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 […]
Summer dusk on Charles’ river
Recently I did not had/took a lot of opportunities to practice photography as I used to do when I was abroad…It seems quite usual to be more lazy when back home, the typical “I-have-time, I-can-take-that-picture-tomorrow” syndrome.. I’ll try to do better in 2020…But in the meantime, I still have some archive to explore, like these […]
The Dahlia’s Iris
Continuation of the previous post, focusing on the subtle details of the flower’s core and its multiple layers…
When reviewing my photo library the other day, it was obvious flowers are not my primary source of inspiration :-). Long ago, I used an amaryllis bud for a studio session … and that’s all! Well, until that visit to a botanic garden in Italia…where I was the amazed spectator of a show I never saw before (we […]
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.
Self -ie or -portrait ?
Yesterday, to experiment a simple light setup (one large but directional light on top of the subject), I had no other model to play with, but myself. Looking at results, I wondered… Are these images selfies or self-portraits ? What a fundamental question: which difference between self-portrait and selfie ! According to the significant number of pages […]
