Dina Litovsky interview with A Photo Editor

Class of 2010 alumni Dina Litovsky was recently featured in an interview with Heidi Volpe at A Photo Editor discussing her work and how she approaches travel based editorial work.

When Heidi Volpe asks how she approaches travel stories, Dina responds:

"I always like to do a fair amount of research beforehand. That involves reading up about its culture, people and landmarks. A useful place to start is past travel articles, which are also great for initial photo research. Looking at previous images of a city both gives me an idea of what to expect as well as what to avoid. It’s fun to be seduced by certain things when at a new location – everything seems exciting – but then it’s very easy to unwittingly repeat existing images of an over-photographed place/landmark."

"Once on location, I like to have a first day where I walk around the city only with an iPhone, getting a feel for the city and making quick images of locations where I’d like to come back to."
