Luna 9 - Private Photography
Luna 9 is a lifestyle photographer who absolutely loves her job and everything that comes with it. Luna has been with BTS and Team Novism for 2 years and appreciates the people she meets, the places she goes, the hours she keeps, the ambience she gets to experience each and everytime she snaps a picture, and the spontaneity in every shoot.
She appreciates the raw reality of everyday life, the fleeting beauty of those inbetween moments, and does her very best to take every picture with that in mind. Luna wants her viewers to relate to her photographs through recognition of and familiarity with the situations, the emotions, and the energy so much that they wonder if they are looking at a picture of someone they know.
The Advantages - Interview excerpt with Luna 9
"Interest in photography has exploded over the last 10 years, largely thanks to the developments in digital photography and graphic and web design. Cameras and computers have become inexpensive and more powerful, software more sophistocated and printers can now print photos that are as good (if not better) than anything produced in a chemical darkroom. Now, once youâ€™ve acquired a digital setup, the economic restrictions of film and development costs have been removed and the cost of photography is virtually nil.
Along with these developments in photography has been the parallel development of the Web. Ten years ago websites were largely clumsy, HTML driven constructions. Today, contemporary photographers have powerful tools such as Flash, WordPress and DreamWeaver with which to develop their websites. Photographers and graphic designers can also sell their work through companies such as PhotoShelter or ImageKind, and through photo libraries such as Alamy and iStockPhoto, opening up new revenue streams. The world has evolved to the advantage of the photographer and graphic designer."
