WHERE DO YOU FIND YOUR INSPIRATION?
My inspiration comes mostly from the surrounding nature, I want to share the beauty of it as I experience it.
WHAT KIND OF CAMERA EQUIPMENT DO YOU HAVE?
At the moment I'm using Sony A7. Most of my work I'm photographing with manual lenses -that's how I learned back in the days. I feel unconfident with autofocus, like not having a full control of everything. I'm also a big fan of old manual lenses, they are simply beautiful and sharp (some of them, not all). Some of my most used lenses are
- Samyang 14mm f2.8
- Canon FD 24mm f2.8
- Canon FD 35mm f2.8
- Olympus 50mm f1.8
- Minolta MD 70-200 f4
- Benro tripod and slightly modified Patagonia Black Hole 32L backpack.
WHAT KIND OF POST-PROCESSING SOFTWARE DO YOU USE?
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, and Photoshop CC.
DO YOU HAVE ADVICE FOR OTHER STARTING PHOTOGRAPHERS?
Keep on taking photos and eventually, you will find your vision and style. Some find it quicker than others, but there is no easy route.
