I’m Carla, a travel and music photographer. Although, I grew up in the suburbs but I’ve always been a bit of a city girl. Born in Washington, DC and educated in New York City, I crave concrete more than grass.
Every city has it’s unique identity. Many people see the city as a barrage of stimuli. Everything seems to be moving so fast, you can hardly keep up. Looking through my camera, everything slows down. I can see and capture the mystique of the urban environment. Whether I’m stalking a city alone, with someone or dragging my dog along, I always feel inspired.
Our Instagram feed is a collection of photos taken with my cameraphone. I’ve grown to love the original concept of Instagram. For me, this is a different experience with photography. I’ve tried apps that make my phone more like a “real” camera. I’ve thought of buying lens to fit my phone. In the end, I’ve excepted the limitations of the device. I love the challenge of shooting with only an iPhone and capturing the world square. No lens to change. No concern about aperture and shutter speed. Just point and shoot. It reminds me of the days before Photoshop. The best photography advice was “get it right in camera”.
