Kodak ColorPlus 200

Since I purchased my Pentax MX I’ve been using it a lot!! The Kodak ColorPlus 200 was the second film I tried. (If I don’t count the b&w film I didn’t set correctly in the camera and found out after 36 clicks that the film wasn’t winding). The Kodak ColorPlus 200 has a different tone […]

Ceahlau Massif panoramas

This autumn I took on the challenge to climb the Ceahlau Massif with my camera gear and reach the top, the Toaca Peak at 1904m. The view from the top was impressive any direction and the best way to bring a little bit of it back was to compose these wide panoramas. My gear for […]

Glasses and fairy lights

Editing fairy lights portraits

A quick example of fairy lights photography, a la Brandon Woelfel and the editing from underexposed image to something portfolio worthy. I shot these with a friend in her room. I already have a blog post about Brandon Woelfel photography where I’m deconstructing his style and this is an example of results using some of those tips. 🙂 […]

Flatlay camera on Fujifilm Superia X-tra

Fujifilm Superia X-tra 400

I tested my new 35mm camera, Pentax MX with the Fujifilm Superia X-tra 400 film this week. This was my first experience using a film SLR and was nervous about two things: Would the camera work properly? Would shooting film be worth it? The answer to both questions ended up being: Yessss!!! About Fujifilm Superia 400 […]

How I chose my first film SLR

I’m a digital photographer. It’s easy to shoot, once, twice, check later, tweak the exposure, shoot again. But I was always fascinated by film photography, nothing compares to the colours and the grain of a 35mm print. So a couple of months ago I went on a search for my first film SLR. We’re talking […]

Deconstructing photography styles: Brandon Woelfel

I am starting this series with a photographer that is very appreciated on Instagram. He built his name using an individual style that appeals to many, and especially to the young generation: Brandon Woelfel I really like it too: the colours, the fairy lights, the bokeh, the dreamy feel, the sleepy messy look, the glasses. In the search for your […]

Cluj Napoca Intersection

Cluj-Napoca streets and architecture

Since I moved away from Romania, visiting is always nostalgic, but now, as a tourist I seem to notice the beauty of it’s buildings and architecture more. This April I took my 35 mm lens and shot some images of Cluj-Napoca streets. I have to describe the style as eclectic. It’s a mish mash of old and new from […]

Happy family

Family portrait sessions

Family portrait sessions are a new venture for me but one that I have been interested in getting into for a while. Compared to the portrait and couple photoshoots they are more exciting, funny and even a little bit chaotic. Here are some of the lessons I had to learn when it comes to outdoor family […]
