Five at Five – Sandy of The Sandy Chronicles

This week’s Five at Five Intro features Photographer Sandy of The Sandy Chronicles. Sandy’s About Page says:

Welcome to Sandy’s blog. It has a little bit of everything. Photos from Asia, China, Canada and US. Travel bits on people and places there. Food, recipes and oddities. It’s primarily to capture stuff I am sure to forget.

Five at Five Questions

  •  When and how did you start on your photographic journey? 

My interest started seven years ago when I visited Cambodia and signed up for photo tour of Angkor Wat with Nathan Horton.  Nathan is a professional photographer living in Cambodia and he created an itinerary optimized for location, subject matter and light. Nathan introduced me to street photography and the magic of capturing people in their natural element. I’ve been hooked ever since.

  • What subject do you like photographing the most? 

I enjoy street photography, particularly pictures that feature people.  

  • Have you been influenced by other photographers, if so by whom and why? If not, who is your favourite photographer? 

Photographers whose body of work I admire include Steve McCurry, Elliot Erwitt, Herbert List and Fan Ho.   McCurry because of his drama, Erwitt because of his comedic eye, List for his sensuality and Fan Ho because of his sense of place.

  • What is the go-to camera equipment that you use regularly and what software do you use to process your images? 

I have an Olympus OM-D which I’ll use on photo-walks but really, my favorite camera is the one on hand which is usually my phone. For post-processing I use Lightroom.  Lately, I’ve also been transforming images into different forms – into graphics (Netmuse, Canva), into videos (Movavi) and animation (StopMotion Studio).  

  • What is your favourite method of processing an image? (i.e., colour, monochrome, saturated, dreamy look etc) 

Color or monochrome depends on the style or mood of the image. When I do color, I generally like bright saturated images. For monochrome, I tend towards high contrast pictures.




Thank you, Sandy, for participating in the Five at Five Introduction Series.

Next Week’s Intro is Ann-Christine of Leya – To See a World in a Grain of Sand
