While the photoboxers are finishing up their photos, let’s get to know Riana from Rudified!
Any hint as to what your photos will be?
You’ll just have to find out ;)
Who inspires/influences you when making art?
I find a lot of my inspiration from surroundings, music, or the subject/person of the photo. I am consistently inspired by local photographers here in Hawaii. It’s funny because my competition is actually some of the greatest work I’ve seen (don’t be modest Tina!) Some of my other favorites are Marina Miller of Red Heart Photo, Aaron Yoshino of Honozooloo, and John Hook.
What was your favorite photo to shoot so far?
I took this photo at the Dead Prez show at Nextdoor and when I saw it on my camera after I took it, I was excited because I knew I had a winnahs shot haha.
How do you feel about challenging your friend Tina Jo?
Scared and excited at the same time. We were seriously just talking about working together a couple of days before we got chosen to duel. We both come from different styles so I’m excited to see what we come up with.
What do you think Tina Jo will do for her photo?
I’m sure it’s going to be fucking amazing.
Thanks for the mini interview, Riana!
Don’t forget to come back on Monday morning to view their final entries and vote for your favorite!
