Karolina of @intothegreen8 was our featured artist for the {Story Telling} theme. Story Telling is such an art, and I wanted to learn more about Karolina and her photography journey.

I hope you enjoy her story as much as I have.

Tell us a bit about yourself? And, are you a hobbyist or a pro?

I was interested in photography since I remember. It was my dad’s big hobby and he’s naturally passed it to me, creating the memories of developing films together or wandering outdoors with me and my brother and talking about photography. I am trying to make it more than a hobby which isn’t easy with the current situation in the world.

Tell us a bit about your photography gear. What is the lens you do not have but you desire to have the most?

I use Canon 6d with prime Sigma lenses, 85 mm, 35 mm and I have recently purchased 105 mm. It was my big dream for a while so I am really satisfied with my gear for now.

Describe your style of work and how you found your style.

I think it’s an ongoing process, I am developing my style constantly. I am mostly shooting outdoors, always chasing the light and trying to capture emotions and connection either between subjects, subject and enviroment or my connection with people I photograph. I love candid unposed shots and during family sessions I tend to talk a lot and make people laugh.

Are you a creative person, ….. have you always been creative, ….what inspires your creativity?

I was always trying to express myself through art. Since I was little I was always sketching and drawing or simply making things. I can’t imagine my life without creating, it seems pretty natural to me. I am being inspired by nature, my kids, dreams and other artists.

Who is your favorite photographer, living or dead?

There are so many photographers whose work I admire that it would be unfair if I mention just one.

What is your favorite quote?

I don’t really have one favorite.
