For many photographers, the hardest part of a photographic project is settling on an idea. Fine art photography isn't so much about snapping as many photos as you can in the hope that you get the perfect shot. Instead, a good project takes lots of time, thought and research. Those three things are all part of the “creative process.” Want to learn more? I'll show you my basic creative process so that you can learn how to turn those half-formed ideas into works of art.It Starts with... continue reading

I like silhouette images very much. They look bright and well represent objects with clear contours and interesting shape.Silhouettes make the picture look more abstract.

They don't show a particular... continue reading
When we travel we make a series of shifts with all our equipment.For this reason in the planning of a photographic service, the choice of the correct photographic equipment is very important in order to avoid mistakes and problems for our work.When we operate in the natural environment we must consider the elements and the climatic adversities. In fact sand, water sprays, warm, salt and humidity can cause serious damages.Various small bags are necessary to protect the equipment in these situations.... continue reading
Most people don't deal well with rejection, especially not when it comes to their "art".But the truth is, its the rejection that can push us to become better at a quicker pace.For the most part, I'd say I'm a self taught photographer.I had a back ground in filmmaking and sort of fell into becoming a photographer.People responded well to my work and so I stuck with it and started to invest in equipment.Different photographic/social websites were of great use for confidence building and... continue reading
