- "Expose" article's aim is to uncover talented photographers who contribute to the deviantART community. I will be writing future Interviews with many photographers who deserve the extra recognition, and not just for their photography, but for their continual efforts and contributions to dA. This means that they have inspired many others with their works, helped them, critiqued, and so much more. Many of us could learn a few things from these deviants, and I will be interviewing each one of them to find out about their skills, inspiration of their own, and advice they have for aspiring photographers (such as myself). I am also taking requests, so feel free to note me if you know of a photographer who really does deserve an interview! For this article of Expose, I have chosen tracieteephotography to interview and find out more about her! We see her amazing works in her gallery, yet we often forget the influences, inspiration, ideas and personality behind the deviant. I am very pleased to do this interview with Tracie, she is a full time mum, worker, photographer, artist, deviant and more. I hope you enjoy finding out more about her, like I have! What made you join the dA community? My sister told me about dA saying that you can display your work to so many other people so I ended up taking a look then hit the join button and that was around 190weeks ago this week
wow time flies
All of your photography has a positive feel to it, what inspires you to bring positivity to your photographs?
I feel I capture a lot of my childhood memories though my daughters as they grow up into little ladies. They bring back so many wonderful memories but with that also come the sad ones as well and you can see this at times in my photos. I just love to capture moments in life and freeze them for ever for all to look back on and remember and smile and sometimes even cry. Where do you get your ideas from, with your photographs? I have some pretty wild dreams so I may wake up in the early hours with my brain ticking over time thinking of how I can recreate that image and feeling that was so strong in my mind. Once again I also have my beautiful family to thank for so many wonderful ideas. At times they give me suggestions for photo then we all work together to bring our ideas into life though acting them out. I also like to watch people around me such as sitting all alone on the beach with my feet in the cold sand and just watching whats going on around this brings on many ideas for my photos. Which deviants inspire you the most?
My dearest friend long lost sister ooopy-doopy She speaks though her paintings she always amazes me with her talent. At times Ill take a photo and she will get a deep feeling from it so she will bring it to life on canvas. I have the pleasure of seeing ooopy-doopy work on my walls every day Im very lucky! Dear Chill man Who-Is-Chill and Miss DalaiHarma there gallery are so full of vivid colours and creativeness it makes me hypo And Mr Archan that man just knows how to create with out thinking it looks like is comes so natural to him!
What advice could you give to budding photographers? Be yourself and run wild with your imagination the sky is the limit! Have you always been a photographer?
I got into photography around the age of 18 but got more fully involved in 2006 and have never looked back since. Are there any places in the world you would like to photograph? OMG YES . I want to go to Namibia the Dead Vlei yes for all that know me im crazy stupid about dead trees! So Mr Blingg makes me so damn jealous How do you think photographers who submit to dA should prevent their works being ripped?
Thats the annoying part about submitting your work any place on the internet not just dA. Its sad to say but now days its just one of those things that you grow to expect and yes it gives many of us the shits to no end I would suggest adding a little signature to your image but not to big and chunky so then I wont take the beauty away from your art and keep your image to around 650wide or if you like to display your work in larger size go with the dA watermark. *I would also like to add a big thank you to the lovely Miss Sarah for asking me to take part in this interview it was nice to take part and share a little about myself Amazing works of tracieteephotography Please go and view her gallery, you will be amazed!
