When I first became interested in photography several years ago, I was focused exclusively on landscapes. I then saw photography as a hobby that could push me to reconnect with nature and discover the beauty of places that were unknown to me, but I didn't care to photograph people. Thus years have passed and as I went on my travels I met people whose way of life, faces or background inspired me. But I didn’t

I see photography as a tool of personal expression. So why do we have this tendency to copy each others work? Of course, it’s always comforting to know that we’re able to reproduce a photograph we admire, but then why show it to the world if it doesn’t represent what we saw? Isn’t it more rewarding to create something on our own, something that represents us? Or at least try to? It is interesting to see

It is hard to be conscious of what is happening around you when after hours of research you finally found an interesting subject to photograph.

And as crazy as it may sound (sarcasm), blurry photographs can have a soul too (reality)! It drives me mad when I see photographers getting

We have the ability to store thousands of shots in one small memory card, making us think that the more we take photographs, the more chances we have to end up with good ones. But I have a scoop for you: if you want to make better photographs, you first need to relax, get a cup of coffee, and read this. Now that we aren’t limited by the number of rolls of film we’ve got in

The global world we’re living in implies people to rely more and more on English as a shared language. Wherever you go, there is a strong chance you’ll find someone speaking at least a little bit of it. That’s why, as a traveler and a photographer, it’s a valuable skill to develop. However, English might not be the Holy Grail to make better photographs. Nobody can deny how convenient it is to share a common language
