2. Did you go to school to study photography?

Jev: I studied photography mostly with trial and error. There are times when you make that shot and you think I’m the photo-god. But when you look at it 2 weeks later, it’s like, man did I make this thing?

There is no school that can teach you the way of a true photographer, you have to own a certain amount of feel, and lots of patience.

3. How long have you been a photographer?

Jev: I think it has to be about 7 – 8 years by now. All of that time I’ve mostly photographed landscapes. Almost for a year now, I’m shooting cars and interiors.

4. Do You remember Your first photography? Could You describe it?

5. What or who got you started in photography?

Jev: Photography is a very interesting and challanging business. It’s not only knowing your gear, but it also evolves a lot of people skills. I just love being one, but sometimes, I hate being one too. Combination of both.

6. How would you describe your style of photographing?

Jev: I try to beat myself every single time and compare my work with High end professionals only. My work is never good enough for me. There are maybe 2% of all images I make, which I really like.

There is really no style, just the way I handle my clients and their cars, houses etc.

Plymouth GTX- Harisanker.S (High Res)-2

2. Did you go to school to study photography?

Harisanker.S : No. I fell in love with this art form while doing my degree on information technology ( back in my collage days) couple of my friends were doing degree there on Visual communications and I helped them to assist a short film… and that was my first introduction to the camera. They taught me how to use it in general and show me some basics tricks. It was a slow poison (in a good way). I continues learning the craft, attending workshops across the states.

3. How long have you been a photographer?

Harisanker.S : Its been 3 yeas now and I’m looking back to the old days..I still don’t believe that I became a photographer finally.

4. Do You remember Your first photography? Could You describe it?

Harisanker.S : Like everyone,I started photography and used my friends, family and relatives as my main subjects, then I finally got my first camera.. the base level 1100d and the entry level prime lens 50mm 1.8. I always wanted to take some portraits in the rain, so with the help of my cousin brother a.k.a rain maker (basically he does it with spray bottle but he was really kind of pro at it). I shoot my lil sister as my main subject and took as many shoots as i can in golden hour till I got that one money shot. For me – that’s my very first “shoot” and it always have a special place in my heart.

5. What or who got you started in photography?

Harisanker.S : After finishing my degree, my mind and soul keep fueling the urge to become a photographer, although I didn’t own my own camera,thanks to best friend Dinosh,who gave his sony Alpha 100 camera for me to learn the basics and how to take proper exposures. During these periods i met Dinosh’s friend Arun.m.nair who has a very particular way of showcasing and compositing images and he helped me out to see the bigger picture,the way we stage elements and do post processing to amplify it without over killing the overall ambience. He is the reason for what i become today.

6. How would you describe your style of photographing?

Harisanker.S : In the beginning I heavily relied on depth, because of my 1.8 50mm,later in my years I came to know about the true art of composing image and bring the mood by controlling light and colours around us. Golden hours and nights time shoots are my favourites.

Interview Oldtimers

OLDTIMERS MAGAZINE ASKS: Harry Knaack, who’s fan of Volvo!

After one month we come back with our serie called Oldtimers Magazine Asks. Today we’re talking with Harry Knaack, who’s a real fan of classic Volvo!

B36gr

Oldtimers Magazine: Firstly tell us, who is Harry Knaack?

Harry Knaack: I am a 44 years old man, born and grown up in Lower-Saxony, West-Germany. Now I’m living in the former East-Germany, because the love and the job. I’m an employee in the justice-system. Hobbies are photographing, traveling, biking and my “Volvo-Cheese-Moose” :), called “Maya the bee” by my woman, who is not interested in classic-cars.

OM: What was the first car that You ever drove?

HK: My first car was an Opel Kadett C City from 1977. I owned this car from 1990 to 1994.

WP_20160715_006 WP_20160715_007

OM: When did You start Your adventure with classic cars? What cars did You have in Your collection?

HK: The Volvo 66 is my only classic car. For business and longer rides I have a modern Mitsubishi.

WP_20160617_003

OM: What is special about driving an old car to You?

HK: Deliberate slowness in hectic times, waiver of comfort and fascination in a simple but genius technology.

OM: What is Your car-dream?

HK: Borgward Isabella Coupé from 1960.

FB_IMG_1469225057127

OM: Why some kind of fashion for old cars – is becoming more popular now?

HK: I can only tell my own experiences. The 1970th years are the time of my childhood. It was a hopefull, colored and a little bit strange time. And I like ABBA. 😀

FB_IMG_1467409039416

FB_IMG_1459068773502

OM: Why Volvo? What’s special with this car? (In Your opinion)

HK: The most interesting thing of this car is the Variomatic – transmission. Riding without shifting and shifting-breaks is full of fun and fascination. Although the car has only 45 hp, you can win some little traffic-light races. And the car is backwards fast as forward. Then: My Volvo has a Swedish mother, a Dutch Grandma (DAF), an Italian father (Designed by Giovanni Michelotti) and a French heart (Renault-engine). So it has a fantastic European dimension.

The Volvo is cheap like a Trabant today, but it is much more rare in my region. And finally the large Volvos were in former East-German-times representative and very expensive cars for Presidents and Ministers. The most people in the East never saw such a little, friendly and funny Volvo.
