Meet Jana Rindler

Hi! My name is Jana Rindler and I recently got married! My wonderful husband and two crazy dogs are my life. I love Jesus, reading books, the weather and smell of Fall, and macaroons are my weakness.

Editéur Plus had an opportunity to feature Jana Rindler. Here is what we asked.

  1. Where is home?

I live in Cincinnati, Ohio in the United States!

  1. What sort of work do you specialise in?

My work is a wide variety, but I would be portraiture and weddings occasionally. I love photographing someone and catch the beauty in their eye and what makes them unique. We were all created uniquely and so beautiful and different. I love capturing someone's passion in something they love doing. I have done simple portraits such as senior portraits, but I love doing bridal portraits or someone dancing or singing. I love the rawness and real of someone smiling, singing or dancing or the joy of the bride on her wedding day and the authenticity. I love exploring abandon buildings as well as occasionally doing some still life.

  1. Did you go to school to study photography?

Yes! Currently, I am in school at the Art Institute of Cincinnati Ohio and I will be finished at the end of this September!

  1. How long have you been a photographer?

Hmmm...I have been a photographer for about 4 years. I am also teaching myself videography right now!

  1. What or who got you started in photography?

I would have to say, my family. I got my first DSLR as a gift and if you asked my parents I would always be taking pictures and have a camera or something with me. I have boxes full of photographs! They have always pushed me and believed in me. I never know what I wanted to do but when my parents were attending a wedding I was photographing, my dad said to me afterwards "I have never seen you glow so much."

  1. How would you describe your style?

My style...is romantic and whimsical. I am not a huge fan of Photoshop. I will use it a little bit, however, I am not a fan of making people look fake or not their natural selves. When it comes to my photographs that I have done with dancers with powder, I do my best to make sure not to use Photoshop with those, even if it means taking over 1,000 photos that day.

  1. What type of cameras do you shoot with?

I shoot with a Canon 7D and occasionally a 5D Mark 3.

  1. What is your favourite photography accessory, other than your camera?

Does natural light count? :D

  1. If you had to choose one lens which one would it be and why?

My 50mm! I am so in LOVE with this lens. It is my perfect go-to lens. It is absolutely beautiful for my portraits. It is so light on my camera. It helps me carry my camera around a lot more.

  1. What is your favourite computer/editing accessory, other than your computer?

Lightroom! I love Lightroom. As I said above I am not into making people look fake. With Lightroom I can make a few touches here and there and then if there is anything major I will use Photoshop.

  1. What gives you ideas and inspires you to create such amazing imagery?

Worship music. I have a heart for Jesus and when I listen to worship music, an image can pop into my head of an idea for my next session. Whenever I do sessions, I make sure I speak to my clients to figure out what they are wanting so I can do the best I can to create the images they want. Driving around as well. Thankfully I have friends who are up to being my models when I need them. For example, I found a sunflower field and I was overly excited, text my friend and she was at my house in the next hour ready for a photoshoot with me! She's a trooper.

  1. A photographer who inspires you?

One of my favourite photographers is Sue Bryce. Her style is stunning and her portraits are GORGEOUS! If I could meet her one day and learn from her, whew, that would be awesome!

  1. One way you market your photography?

I would have to Instagram and Facebook. I am still working my brand and honestly what I want to do exactly when I get out of school. Who knows where God is going to take me.
