in the life of Diego Campoverde with his camera, like what triggers you to turn on your camera and take a picture?

This is difficult to answer. I think that what really triggers me to turn on my camera and shoot is capturing an image that everyone would otherwise miss.

What do you draw inspiration from or is there anybody or anything that influences you? 

Most of my inspiration comes from Directors – Guy Richie, David Fincher, David Lynch, etc. They are able to combine so many basic concepts to create entire worlds that take you away to other places, even if for just an hour or two.
