ePHOTOzine Interview With Microstock Photographer Kasper Nymann - We chat to Kasper Nymann to find out more about his work and his passion for photography.
Tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into photography.
My name is Kasper Nymann and I am a microstock photographer from Denmark. I have a graphic design degree and have been working within the design industry for the last 10 years.
Photography has always been an interest of mine and in 2010, I decided to start working as a part-time microstock photographer. I have had some photography lessons through my graphic designer education, but I consider myself as a self-taught photographer which I also think gives me my own style.
What kit do you use and why do you like it?
When I started as a photographer, I bought the Sony A900 camera, which was Sony's flagship model at that time. I made sure to have lenses that would cover a variety of many different situations, including zooms, macro lenses, wide-angle lenses and portrait lenses.
I had been shooting pictures with the Sony A900 for some years and always thought my pictures looked a little smudged and not that sharp. A couple of months ago, I decided to buy the Sony A7r that has left out the optical low-pass filter to make pictures much sharper. The A7r is a mirrorless system camera that reminds me a bit of the Sony NEX collection, just much more high-end.
The A7r is definitely the sharpest camera I have used and it's excellent for landscape photography. The camera is pretty slow, so I always use a monopod when shooting and if I have to shoot some moving objects or use zoom, I tend to go back to use my old A900.
