file_506346.jpgEach month the Renderosity community votes on the Renderosity Artist Of The Month [AOM] ... August's AOM is Juliette.Gribnau!
We congratulate Juliette for an outstanding collection of works in the Photography Gallery!

Tell us a bit about yourself. Who is 'Juliette.Gribnau' ?

I am a dutch lady; 66 years of age, mother of 2 daughters, and a great lover of art, photography and nature. I've been a Renderosity member since 2004, and started out on the fractal and Terragen galleries, but since I got my first camera (Olympus e-410) I've been dedicated to photography.

How long have you been doing photography?

I got my first camera in 2008 and started immediately with it.





Do you have any formal art education?

My education is difficult to explain in english,  but I am an educated and trained social worker (specialised for children and young adults).

What equipment is in your toolset?

My most used camera since May of this year is the Olympus OM-D-eM5; and the most used lenses are the 70x300mm; the 12x50mm and the 9x18mm. Because I shoot all my photos sitting in a scootmobile (I can walk no more than about 50 meters), I do not use a tripod or monopod.


Early Morning Mood


What do you enjoy most about photography?

Nature, nature and nature (flowers, bugs, critters, birds).


The Simple(?) Beauty of Grass-1


You are also an incredible Fractal Artist as well. Do you still dabble in Fractal art?

I sure do... mostly in winter; let's say : all the days that I can't go out with my camera. I still enjoy fractalling, and it's because of fractals that I discovered photography. The similarity between fractals (based on nature) and photography is fascinating (see, for example, how a fern-leaf is built... all basics of fractal art can be found in it).

What Fractal programs have you used, and which is a favorite?

My favorite (and the one I started with) still is : xenodream, but I also use UltraFractal-5 and Mandelbulb 3D.


The Last of the Butterflies


What do you think your best piece of work is and why?

In fractal art, It still is "The Last of the Butterflies"... because it is a wonderful shape, but also because it tells all about what I feel about the world and environment issues.

Do you have any tips you would be willing to share on photography, or Fractal art?

I have only a couple tips, but they are very common: 1) keep your eyes and heart open; 2) practice, practice, and practice.


Zuurbes (Berberis vulgaris)


Has this online community (Renderosity) enhanced your work, relationships, and learning?

It sure has... I am 10 years a member now, and I sure will stay as long as possible; I found friendships and a lot of knowledge... allthough I would love to see perhaps less compliments and more positive critiques (sometimes I don't dare to give a critique, because all other compliments on a certain upload are oh's and ah's and wows).




We invite you to have a further look at Juliette.Gribnau's Renderosity Gallery!
