PAS: What sort of equipment and software do you use?
Keith Selle: For my lights, I used all Alien Bees. For my camera and lens, it’s Fuji FinePix S5 Pro with Nikon lens. For computer, I use Apple MacBook Pro 15” 2.4GHz with 4GIG RAM. I’m always up to date with the latest software. My workflow in post-production starts with Adobe Lightroom 2.6 then finished it off with Adobe Photoshop CS4. I use these things because it works for me and I’m happy with the end results.

PAS: Where is your favorite location to shoot pictures?
Keith Selle: I enjoy shooting in the studio, on locations or in the great outdoors. You are restricted to space when you shoot in the studio. I can get very creative with lighting whenever I shoot on locations.

PAS: Are you a MAC or PC user?
Keith Selle: I’m all about Mac baby!

PAS: What would you say to other enthusiast photographers out there who aspire to become a great photographer?
Keith Selle: Learn the basics in photography because all those numbers on your lens and camera mean something. Once you understand basic photography and lighting then photography is so much fun. Also try to develop a good workflow for yourself to make life easier when you have to deal with thousands and thousands of files on a weekly basis. Your workflow in post-production is very crucial as a photographer.
