Hi Everyone ,
Today we are featuring an interview with: Magda@magda_djm.
We are very thankful to her for accepting our invitation. She has been featured, numerous times in our hub and many other noted hubs. Her black and white gallery is full of strong story telling compositions and very moody. She is also an editor for mobile photography magazine. We would highly recommend to visit her gallery for learning and inspiration.
Much thanks to Marta (@marta_spencer) for conducting the interview.
So let's get started with a beautiful person and her amazing work.The interview has two parts.
#. Where do you live?
I was born & raised in Poland, but from 20 years I've been based on Ibiza — a small Spanish island in the Mediterranean Sea — where I spend most of my time.
Ibiza is a very special place, a place where many cultures mix as people come from all over the world.
#. What is your profession?
I’m mathematician, but the last years I work in tourism.
#. Have you taken any photography lessons?
If watching some YouTube videos channels or CreativeLive counts - yes I did & I’m still doing... .
#. When do you know you have the right shot?
Let’s say I don’t create ready pictures in my head. I don’t think about the images before I see them. I simply follow the rhythm of the place, observing the surroundings and wait what it brings...There are so many ways to tell stories through pictures, I try to find my own.
# Do you go out shooting alone?
Depends...The fact that your phone is always with you is a big advantage. You are ready to photograph any situation in any moment.
#. Your gallery appears to be only black-and-white photos, would you like to talk about it?
At the beginning there was a challenge - try to see very sunny, full of colors island in spectrum of grays...but I really love & enjoy black and white photography.
