Sunset by Paul Militaru
Paul Militaru – Photography Portfolio
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 full frame for digital photography and on film from Voigtlander to Nikon even Russian cameras, and be sure I love them all.
