Romanian food (like any other cuisine) was influenced in its development by its neighbors and any country that had anything to do with it at any time. Turkish, Greek, Russian, Bulgarian, German and Hungarian cuisines helped Romanian cuisine grow a larger list of dishes. Several ingredients, spices and recipes were introduced during our long history and adapted to our culture and needs.However, I will not write about gastronomy history here because I am not that gifted. I will write about... continue reading

If I should make a count about Romanians' favorite ingredients or foods I would get to a very simple conclusion: meat (a lot of it, mostly pork), mamaliga (polenta), telemea (a Romanian cheese, a bit similar to feta, but better in taste - sorry Greeks, but it's true), tomatoes, fresh onion and garlic.You might think it's simple, but we, Romanians, are taking our tomatoes very seriously. Almost everybody with a garden or even a small corner in a balcony or kitchen or yard, will plant... continue reading
Hello dear visitors and readers!I'm not a professional photographer. All photos exclusively of my daily life, they are not staged. Pictures do for myself, to remember and to admire them. I love substantive shoot, shoot those things and specials that surround me, which I like - mostly events of day- hike on the nature and restoration of antiques, vacation in a cozy atmosphere. I love nature, I love to cook original and tasty food, I love the rustic style in interior design, bath vacation, fishing... continue reading
Up until recently I had mainly taken photographs where I had most of the control over the elements - in that most of my subjects didn't move or there was one person or one animal and rarely a mix.I am currently completing a photography course and the topic choices for my current assignment were people, places or objects. As I had previously worked on places and objects (little movement in these topics) it was time to step out of my comfort zone and take the challenge - working with a person/people... continue reading
October 2014.As I recall, it was the first experience for me with the new master of beauty Alexandra. Image, or rather the makeup, long discussed, specified the items to the shooting and during the preparation of the model is directly in the dressing room. I wanted to add flavor to the image of the model, that is, everyday quality makeup seemed enough. In my fantasies were sparks and pieces of ice. We added a sparkle above the lip, and pieces of ice on the cilia and eyebrows, thus emphasizing... continue reading
As a photographer I tend to find that my creative side seems to go up and down, some days I'm full of ideas and other days everything seems to be overdone and there's nothing new and exciting to shoot. So around a year ago or so I saw a video on Youtube of a pro stock photographer shooting a fast jet, tonnes of gear and a team of people behind him to produce one shot. I thought that looks fun and I'm always looking to try new things, now I do not have a team of... continue reading

Some time ago I started a managed collection for images of comfort food. I had intended to write this blog back then, but got sidetracked. Now it is high time to get back to it.It's hard to define exactly what comfort food is, because it can be different things to different people. For me, comfort food is usually something homemade and simple. It might be a food that reminds me of my childhood, or just makes me feel warm and cozy on a cold day. Comfort food can be a snack, a main course or a dessert.... continue reading
Here is something that may help beginners in their approach to take a better shot. It is not technical stuff but more a way of thinking. Many pros will agree that creative thinking or "thinking out of box" can sometimes be very difficult thing to do. We are thinking beings and we all have our habits, fears, attitudes and all other mental stuff that actually make our individual profile. Many times this "setup" stands between our idea and its execution.I will share my experience. As I mentioned in... continue reading
