DIGIFOTO Pro ambassador – Leon Wodtke
My name is Léon Wodtke, I’m 25 years old and I’m from the Netherlands. I recently quit my job as a military man, to follow my biggest passion: photography. As an ambassador for Digifoto Pro, a well known photography publication magazine and platform for all enthusiastic photographers from the Benelux, I believe that photography is my language; it’s my way of expressing and developing myself. Just like an actual photograph.
What makes a great adventure & sports image for me?
It’s the “wow” factor that does it for me. It has to be a photograph that tells a story. It has to be an image that could be on a billboard, one that makes you stop to take a look at it because you’re intrigued by it.
Tips & tricks
When I think about adventure and sports, I think about extreme angles and high intensity. Maybe you could try to play with wide angle lenses, to get that photo where it’s like you’re standing in the middle of the event. When you do use a wide angle lens, you could stand close to your subject to create a 3D effect. That would be awesome!
Dare to break the edges and forget the rules!
