Few words of Introduction about David?
My name’s David Uzochukwu, I’m fifteen years old and currently living in Luxembourg. I’m in love with storytelling photography.
Your Pictures are so genial in every aspect of art. How long you have been Photographing and how did you start this?
Thank you! I’ve been taking pictures for three years now. I started with my mother’s point-and-shoot, and everything developed from there.
Could you describe your style of Photography?
I like to describe it as emotive, dark, yet colorful. My favorite thing to do is telling somber stories with bright colors.
Just being curious, how do you create such incredible ideas behind every photograph. What makes you to drive those significant ideas?
Most of my ideas include either wonder or tragedy. I’m very inspired by those themes, because there are just so many different aspects to them, and I explore that in my photography.
I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II and a 50mm 1.4. All of my post-processing is done in Photoshop CS6.
I’m inspired by everything around me. Dreams, experiences, movies, books, people. It all just comes together in my work, and forms worlds that I’d like to live in.
What should a portrait represent or convey according to you?
For me, a good portrait tells a story. That’s the most important thing, and how that is achieved doesn’t matter.
Any final words of advice for aspirants in this field?
Never give up, and stay true to yourself. Just keep doing what you love, and don’t let anyone tell you to do something else.
