Over the last two years, I had the privilege of interacting with many talented photographers from around the world discussing their work, vision and style of photography.
My first ‘victim’ was Jyothy Karat – a photo documenter. I wanted a set of compelling and illuminating questions that could help a newbie start. But I had no clue as to what I should be asking. No amount of googling did help either.
But little did I realize at that time that I had the opportune blessing of being both ignorant and curious about photography. I sat down thinking about the questions that I wanted to be answered and clarified. After an hour or so, I did come up with some interesting questions.
Given below are a handful of questions that I use as a starter on every photographer that I interview.
Q. What kind of gear do you use?
a. Camera body –
b. Lens –
c. Tripod –
d. Filters –
e. Flash –
f. Camera bag –
g. Mention others, if any.
