Featured Photographer – Wenche Jostad


1. Tell us a bit about this image?

The image means a lot to me. I wanted to keep it simple, telling a story of emotions that only an image can do. The locations is Bangkok.


2. What inspired you to take the shot?

The models sensual and femenine posture that reflected her emotion and made me empathise with her. I could feel her emotions. The “golden” light brought me feelings of hope and love and positivity.


3. What gear did you use for the shot including lighting?

Canon 5D, Mark III. The shot is done outside and I’m using natural light and a reflector.


4. Tell us about the editing process?

I love editing but this time I wanted to keep the image as natural as possible. I use Photoshop. I made the texture of the gold paint stronger and the background darker. I also removed some redness on her back.


5. How does the piece reflect you as an artist?

As an artist, I want to describe a feeling without words and this is what I’m aiming for in all of my images. It’s important for me to capture a unique moment in time. I love the power of photography.
