Nice to meet you

I've always had a passion for art. Form the young age I’ve been involving myself into the art through drawing, paper modeling, graphic design. There is no point that made me start taking photography a lot more serious, I just fell in love, slowly, deeply, with practice. Technology has expanded its visual possibilities, with different apparatuses and lenses, software programs and more. Making it possible to capture different types of photography in ways no one has seen before. 

In many of my images, I capture something that inducing an interest inside the person's mind; I want to the viewer see an ordinary thing in a new light. To show all the beauty of the world, unaffected by sizes or colors. Seeing ordinary things from my perspective, I found a new passion in false coloring - the color fictionalism, in proper definition. An error theory that denies physical color properties that objects actually possess. 

Artists have historically manipulated reality as a means to an end. For instance, even classical landscape painters did not simply paint exactly what they saw in front of them. Many subtly included, or excluded, elements that distracted from their message or, like Monet, worked with light and color to exude a mood. As a fine art photographer, I work in the same manner, simply using a camera instead of a brush. Creating a fantasy of any sort will open mind and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds.

Ansel Adams once stated, “Art implies control of reality, for reality itself possesses no sense of the aesthetic. Photography becomes art when certain controls are applied.” 

Deeper into my way of thinking, if a dozen photographers with tripods set their settings to the required exposure after light-metering and took an image of the landscape or object, the results would be images that would have recorded the scene millions of times before. I’ll be like the weird outcast at the school in this situation; standing and struggling for a moment or two, searching for the unusual angle or element. As a fine art photographer I will go beyond the literal representation of a scene or subject. I will try to express the feelings and vision of the photograph as deeply as I can at the moment, and clearly reveal that it was created by an artist and not by just the camera.
