My practice of photography intensified in 2017
after years of enthusiast experience.
One of my favorite accessories is an ordinary tripod, quite simply because it allows you to take long exposures to capture a maximum of photons in low light conditions, and so to deliver details that are often indistinguishable by the eye.
When traveling, I usually go with a heavy load in my backpack, in order to have on hand the optical system perfectly compatible with the subject to capture.
In architecture, I am particularly sensitive to light, lighting and angle of view. One of my major concerns is also to communicate the atmosphere. The places I photograph are mainly located in Laos, where I live, in Japan sometimes and Singapore.
