Street Photography – Sunset next to Burj Khalifa

I grabbed my camera the other day and went to the Center of Now, to the Burj Khalifa. I was planning to capture a few cars honestly, however since its Ramadam and everyone is having their Iftar around evening, apparently no one is driving to Dubai Mall. As I walking around up and down, I … Continue reading Street Photography – Sunset next to Burj Khalifa

Photo shooting – Desert

Again desert. Only this time, it was early in the morning with the target in mind to catch the sunrise. And we did. I shot with the same equipment, Nikon D7100 with my fav 50mm 1.8. Post processing was done in Lightroom/Photoshop on a new laptop I bought from one of my friends. The laptop … Continue reading Photo shooting – Desert

Gourmet Presentation – Steak and fries

As I was saying a while ago, I decided that when I don't have any shoots scheduled, I would still attend a photo assignment. Since Its extremely hot in Dubai these days (37 degrees in the morning before 9AM), the only photos I can take are the ones on my balcony. I'm setting up the … Continue reading Gourmet Presentation – Steak and fries

New project – Gourmet Presentation

Since sometimes I cannot find people to go out for a photo shoot and since in Dubai it started to be extremely hot to wonder the streets, I decided to approach also other photography "perspectives". One of them is "Gourmet presentation" or in other words "Food Photography". I've looked for some vintage cutlery back home … Continue reading New project – Gourmet Presentation

Photo Shooting – Toddler

This was an old idea I had in my first "beginner in photography" days - I was thinking to shoot toddlers. Since I didn't had the opportunity (the approach was quite difficult since I didn't ha a portfolio) and also I was a newbie about photograph, I didn't do it. Until last month I was … Continue reading Photo Shooting – Toddler

Photo shooting – Al Mamzar Beach

Went out and “tested” my latest location – Al Mamzar Beach and Park. One of my Romanian friend would like to start and sell some traditional Romanians items and we agreed to go out for a photo shoot. I did about 956 photos – I used the same camera and my old lens – Nikon D7100 with … Continue reading Photo shooting – Al Mamzar Beach

Al Mamzar Beach

Thinking to diversify my locations portfolio I went to Al Mamzar Beach and Park to see if in the future I'll come here, I have something I can work with. I was pleasantly surprise. From a man made lagoon, to a beautiful park I can find a lot of nice landmarks I can use. I … Continue reading Al Mamzar Beach

Next step – Social Media

Lately because of a lot of busy days at work I didn't had a chance to go out and take photos. Instead in the rather limited time I had, Ive opened my Facebook account, Instagram and Pinterest. I'm still struggling to cope with other's people schedule in order for me to do photo shots however … Continue reading Next step – Social Media

Photo shooting – Arabian Desert

I had the biggest luck ever a few days back, one of my favorite couple agreed to have a "Couple Photography Session" in the Arabian Desert somewhere around 1h30min driving from Dubai. I did about 450 photos – I used the same camera and my new lens – Nikon D7100 with AF-S Nikkor 50mm 1.8Gwitht a hood … Continue reading Photo shooting – Arabian Desert

AF-S Nikkor 50mm 1.8G is … here

In a post in the beginning of my photography journey I came to the conclusion (this conclusion) that my next future lens should be a AF-S Nikkor 85 mm 1.8G. In the mean time, after reading and watching a lot of videos about photography I've started to think about buying AF-S Nikkor 50mm 1.4G. Fast … Continue reading AF-S Nikkor 50mm 1.8G is … here
