New Zealand D-Photo - - CONTENTS - /m de wit pho­tog­ra­phy

NIKON D7200, 105MM, 1/250S, F/7, ISO 100 Ma­rina has al­ways been fond of the old mas­ters, but she found that paint­ing wasn’t her call­ing. Dis­cov­er­ing the joys of pho­tog­ra­phy four years ago, she repli­cates in her pho­tographs some of the qual­i­ties she en­joys in paint­ings. While this par­tic­u­lar flower lacks the clean lines of your pic­ture-post­card tulip, Ma­rina told us that she strives to find some­thing unique about her sub­jects. She isn’t some­body who is drawn to tak­ing por­traits of peo­ple, and this fo­cus on im­per­fec­tions and dif­fer­ences works to im­bue her sub­jects with per­son­al­ity and an in­di­vid­u­al­ism not al­ways present in your stan­dard flower snap.
