The girl and the Lighthouse. Presqu'île de Guérande, France, 2019.

The girl and the lighthouse. Presqu’île de Guérande, France, 2019. Get a print!

I’ve spent the last week-end on the Guérande peninsula in the south of Brittany, France. I’m not really the landscape type, but it’s a good thing to do different or new stuff, even more when it can bring some money 😀

My target was this lighthouse in Le Croisic, with the scope of going for a long exposure shot to get those silky water and moving sky effects. But she (and then her boyfriend) passed by me and my tripod mounted camera, and sat just there. Well, if you want to be in my frame, I’ll go for it!

The photo was shot at 200mm at f/2.8 for a great blurry depth of field effect. It has caused some reactions

Wandering in the streets of Orléans an evening with my friends from the Collectif PhotoRuelle phot club. And it was an excellent idea as they showed me the oldest street in Orléans, which is reknown for having cubblestones from the Joan of Ark period! It’s at least what the legend says…

Blur. Orléans, France, 2019. Get a print!

Another photo from my hometown, Orléans, France. This time I played with longer exposures in order to get this weird, blurred mood. Being a coffee addict really helps creating blur for this kind of photo! I wonder if I could start a project and make it a follow-up to Strangers in the Dark?

A rainy night in Bucharest – Bucharest, Romania, 2018. Get a print!

I love shooting the streets of Bucharest. I don’t know why, there is something that always inspires me. Some vide, I don’t know. But every single time I go there, I come back with at least one great photo.

This particular photo as been taken during a rainy night at my favourite spot in the Romanian capital, the Union Square (or Piata Unirii for the locals). It’s always full of lights, with an interesting design, and a good looking metro station entrance. A few shots from my portfolio have been done there… This shop’s showcase is a great example of what can be found there. With this yellow/orange lighting, the rain allowing a great reflection on the ground, it was just about waiting for the perfect subject to pass 🙂
