Photography Challenge #9

Time for some moody shots. As I said in my Instagram post last week, there’s two ways to do this. Get someone in the shot or edit the photo in a “moody” way. Since I don’t go to people to ask them to be in my photos, I chose with the second option. This is […]

Photography Challenge #8

I was excited for this one. The eight challenge required some guiding lines. There were a lot of options, but in the end I used my drone for the shot. If you haven’t found out yet, I enjoy making panoramas out of multiple pictures. This Dogwood52 challenge gave me the opportunity to create two of […]

Photography Challenge #7

The 7th challenge of the Dogwood52 photography project isn’t much of a challenge at all. It’s called “Selfie” and it couldn’t have been easier. The time was right, the place was perfect, namely the honeymoon. Although I had the Sony 20mm f/2.8 on the camera at that time, my long hands made up for the […]

Photography Challenge #6

This one’s for those who believe a dedicated camera will make you a better photographer. To some extent it does. But the most important factor when photographing anything is light. The 6th Dogwood52 challenge is called “No Filter”. So no fancy edits, no wild colouring, just the basic exposure settings. What’s great about this photo […]

The fifth challenge of the year revolved around landscape symmetry. Again, being in Thailand, opportunities were abundant: Palm trees are not something you see often in Romania, let alone placed in rows. Thailand has them by the millions, and I love the symmetry of it all. Here’s the original: If you’re visiting this blog for […]

Here’s the fourth, with the next ones coming in the following days. The “warmth” theme was perfect for traveling to a country where summer lasts all […]

Photography Challenge #3

Black and white photography. It’s as simple as that. No rules, no themes, just black and white. During winter time, the sun is lower in the sky than in the summer. So at around 2PM I get lovely shadows I can play with. And if the photo is overexposed, this time I leaned into it […]

Photography Challenge #2

Whenever there’s a foggy couple of days I get stressed. Usually, there’s no color to work with so I just wait for the weather to get better. However, the second challenge of the year focused on motion and on the rule of thirds. Since I was stuck at work for the entire day, I had […]

Photography Challenge #1

This is the first challenge of the year, part of the Dogwood52 calendar. The aim was to tell a story taking a self-portrait, but without showing my face. Take a picture that tells us who you are, without actually showing your face. I started with this: Initially, I wanted to focus on both my body […]
