Elly-Mae Farkas

Photographer: Elly-Mae Farkas

Shooting subjects: Portraiture, Landscape, Fashion, Bands/Live events

Equipment: Canon Digital 350D, Canon EOS 300, Canon Speedlite 430EX flash with diffuser, Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens, Canon EF 28-90mm f4-5.6 III lens, Tripod, HP Photosmart Pro B9180 printer.

Elly-Mae's interest in photography began three years ago at the early age of 14, when she started experimenting with any subject willing to be captured. She then expanded into portraiture; first taking self-portraits while she still felt her skills were inadequate to show the rest of the world.

Elly would like to further her skills in photography, as her current skills have developed simply by pressing buttons and hoping the results turns out well! Most of her images are black and white, although she also adores shooting in colour.

Photography has recently taken a larger role in Elly's life. For the past few months, she has been running her own photography business, concentrating on children, fashion, portraiture, conceptual imagery, weddings and live music events.

One day Elly hopes that her photography will allow her to travel the world shooting famous models for well known fashion magazines. Until then, she is having too much fun taking photos of everyday people and printing them with her new HP Photosmart Pro B9180 printer.
