How did you know you wanted to be an author? I was born in 1957 on the paradise island of Bonaire. All my life, I have been playing guitar, and sometimes writing songs. Thirty years ago, I bought a second-hand cheap single-lens reflex camera and I started to practice photography. However, I did not have great results photographing with a flashgun and portrait photography. I started to study the exposure of the camera and the flashgun. Making good photos not only depends on a good camera, but the exposure is as important. I spent all my time trying out something different and with good results. I wrote this book to share this knowledge and to help every photographer achieve a better result in short time.
What is your advice for aspiring authors? Writing this Photography book was very difficult, because it is something that has never been sees before. Sometimes, I create new ideas for portrait photography with homemade equipment and I need to try it to see the results. To study the camera the sharpness of an object depends on the distance between the camera and the object. Sometime it takes three weeks to write one page. If you have any new ideas, write it down to make a good story great.
Do you have any writing rituals or practices? When I am playing the blues on my guitar, it always gives me focus. That is why every time when I am writing I play the blues in the background. Every time I taking a break, I drink a glass of red wine and think what is going to happen next.
What message to you want readers to remember? I want them to remember A Manual on Exposure in photography will have every reader feeling confident and qualified to capture incredible scenes their own surroundings in no time.
Ceriel van Arneman not only instructs readers on camera features and use but also on the homemade accessories that will elevate an amateur shot to a breathtaking, successful photograph anyone would be proud to hang on their wall.
