Too often, I feel frustrated when discovering the images that I was the most eager to capture, because of the difference of what I felt when I stopped walking to look through the viewfinder, and what I see on the screen… I’m not talking about technical aspects, no, in fact, it’s more like if I […]
One of the most difficult exercice for a photographer is probably to share his sense of humor. Some great names like Martin Parr or Elliot Erwitt are able to show us their vision of a strange and funny world when we look at their work. But for many other, like me, it is more a […]
As I’m currently travelling and trying to capture new images, here is another memory from the Boston 2015 winter. Charles River was not fully frozen yet, and a group of ducks was visibly enjoying its new playfield!
When visiting Boston before our move back in 2014, someone said to us : “if you don’t like New England’s weather, wait 5mn…“ Indeed, weather changes can be spectacular, like just after that first snow storm end of January 2015. However, while the light was warm, temperature was well below zero Celsius, and my fingers […]
Having the chance to live abroad is obviously a great opportunity to capture images very different from our usual environment. It was the case for me during the Boston historic winter early 2015, when several snow storms brought up to 3m (100 inches) of white powder. While it was a pure logistic nightmare everyday, it […]

When attending a sport event or a show, except if being an official photographer, we barely choose light or emplacement. Sometimes, we may not even be allowed to take pictures (!!), so forget about pro gear and fast lenses. It can be interesting to deal with all these constraints, while trying to capture only the […]
Maybe because they are unusual, pictures taken from above with a tele lens are often interesting. As I was looking down from the Empire State Building, the traffic flow started to become abstract and aesthetic. I knew I just had to be patient…
Lightroom is really a fantastic tool to experiment what would have taken hours in the darkroom, in particular for local adjustments usually done on silver prints with a paintbrush and a potassium ferricyanide solution (to lighten some areas or details). The original idea present when capturing the image can then surface.
