“I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process – an integral function of the universe.”
(R. Buckminster Fuller)
Who am I?
I’m a human being like all human beings; a human who understands that life does not have to be perfect to be happy. To me happiness consists in the freedom of choosing to be ourselves and also in doing something we really like.
My name is Alina, I’m 29 years old. In 2013 I started studying Law. In 2014 a Photography school. The passion for photography began exactly in the same year immediately after spending few days in The Danube Delta and capturing its beauty with a friend’s DSLR. That was the moment when I wanted to learn more about photography and also the moment when I wanted my own DSLR.
My first camera (yes you guessed, a compact one). Now I use a Nikon D7000/18-105mm/50mm and Tonality CK for editing my b&w images.
Why black and white?
It’s how I’d love The World to be; with more colourful souls of course.
What type of photography attracts me?
Photography is like a refuge for me and since I discovered it I see The World with different eyes. I like the idea that I can photograph anything, anywhere, anytime. When I photograph I do it with my heart and for myself, not to become a rock-star.
Thank you for stopping by.
