It is my pleasure and honour to introduce you Ovi D. Pop in the interview below!
My most important prize was winning first place in the abstract category at the first edition of the Drone Awards, 2018, in Siena. Being the first edition of this category, the winning photos were broadcasted on many media channels, including CNN or CBS.
I would definitely like to mention here the photography on the street. It is fundamentally different from the studio one, because here the model does not necessarily interact with the photographer. In this type of photography the skills of the photographer in handling the camera, a good lens and the presence of spirit of the one behind the lens are the key ingredients for success!
Where do you look for to find inspiration for the stories you want to convey with your portraiture works? What inspires you?
The success of model shooting sessions depends heavily on the model skills, on one hand, but also on your 'stage director' skills, on the other hand. How do you manage to successfully communicate with the models, to make them fit in your story and to get the most of the mood from their performance in front of the camera?
As a nude photographer I consider that the first award-winning nude is more difficult to create; then the rest comes naturally... It is difficult to create your own style, I try to use my models in various geometric fantasies. When I shoot, I often start from certain ideas, but for the most part I improvise. Then the best photos come out!
My advice for any photographer artist, and not only, is to stay on his path, to appreciate the work of others and always remember that art is not measured in centimetres: everything is subjective in this area. With a positive thinking and openness that characterizes me, I have chosen many friends, both virtual and real, whom I am honoured to know and admire very much.
