About me

I was born in December 1943 in Thessaloniki Greece. I'm interested in History, Art, Archaeology theater and cinema in which I like to refer in my photos. My themes are mainly landscapes, ecology and nature, thus I love "static" photography using tripod, hand photometer and quite often medium format. In the last years I'm tending more to the digital field and I beleive that "raw quality" is perhaps the greatest benefit that digital field offered to the photographer because through that the image emerges as an untouched fruit waiting peel off to reveal its juice. I prefer handling natural light tending to the so called "pictorial" photography because to my opinion- as much controversial this may sound- in a such you can better approach the reality of subjects. A reality that may not always be tangible or as much obvious as everybody thinks it is through the lens. Also, on certain occasions, tending to an expressionistic approach, I like to add dimension and even enhance the impact of this reality by highlighting certain points that may pass unobserved but, in the same time, do not belong to the imagination.
Documentary and journalism photography refering to social problems and everyday life is also very much to my liking.
My favourite equipment are the D700 and D800 from the NIKON family with a collection of dedicated, SIGMA, and TAMRON lenses and from medium format a 645D Autofocus MAMIYA( PHASE ONE) with a LEAF APTUS D22 digital back.
I must admit, that I am a rather old fashioned darkroom obsessionist stuck to some past principles that gradually are becoming benevolent ghosts in happy dreams only. For me Ansel Adams will remain an unsurpassed leader.
It's not always easy to have good teachers in photography so, i beleive,it is much better to learn from each other and there is always time for that..
I thank you all for offering this chance to me.

    thank you dear Alexander, I am now posting on facebook, I do not feel bad, there are good photographers who were in fc. I do not know if I will be back in fc, I will decide in September, at the moment I am renewing the three month subscription in three months. I also miss some friends, even you dear friend, but fc strongly disappointed me.
    I wish you a happy time, I will come and greet you from time to time.
    un abbraccio, Adriana

    ciao Alexander,
    in Italia i pareri son discordi e non sempre si è comportato militarmente in modo "pulito"
    ti auguro una buona giornata
