Portfolio Reviews: interview with.. Caroline Lytskjold

Caroline Lytskjold

Caroline was born in the world’s rainiest city in 1989. She’s currently studying art and photography in Oslo, Norway. Carrying her point-and-shoot camera in her bag, she tries to capture delicate moments, colors, lights and patterns.

When did you start to think about photography?
I’ve loved taking pictures for as long as I can remember, but I probably started thinking more about it when I started a fashion blog in circa 2005. Later on I got a photographer boyfriend who gave me a Canon AE-1, and at once I started loving the analog feel.

What does photography mean to you? and which kind of photography do you like more?
Personally I use photography as a sort of a diary. I’m so afraid I’ll wake up one day realizing my youth went by and I didn’t notice. So I try capturing bits of it. At school I also get to try staged photography and portaits. I love it all.

When you take a portrait, what is important for you?
Keeping it real, natural, feminine, comfortable.

Do you think it’s important to follow a school to learn how to shoot?
I myself have gotten a whole lot out of studying photography for a year, and I’m planning on doing it for a couple of more years. I think it’s important to know the technics and to study art history for references. Other than that, having it in you is the most important part. And to constantly photograph.

What’s the photo you want to take and you never did?
I see several every day!

What’s your photo-mission?
Both capturing and creating those interesting and hopefully beautiful moments.
