I love receiving feedback and questions. And it is truly an honor to be able to help with anything that you may need. Just drop your questions in the contact page, or ask below in the comment section, and I’ll make sure you get an answer.
What camera do you use?
Some of the photos were taken with a Nikon D90, a Nikon D7000, or a Fujifilm X-T3
You can find a post about all of the gear that I use, here.
What is your favorite lens?
Definitely the Fujinon XF 10-24mm, because it allows me to capture most of the scenes that I love to shoot. But the Fujinon kit lens 18-55mm f2.8 has actually produced some pretty interesting results as well. Those lenses are super sharp.
What editing system do you use for your photos?
I mainly use Capture One by Phase One. And sometimes I’ll also use Lightroom and Photoshop to do some minor edits. But I also use old school ND and Grad Filters to preserve sky colors or wherever needed.
Where did you learn photography?
My father is photographer, so I learned most about photography from him from a very young age. Then came post-processing, which I learned from my first job as an art photographer. It was really cool to learn because as an art and product photographer, preserving true color is essential. You can’t change the colors of a painting or a product otherwise you will be deceiving your viewers. And this is what differentiates a real photographer and content creator from a snapshot instagrammer who uses presets to make pictures look appealing. There’s a problem in the latter. It produces fake and deceiving content.
In order to make something that’s real look super stunning, you as a photographer have to be creative and use good technique.
Do you use presets? If so, do you sell or recommend any presets that you use?
I sometimes do use presets created by me, but only to jumpstart basic color grading. I’m not a fan of using other people’s presets, nor do I intend on selling presets. I’d playfully add, “don’t be lazy”. Find your own style and create your own presets instead of following trends. You’ll be far better off with your own work if you do.
