Good communication is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after.

Light & Shadow

Editing for black and white is quite interesting and it asks us to focus on a precise aspect of photography. Light and shadow. Forget color and its tone. You now see the same picture in a diferent way.

Still the cheapest way to feel this european mood for few days. And it’s North America, with a Canadian dollar that is worth nothing… 😦

Screwed and Owned…

Owned because I can’t make Photoshop work well in a Windows 10 virtual machine running under Linux… Ok sorry for the technical vocabulary. I am running Linux Ubuntu on my desktop and I can’t find any good photograhy software. So I feel owned by Adobe and Microsoft 😥

I wish I could get more from that picture. I can see aliasing…

I am looking to buy this coming fall a Sony Z5 cellphone (benchmark) which actually gives a nice 23Mpx. If I can make somthing good with it, I’ll be able to shoot AND to process every picture on this cellphone.

We’ll see.

I got screwed by time this week and I couldn’t work on these B&W as I thought I could. Hope that you’ll like it.

I got to tell you something… I broke my Tamron lens.. Now I have to use my old Canon, the one that came with the camera when I bought it. The quality is clearly lower than the Tamron. Can’t reach F2.8 at 50mm anymore… So bye bye Bokeh.

Also, I started to upload some of my favorite catches on Instagram, if any of you want to see them, it’s here.

Have a good week!

Back for few weeks

Black And White Photography, Mario, Meho, Photography

I’ve been invited by Joe to post on Monochromia for few weeks and I’ve found the idea interesting. I think it’s a good thing to reconnect with B&W photography so I will accept the invitation (…and the challenge).

Just between you and me… I find it quite hard to create B&W photos, in quantities. How I feel right now is that I have to pull out the most attractive part of a picture, meaning the colors and the whole dimension that comes with it. As an example (the first picture with the chateau) the tree is actually pink… 😉 So in this way, that is a real challenge to me. Everything must now lie in the structure, the framing and the subject.

But at the same time I think it’s funny because when I started photography, I couldn’t publish color photography because I wasn’t able to get the right colors I wanted o_O

Nice to be with you again!

That Night




He opened the door and a woman stood there on the porch with anxious eyes.

May I help you? Says the man.

Oh… I just want to see Eric.

Eric? There is no Eric in here

No Eric… ? Are you sure? Damn…

Of course I am…

She said nothing more, took two steps back and, just before he closed the door, he seen the depth of the inevitability in her face.

There was nothing to add. Nothing more to say. She had already thought of this possibility but wouldn’t believe it. What she feared the most in the last 6 years was now a reality….






I’m very busy at this 2014 start of the new school year. I would like to be more present, give more feedback on your images and more answers to your comments, but we will have to resume it later!
