Portraiture (the stories the objects said)

This is yet another story about the friendship — and it had such an interesting beginning. I met Eoin more than two years ago in front of the big gates of the Trinity college: not that I asked for some directions, but for him to take a photograph. Our conversation, I believe, would not appear if in that moment, in the spot where I wanted to stand, a large group of tourist stopped to discuss something. The unpleasant silence that appeared afterwards was broken with a simple question: “Are you a student over here?” He answered: “Yes, I study philosophy.” This was a certain beginning with no end.

After hearing the answer, that one photograph was not important any more: what was important is meeting somebody who studies philosophy, who is sincere, clever and ready to discuss. Eventually, that one photograph was made, somewhere in-between our half an hour conversation, with our contacts exchanged. The photo story that follows is the story of his, told by the objects he uses.

Urban style photoshoot

It has been more than three months since my friend and I saw each other the last time. When we met, the first thing we did was sharing all the great news from our lives, where did we go and what we saw. My friend is very cheerful  and he can make anyone laugh. I am more serious though, but I found myself being very silly when we’re together. We are friends since 2004 so that sense of silliness comes naturally  and it is so enjoyable.

Since that last meeting, a very great thing happened to my photography I put an effort in learning Lightroom and that is one of the best things that could ever happen to my photography actually, so good that I questioned myself how could I possibly even start shooting without knowing it first?! If there is any piece of advice I could give on this field, it would be: shoot Raw from the beginning and learn Lightroom!

Testing my camera and lens

My camera took me to the wonderful places – I do not even know where I have been in the research for inspiration. My phone counted 30 000 steps in two days. A month ago I bought Canon EOS 80D and recently joined it with my profoundly chosen lens, Sigma 18-35 mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art. This chapter is mostly concentrated on the very first photographs I took with that combination.

Discovering the unknown

It could be said that my love for photography started to grow about six years ago. In the accordance with the student budget, the beginning of it was Nikon compact camera which served me very well up to three years. Even though I did not take it very seriously back then, I put many efforts in the moments I wanted to capture. More than anything else, I desired for my eyes to be practiced for it.
