About me:

More of various kinds of street photography than anything else. Short stories wrapped in with some background, usually more interesting for me than others :). Growing from a screaming-out-of-balance framing to a kinda serenity, Ommm... Paid for a few weddings. Conscious snapping started with Ricoh/Pentax shooting still life and family while capturing strangers is still being a continuous challenge. How to capture the intimate subtlety without being intrusive, without getting in a way of that natural flow of life, a moment...

Reel film gear
- Pentax MX + Pentax M 2,8/100 + M 1,7/50 + Sigma 2,8/24 AF (handy with nice OOF rendering) + Sigma AF 1,8/28 Asph II (quite sharp from wide open, well centered)

- Mamyia NC1000S with Sekor 2,8/28 + 1,7/50 (2,8/138 was stollen)


- Pentax APS-C (KP + K50)
- M43 (Oly M10 Mark IV + Pan GX80)
