We met in food photo critique group and keep in touch until today. Love Laya for who she is honesty speaks through her images there is no bullshit)) So I asked her few questions enjoy.
1) What is your secret to authentic image?
The secret is authentic emotions, I see the souls, I try to hear inner voices. Photography for me is emotions, I can translate any emotion into photography, i’s a liberating act .
2) Why did you pick this particular red image. Tell us story behind it.
This image was in my fav outfit at that time, I was at a party in my french school, with now a life time friends, at the same time was in a time when all doors were closed and my soul was hurt and crushed, everytime i see it i remember how i become the person I am now, strong and proud .
3) What do you get out of photography. How did it start for you?
Actually it started with food, I was just moved to a new country and was missing my mom’s food, so I started experiencing my mom's recipes and post them on facebook, everybody loved them but I did not, the food on my table was looking much better than the food in the image I post, so I got into food photography .
4) What is your recipe for good life?
I truly belive that what is meant for you, will reach you, even if its beneath two mountains. And what is not meant for you will not reach you, even if its beneath your two lips, so i work hard, if I don’t get what i worked for iI still be proud .
5) What are your favourite subjects to photograph? Any advise to people who want to get into photography?
My favourite is portrait, specialy if its spontanious and not planned, it shows real emotions, and you can see the soul through the eyes, magical.
And for anybody who wants to get into photography, I tell them, it’s not the camera, it’s the eye and soul, photograph what you love, and clean your soul because it will show in your images .
