How did I come to photography?
I started photography by chance by subscribing to instagram in April 2011. I immediately became addicted: I post 1 to 3 photos a day on Instagram, images that I capture at random from my walks and business trips.
I like long walks of discovery, spicing up the images here and there. These are special moments, with artistic research and a desire to share.
The photos are taken instantly (little preparation time) and reworked on the smartphone, usually with snapseed.
I seek to release a feeling of plenitude, to sublimate what my eyes see.
Colours are everywhere, sometimes with a slight saturation. Backlighting, the search for natural perspectives, reflections are elements often sought to give strength and relief to images. The photos are most often gaunt, without a vehicle or significant sign of urbanization (photo of nature). I really like old architecture.
Recently assiduous portrait painter, I now devote myself mainly to it.
Devices used: Huawei P30pro smartphone, Fujifilm X100T and my Fujifilm XT4 which I love.
