The first school I’ve finished was University of Construction, beeing construction engineer, and the second one was University of Mathematics and Computer Science.After this one I’ve done Master in Computer Science. The last school was Arts and Technical Photography.The photography fascinated me from childhood, and the first camera, was a Smena, a russian camera on film.I’ve started to shoot in 1983. Today I use DSLR cameras, but I don’t forget the film cameras, so I shoot on film even today.One day I’ll post photos done on film. The conclusion is I love to learn, to read, and of course visual arts.I like paintings and pictures, classical and crossover music, I like mountains and the sea, everything is beautiful. My vision in photography is a little bit different from others, I prefer to set my camera as perfectly as I can, and to use software (Lightroom or Photoshop), for little rares and to put my name on it. I use different cameras, from Olympus, Pentax to Nikon or Canon fullframe for digital photography and on film from Voigtlander to Nikon even Russian cameras, and be sure I love them all. Digital Cameras and Lenses that I used for my art : -Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 7D, Canon 550D. For all Canon camera I use these lenses: -Canon 24-105 mm/L f4 -Canon 14-40 mm/L f4 -Samyang 85 mm/f1.4 -Samyang 8mm/f3.5 (fisheye) -Canon 50mm/f1.8 -Tamron 70-300mm/f4-5.6 Blitz Canon 430 EX -Nikon D7100, Nikon D90. For Nikon camera I use these lenses: -Nikon 18-105mm/f3.5-5.6GED -Sigma 17-70mm/f2.8-4DC -Nikon 50mm/f1.8 -Nikon 55-200mm/f3.5-5.6 -Tamron 90mm/f2.8 (macro). Blitz Nikon SB-700 -Pentax K5, Pentax Kr with lenses Sigma 18-200mm/f3.5-6.3 ; Pentax 35mm/f2.4 -Tokina 135mm, Tokina 35-70mm (45 years old). -Sony A35 with lenses Sony 35mm/f1.8, Minolta 35-70mm/f2.8-4.5, Tamron 55-200mm/f3.5-6.3 Olympus E450 with lenses Olympus 14-42mm and 40-140mm. Mirrorles cameras: -Olympus EP1;Olympus EPL1.Lenses Olympus 17mm/f2.8,Olympus 14-42mm. -Lumix/Panasonic DMC-G3 with 14-40mm. -Sony NEX5 with lenses Sony 16-50mm and Sigma 19mm, 30mm, 60mm all with f2.8. I could say that the lenses of Panasonic and Olympus have the same bayonett. Others: -Tripod Cullmann Magnesit 522 -Monopod Slik 350 -polarization filters for every lens. -nd filters -nd gradual filters -art filters -Adobe Lightroom 5 and many others. And of course Cameras on film as I said before, and many other photographic technical equipment. Offf it’s a very expensive pleasure.
