Here is our interview with the photographer, Gina -
Briefly describe what you make?
I shoot photography in black and white as well as color. My photos range from architecture to nature to anything that really catches my eye.
What mediums do you enjoy working in most?
My favorite thing lately has been black and white photos with a splash of color. I like to hand color a photo when I can. Other times I will use Photoshop to get that color to pop.
How long have you been creating craft?
The minute I developed my own film and made my own prints in high school, I was hooked. I loved that I could take something from start to finish by myself. So, that makes it about 12 years.
How did you get started?
I guess this question can be answered in the question before. That would be high school.
Where does the name of your shop come from?
I'm more of a visual person and less of a words person. So the name of my shop is just my name and what I do: Ginaphoto.
What would you most want people to know about your work?
I have a different perspective on things. I hear a lot of people say "I never would have thought to take that" or "You definitely have an eye for things". I love that. I love taking the ordinary everyday things and looking at them differently and putting that in a photo.
What words of advice do you have for other artists?
Words of advice would definitely be to keep trying and to get yourself out there. I kept thinking that people would just find me, which in some cases is true. But you really have to put yourself out there to get noticed.
What is not said in words, Gina says with her photos. Come and take a look at her shop and see her work. It is not the same old, same old.
