24th December 2022

We recently had a few inches of snow in London. Almost perfect timing for the Xmas period! 🙂 The snow in London didn’t last long, but it was enough to cover the city with a fluffy white blanket. Which is always a lovely scene to behold. Last year as well, we had one day of snow, and I documented it in a YouTube video. I was still living close to the city...

Covid 19 mask of plague AI
5th December 2022

And so, I caught Covid. I had managed to avoid it for 3 years, even when it was spreading in full swing. And in my house, we have always been careful and responsible. But it’s happened. I’m sure the Covid variant is far less severe than the one that killed millions worldwide. We’re supposed to be at a stage where this should be comparable to influenza, with mild flu symptoms. But I’ve...

Street Photography in Istanbul | Photographing the world Episode 1 Youtube
21st September 2022

The new “Photographing The World” Series starts here, and we kick off with Street Photography in Istanbul! This video was long due, but I came back from Istanbul with 6+ hours of footage and almost 1Tb of photos… All over the place. I was to give you a full-length docu-vlog of about 20-25 minutes. But then I thought a small pill format would have been much more palatable (pun intended). So here...

Midjourney Professional Photographer Vs Artificial Intelligence AI Digital Portrait
1st September 2022

I found myself deep into the Midjourney rabbit hole. And my goodness, how much I enjoy it 🙂There’s been a proliferation of creative AI lately. Dall-E, Midjourney, Stable Diffusion and Craiyon are maybe the first iterations of an entirely new creative ecosystem. And one that is already producing mindblowing results (and sparkling controversies). For my latest video, I picked Midjourney because it seemed a perfect match to my style at first glance,...

Hoya Sparkle filters video review youtube
4th July 2022

Remember my Starry Nights short film? No? Well, it’s here to watch if you missed it: https://youtu.be/-1xWKCKgwG4 I mention it because I made that short film using the Hoya Sparkle filters, both 4x and 6x variants. These creative filters from Hoya make for very interesting results. But more importantly, they provide consistency and reliability to every image where you want to add a starburst effect (and maybe some soft diffusion). Something that...
