Our “Inspiration Feeder” presents to you short interviews with interesting visual artists from around the globe. Today in focus: Diane Pacchiottino.
How old are you?
I’m 23 and I’m still student right now, graduating my last design studies’ year.
Where do you come from?
I’m from Paris, France.
How long have you been doing photography?
I started photography in high school as a hobby (with mobile phones), and I bought a reel camera with my first pay check, four years ago. (It’s not a wonderful camera, it’s an old Canon 1100D). Since then, I bring it with me every time I can.
How would you define your style?
As I began to shoot not so long ago, I’m not sure I have reached the style I want. I just shoot when it’s possible, and I try to shape my eye into photography and the life’s cinematographic aspect. But if I had to define my own style, I’ll say that I try to model the light of the scenes to highlight my subjects, and that post-production is a major stage of my work. During my post-prod process, I add a lot of contrast to my photos and I saturate the colors a little to get captivate renderings…but in reality, I adapt a lot to the shootings.
How long do you think it took you to find your personal style of shooting?
I don’t think I already have a precised personal style, but I tend to and I’ll work for it.
What would you say is the thing that most inspires you? / What is your main source of inspiration?
Finally, I think that the main source that inspires me is cinema ! I have watched a lot of movies and I love to analyse those aesthetics and graphics images. I follow also a lot of photographers and artists on bechance and instagram, to get daily inspired.
