It was a clear sky week-end, just after temperature started to drop. Mid-mountain had just received its first snow, earlier than usual, and the low morning light was bringing out fall foliage colors from the monochrome background. After a few weeks of a comfortable and connected kind of hibernation, it seems I’m not the only […]
One of the most recurring sentences I keep hearing from people who manifest a basic interest for photography relate to weather: “Not a good time for photo, there is no sun” or “It’s a sunny day, let’s take some photos”. Sure, when sky is flat, with a light gray and no directional light, any landscape […]
It was one of these foggy days where everything seems to fade to white. Being in Acadia National Park only for a few days, we left our small cabin for an early walk around Jordan Pond. Apart a couple of humans and some deers, we were alone in the world. Among various images captured that […]
Landscape and Portrait
When photography started to be an important part in my life, I had the chance to become friend with a photographer who created a school for photojournalists in the 80’s. I still remember all the precious advices I learned from him, in particular one universal enough to be useful everyday: taking always both landscape and […]
Morning Winter light
The hotel was a few hundred meters from my destination, so I decided to walk. It was a windy day, clouds were approaching quickly. Car park was just behind me when a ray of light changed the whole landscape. I had time to take only two pictures before the sun was gone… This working day […]
First post after a long period with so little time, as an attempt to calm the pace … Fluid wave movements become cotton lines, a white yacht catches a ray of light. I feel my mind working like the shutter, slowly…and I enjoy it.
It was just about cold and silence…
For many people, snow is quite common during winter. For some, it’s rare enough to become the main topic of conversation when it happens, and a few centimeters of snow can even block all human activities (so that our Canadian friends can laugh about us !). It’s what happened two days ago on the French […]
The square, the ramp and the tower.
This weekend I have seen my oldest friend who used to work in cinema and has facilitated writing workshops. His latest project was to select images from a friend photographer (according to a certain theme), and to write corresponding text as if the whole exhibition was the storyboard of an unknown movie. I’m wondering what […]
There’s something special about being alone in front of a breathtaking scenery, it’s like having a rare privilege. Waking up before everyone, walking in the dark, waiting for the sun to rise slowly, hear no other sound than waves and birds … Maybe my camera was just an excuse to stand in front of the […]
