The Austerlitz train station is Paris, France, is undergoing some very serious works in order to get modernized, and also extended with four new platforms that has been finished a few months ago. This newer section of the station features a much more modern design than the 1840 architecture of the main building. It really offers some great lines and lights for the photographer 🙂

A few fine art prints…

I was lucky enough to have a few orders from new and returning customers for fine art prints. I’m a big advocate of prints as it is for me the ultimate way to enjoy a photo. Some even say that a photo doesn’t even exist before it is printed! In this digital age this are not so black or white, but I do agree that a digital representation of a photo doesn’t do it justice.

All those photos are available on my shop. They are available in 3 default sizes, 45×30 cm 60×45 cm and 90×60 cm, printed on high quality paper, but any size or support is possible! Contact me to get a quote for any special order, for any of my photos, be on this site or on Instagram.

I’ve just moved to my new house and, for the first time for a too long time, I just got an idea for what could be a great photo. I searched for my gear across multiple boxes, found pretty much everything but… no battery nor charger. I just had the one in the Canon 6D, that was blinking to its death. The challenge was then to make a strobe’d autoportrait in just a few shots, and without remote.

Yeah, fun.

The first shot was both a focus preparation with my empty desk chair to simulate my head and a rapid lighting test. Then I sat on a stool and took 3 shots, before the camera died. Loading the photos in the computer from last to first, big disappointment, the photos just suck… until I reach for my very first test photo, where I noticed something I haven’t even seen at first on the camera’s screen: my cat, Yoko, has invited herself in the shot, and seemed very interested by this bright thing.

It definitively saved my day.
