One person has been rocking our socks off in the past weeks in our groups ! Ronny Garcia never failed to amaze us with all of his stunning images. Let’s get to know him some more .
Where do you live and how is your life at the moment?
I live in Santiago (Chile). About my life i can say i’m living one the most beautiful moment in my life, i found a person who l love and makes me so happy, i just finish the university and in the last 2 years i started in photography who is one of my biggest love.
I always say to myself that the life is like a roulette no matter what you do is always full ofups and downs, so you just really have to enjoy every single moment and try to be happy.
How did you got into photography?
Well the photography came into my life in a moment i wasn’t expecting.
In late 2013 i found some image on internet that really grabbed my attention (i always have been connected with art in general, i’ve been drawing since i was 14 or so), i started to search more and more about this kind of image (all them were conceptual photography), so i decided i wanted to buy a camera and try this.
Believe me from the moment i took the camera in my hands i knew this is what i wanted to do, i just can’t explain the connection i felt and how this filled my heart, my brain, my soul in such an incredible way.
Have passed 2 years and half since that moment, and i just can’t imagine my life without photography
What gear are you using?
- Canon 6D
- Canon 50mm f/1,4
- Canon 100mm f/2
- Tamron 24-70mm 2.8 VC
- Sigma Art 35mm 1.4
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Well this is such difficult question, butthe only thing i hope is to have the same passion and love i’m feeling for photography now, because the future can come in so many ways that we never know.
How would you describe your way of taking pictures?
Most of my ideas are made first on papers, i try to plan as many things as is possible on my pictures, from the clothes until the poses, thinking also in the atmosphere that the picture should have. After i complete all those stuff come the post processing, here i decided which color would be the best for the picture ( ihave an obsession with colors, so i’m always unsatisfied with them lol), also fix all the details to make the image the most similar ofwhat i have in mind.
Where do you take your inspiration from ?
Well i think for me a lot of my inspiration come from internet, i pass a lot of hours in front of my computer because of my work so i see a lot of things like illustrations, paintings, photographs so i think this is one the things that most influence my work. Also i can mention some photographers that have been a great inspiration for me in the last time:
Alessio Albi, Laura Zalenga, David Uzochukwu, Dmitry Rogozhkin
How are you influenced by the area where you live ?
i live in a area that is full of building, cars, and a lot of people, things that really can be so stressful, all those things forced me to try to scape in a way from that, so i think that’s the reason why most of my pictures are taking outside with nature.
