1. How did you discover tumblr?
Ms. Tricia Gosingtian’s works at deviantart linked me to her tumblr blog. I’ve been a fan of her photography ever since I got interested on this craft. Also, I found out that there’s an iPhone app for Tumblr and thought that it would be easier to have an online diary.
2. What is your blogging style?
I’m not really aware of what style of blogging I have, I think it would fall on the random category. Hahaha! at the first place, I don’t really consider myself as a blogger. It just happened that I post photos and I find Tumblr easy to use.
3. Tell me something about yourself.
My tumblr URL tells my fullname and I’m 26. Shocks! what a shame revelation. I’m an Electronics Engineer by profession and a photographer by heart. :)
4. A lot of tumblristas admire you for the magic that you create with every photo manipulation you make. How do you do this, tell us something about this magnificent talent you have.
I am really thankful for every bit of appreciation my works are getting every time I post them. Those appreciations help a lot for me to be inspired and improve. Technically, I see this kind of installation art as a collage - a detailed collage. My working process includes:
1. Imagination - i think, all kinds of arts started with this. It may come from a dream, an emotion, or a certain event. Sometimes, I make a draft by sketching what final artwork I want to achieve.
2. Shooting - most piece I made include myself so I have to shoot instead of getting resources from the web. I use a tripod, Canon500d and 18-55mm lens.
3. Getting extra resources - currently, my own resources are not enough to make some scenes I want, so getting free stock images from the internet is really helpful. But if i’m going to pursue this kind of art, I’m planning to shoot photos for my own resources.
4. Editing - This is really where the magic happens. Need not to explain more. Hahaha! I use Adobe Photoshop. Also, listening to music helps to extract creative juices. I listen to instrumentals while working.
5. When did you discovered this talent you have?
It started with my 365 Project last year (A self-portrait project that I wasn’t able to finish). When I reached the 50% mark of the project, the winds of creativity blew me to this category. By that time, the last time I use other photoshop’s tools aside from brightness and contrast, was when I was in highschool doing my English Journal.
6. Of all your creation, which one is your favorite? and why?
I have some favorite photos of me. Though the order varies according to my current feelings.
This is one of them. A self-portrait I did a year ago. An interpretation of “No one is more responsible for ourselves but ourselves”. For some reasons, this photo reminds me that, more often than not, we have choices and the so-called second chance. I called this piece “Rebirth.”
7. Is inspiration important for you to create these images or you’re just there eager to make one every time you want?
Of course, inspiration is the driving force to create something art related. (Well, I think, there’s art in everything, so does inspiration). When I feel blank, or uninspired, I don’t shoot or if I do, there’s a big chance that I am going to delete what I have taken right away. I try to make every photo with a personal touch - something close to my heart.
8. 3 tumblristas you look up to and why.
a) Ms. Tricia Gosingtian is a huge inspiration to me. It’s a bit ironic that I idolize a lady fashion photographer, but I really find her works calming and something that breathes class. She’ll forever be my local photography hero.
b) Mr. Robbie Bautista is another big inspiration. Though he’s not really active on tumblr anymore, I am a frequent visitor of his personal and travel blog. The creative dork made me really palpitate the day he followed me. I really love his works!
c) Mr. Vin Quilop made my mind went blank for a number of times whenever I saw his new masterpieces. I lost my drawing/painting ability back then when I held a camera (not a fair trade! since drawing is my first love). I am really amazed by the talent of this guy. Because for me, when it comes to visual art, the traditional drawing and painting will still be on the highest place.
The list goes on and on. There are a lot of talented people in this microblogging community.
9. 5 things we don’t know about you.
a) I loved watching anime’s during college days. Cardcaptor Sakura was my #1 favorite. I even put a wing symbol on my signature as a tribute.
b) Speaking of tribute, I am fond of making tribute videos (photo slide shows) before. Visit my abandoned youtube channel (arielmagyawejr) if you want to see it.
c) I used to draw and bring a sketchpad with me during college days even if it was unrelated to my course. I am really inspired by Yesha (the Meteor Garden II character). I’m an F4 fan too. I bought 2 of Vic Zhou’s album.
d) I freak out on cockroaches. Who does not?!
e) I like the idea of having a cup of coffee while reading a book, but I don’t drink coffee and read books that much.
10. How does it feel to be featured here in tumblr magazine. You’re our 12th cover! :D
I feel so honored to be featured by tumblrmagph. Upon reading the previous issues, I knew that you already featured interesting and talented Pinoy Tumblristas. Really feels really great. Your invitation is like a bucketful of inspiration poured to me! Thank you!
