tell us a bit about you and where you are from?
Born in october 1981, I live in the suburbs of Paris. I’ve never moved far from this city.
How and when did you get interested in photography?
I don’t know, I bought my first digital camera in 2004 on a whim. Maybe at the time I wanted to create something with my hand
what are two of your favorite photos that you have taken?
Which photographer’s works do you like?
your favorite photobloggers that you follow?
what kind of equipment do you use?
I began with a digital compact camera and now I’m using a Pentax K10D (with sigma 10-20, Pentax 35 mm F2, Pentax 50mn F1.4) and a Ricoh grd3 (28 mm F1.9). I think I’ve got a good equipment so it’s more easy for me to tell that the best camera is the one you have, but it’s my motto anyway !
o you have any formal training?
No formal photography training. Only practice and photo books reading...
do you use software to touch up photos? what do you use?
Yes, I use Lightroom. I use also photomatix for HDR photos and autopano for panorama
In my opinion, the post-treatment is inseparable of the photographic process but it doesn't replace the work during the shooting
What kind of pictures do you love to take?
I love street photography but it’s difficult for me, I don’t want to take people with a tele-zoom lens but I'm usually scared of the people reaction … I try to treat myself :-)
I love also take photo of abandoned place or natural landscape. I think my work is eclectic.
what inspires you?
All that is new to me but also clean, symmetric and geometric places in one way; trash, destroy and abandoned place in other way
where do you want to take your photography? publishing a book?
I’m thinking about it…
what else would you like to tell us?
I wish say more but writing in English is difficult for me... picture speaks louder than words so check out my site (http://www.sylvainmary.net)
