Entirely self-taught, my passion for photography began in 2008 after I discovered a website called Flickr. Inspired by talented artists, I bought my first camera, a Pentax K10D, and I started reading everything I could to learn the basics, mainly from blogs and books, and then putting into practice in the field. Soon, I discovered a particular interest for landscape and natural light.
Approach to photography
I photograph in RAW format and process my images using Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CC. I try as much as possible to get everything right into the camera and only make subtle adjustments in Lightroom to keep a natural look to my photos. When I am faced with a scene that exceeds the dynamic range or the depth of field of my camera, I will manually blend several images in Photoshop using techniques such as luminosity masking or focus staking to overcome technical limitation of my gear. I also rely on Photoshop to stitch images for panoramas and to clone-stamp artifacts on my photos.
