Can you tell the readers a little bit about yourself, name, what

Hello! My name is Eva, EvitaWeed for my friends.
I was born in Jaén in 1986 , a province of Andalucia in Spain, and currently reside in Granada,
Since childhood I am interested in photography. I've always been attracted much attention cameras and old photos were in my house: the polaroids, the albums of my childhood ... I loved seeing fografias slides, but it was something that happened a mere hobby, until I moved to Granada about 2007. It was at this time when I started taking courses and really learn all that encompasses the art and the use of light, both of which were unknown to me. today, Im studying because I still believe you never stop learning in the world of photography. During these courses I did many jobs in clubs, photographing the world of the night, lots of concerts, sessions varied and gradually began to develop my own style, and hang my pictures on the web, on sites like Flickr or tumblr, where any amateur the picture can get your work recognized.
What inspired you to start being creative?
For me, the photography It’s my window on the world.
Everything around me is a huge asphalt wasteland that I’m trying to escape from… by preserving my innocence in a society that seems to be losing that quality.
A vision of my city, of this enormous, desolate asphalt wasteland, of the futile resistance against the loss of innocence …
There are thousands of moments in life, and some of them deserve to be captured …
feelings and images … and that’s all there is to it.
Is making art your fulltime job, and if not, what else do you do?
I work as I can, I do not mind that has nothing to do with photography, if I need money for something in particular I look for a job
Have you gone to art school, if yes where did you go and what did you study?
if, when I moved to Granada, I studied a course in artistic photography in art school in the city, where I learned studio lighting techniques, and many aspects of the history of photography never heard, and already finished.
Although I think you never stop learning about photography
Where do you find inspiration?
I´m inspired every day, by my life, my problems, my favorite places, my boyfriend…My work especially contains lots of self-portraits; I like going out to my favorite places with my tripod and taking photos of myself, either alone or with my partner, just to show that it’s possible to capture each and every moment and make it special.
There’s always a touch of melancholy in my pictures, because I love analogue cameras and with them I’ll always get a graininess that imbues every shot, as a product of the light. My pictures are also characterized by soft, subtle shades, small imperfections and an incredibly studied use of light. Natural light is the key theme of the collection.
My style is totally recognizable and distinctive. It’s so easy to let yourself be transported away and immersed in this imaginary world of sublime landscapes, dynamic skies, and sensations hidden away in the most remote corners imaginable.
Do you have a favorite artist and if so who and why?
The truth is that I am passionate about the big picture of the Magnum agency. At first as I had no Internet, emerging photographers did not know, but now I've started to find many very good galleries flickr and deviantart, and although not so famous have some excellent work (Korpak Helen, Sam or Lucy Desantis Camb) they are fantastic photographers and very inspirationals.
