Chinese New Year 2018 – Chinatown, London

Format Image

When I arrived at Leicester Square this morning, I assumed there was no chance to see the New Year parade… So once again, I went behind the scenes and enjoyed the morning sun in a not yet busy Chinatown.

Happy New Year!

Re-creating a famous image – Alphonse Mucha: The Moon

Format Image

It's not easy to find the perfect model when you have a certain image in your head. Even if you find someone who meets your "visual requirements", there's still a chance that they simply can't bring the character to life. No offense, just a fact.

As I started a new life in another country a few years ago and I'm pretty bad in connecting people, I hardly meet any potential models. 🙁 Which is quite frustrating when you have so much in your head, but if you keep on believing in your mission, your prayers might be answered - sooner or later, haha . And she came.

Here's the first image of our second photoshoot which happened on the same day as the Madame Renarde series. I've always been fascinated by the glorious women on Alfonse Mucha's paintings. They're so powerfully inspiring, I believe that every lady has an idol among them. One of my favourite is this piece of The Moon and the Stars series.

It was Mother's day, so my first thing in the morning was running to Tesco and grab 2 huge bouquets of chrysanthemum. So yes, her "tiara" was made of real flowers. ^_^ We spent a great afternoon together. <3

Further pictures coming soon.

My lovely friend, Jasmin took me to Hackney’s city farm then we walked down the canal side. No need for more words, the pictures talk for themselves: the East is full of hidden treasures and FUN. 🙂Continue Reading

Beyond visible – IR photography

I have always been “gifted” with the ability to recall my dreams. Those visions are clearly there in my mind. Beautiful, bad, peaceful, disturbing, vivid or dark… whatever. I’ve been thinking a lot how to depict them. Since I’m not good enough in painting or drawing, I’m trying to find a way through something else. So far, infrared photography seems to be the right step forward to reach my goal. 🙂 (Continue reading to see the gallery.)Continue Reading

Kiev 4 experiment

Format Gallery

There are advertisements everywhere about Father’s day which makes me feel somewhat miserable as my father tragically passed away 6 years ago. As I mentioned before, father was an important person in my photography history. He won his Kiev 4 on a science competition during university and was very proud of it. So I’ve been thinking of experimenting with that camera recently to keep his memory alive.Continue Reading
