I love the look of polaroids and now it is so expensive to buy the film I have opted to use other means to achieve the look of a polaroid. I have blogged about the program and the actions and now I have been playing with the textures.

One of the many reasons I love Alaska is the wild daisies that grow everywhere in the summer.

1. What do you shoot with? (camera and lens…choose one of each)

Nikon D70, Nikkor 18-200mm F3.5 – 5.6 VR.

2. What is your favorite photo on flickr?
(one of yours and one other photographer)

This macro photograph of a poppy seedhead is my favourite. I love the colours and the fact that it was so tiny!

I have new favourites all the time, usually it’s something where I think “damn, wish I’d taken that”, this one by Bristol photographer Paul Green being a case in point.

3. What would be one tip for someone new to photography?

Shoot lots and join Flickr for inspiration. Have fun with it, you’ll suddenly realize you look at the world in a different way when you have a camera attached to your face, you see more. Don’t be overwhelmed by the work of others and do remember that most photographers to varying degrees do some sort of post processing in Photoshop. Their photographs didn’t necessarily come off the camera looking like that!

4. If you had to choose between stills, macro, portrait, landscape, what would you choose?

I would love to be a good portrait photographer, but I’m not, I seem to have much better results shooting macro, and I love the detail.

5. Who’s photography influenced you the most in the beginning stages of your own photography?

Ambient Light and Brett Walker were two favourites when I joined Flickr, not that I could ever begin to take photographs like theirs, I just found them very inspirational. My brother Alpinaboy gave me his Nikon D70 and my boyfriend *Firefox showed me, and continues to have to show me, how to use it. I love going out taking photographs with both of them, so they were and still are a big influence.

6. Where do you get your greatest inspiration now?

Other photographers on Flickr are my inspiration, I’m continually trying to emulate and learn from them. New places are an inspiration, who couldn’t be bowled over by Venice?

7. Who are your top five favorite photographers on flickr right now?

Tough choice, but here are just a few who really stand out.

lomokev (in particular his “Splashing About” set)
Jordi Gual

But then there’s Ray, Richard, Shawna, Stephen, Lyn, Jo and Jeff who are my best Flickr friends and favourite photographers too. Told you it was a tough choice.
