I have been following Sophies blog for a very long time. For someone who takes so many photos, she has both quality and quantity. Her photographs range from portraits, self portraits, landscapes and food! I asked Sophie a couple of questions here they are.
Well oh well! I am Sophie, I’m 18 years old and am currently studying a bachelor of Photography at Griffith’s Queensland College of Art (I’m in my second year). My practice basically is just my life translated into photographs. I obsessively document my outings with my friends and then use self portraits as a means of expressing myself and my emotions. It’s a bit of a cathartic process, actually! Anyway, I shall stop rambling and let you check out my stuff for yourself! I post all my photos to my blog: http://sensing-owls.blogspot.com/
and you could see a mixture of my stuff plus what inspires me on my tumblr: http://nevereverdid.tumblr.com/
My first camera was a penguin shaped film camera that I got when I was 9! I was living in Portugal at the time and thought it was possibly the best thing ever. My first ‘proper’ camera, however, was a Nikon D40 which I got when I was 15 for my birthday! Not quite as cool as a penguin camera but certainly a lot more sophisticated, haha.
Ideally, I would like to exhibit them! Having my own gallery is a bit of a dream of mine. It’d also be quite nice to sell some and have them on peoples’ walls at home.
I have a couple favourites actually! At the moment I’ve been really getting into using the Colorpack II. It’s a plastic camera from the late 60s and takes pull apart instant film! Which is great and it’s super easy to do double exposures, too! On a more serious note, I have also been using a Flexaret medium format camera which I’ve also been enjoying immensely. It’s a square format camera and produces really large negatives and is therefore really good quality. I’m quite enjoying the challenge of having to frame everything to a square.
Oh no! This is probably the hardest question yet! I have got to say that one of my favourites is definitely white chocolate. I quite like coconut too, but I find that ice cream is always better when you mix two flavours! I think my favourite flavour combo is white chocolate and butter scotch.
