Five & Five

Five Questions and Five Photographs from Featured Photographers of April's Misfits With Cameras Photography Exhibit~

Today I had the pleasure of bugging interviewing Mandy Tudor, one of my favorite local photographers and one of my favorite people. She is co-owner of Justes & Tudor Photography and manages Ritz Camera at Rookwood Commons.

1. Let's begin with the tech stuff. List your gear: 

Nikon D700, Nikon D300, Nikon SB-600, Nikon lenses - 24mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2, 35-70mm f/2.8, 70-300 f/4-5.6, 18-35mm f/3.5-5.6, 180mm f/2.8

2.  When did you get started in Photography? 

I don't remember not having a camera.

3. Describe your style of photography, including photographers that inspire you. 

My biggest inspiration is Joel-Peter Witkin.  He is my Jesus.  I have a pretty diverse style, but negative space is a running theme in most of my personal favorites. 

4. Tell us about your greatest achievement as a photographer and your worst nightmare as a photographer. 

My greatest achievement as a photographer so far was when I was taking my second photo class in college, and got accepted into the Cream of the Crop art show at the Southern Ohio Art Museum. My worst nightmare as a photographer is going blind.

5. List 5 people, places or things on your Photography Bucket List:

I have to make a bucket list, too? WTF?! 

I want a Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VR or VRII more than any other lens at the moment. That will probably change tomorrow.  

I need an army of SB-910s and SB-700s.  

I would take a D4 I suppose. (Also, I find it amusing that D$ happens if you forget to let go of shift.) 

I want to travel anywhere and take photos, but I always want to be able to order a cheese pizza while I am there.  

Number 5 is a secret.

Mandy Tudor will be showing her work at Arnold's Bar & Grill on Saturday, April 14th from 
6 - 9 pm on the second floor.
