Florence in Brittany

Beginning of March is not a very warm time but we had a vision and we went for it because that is how we roll. Also as the weather in Brittany is crazy and so if you see the sun it doesn’t mean it’s going to be there in 10 minutes. And that means go go go! So imagine this – early morning, 5 degrees Celsius, high tide ( which we didn’t expect at all), and this courageous lady in a dress, well and also me running around like crazy so I’m freezing and sweating at the same time XD

Anyways, fun times.




Sarah and the Vosges

What do you do on a sunny weekend? I make people hike to mountain lakes and take pictures.

The place is truely amazing as well as Sarah, who patiently climbed every rock that looked good)



I’m what you might call an action hoarder, but the thing is, after the initial “Oh yes! I need this in my life!” most actions just sit there, because they are a bit too “special”. Here is where the Sleeklens actions enter. I am currently using the “Landscape Adventure collection” and it really does add that extra 10% and cuts editing time. There are basic actions that let you tweak details like highlights, clarity, etc. and “all in one” actions, that give you a finished effect. They may seem a little too extra at first but you can make good use of the masks and give the photo a polished look. I’m obsessed with the Morning light action at the moment. I’ve only just started fiddling around with these actions but they are sure to become an integral part of my workflow.

P.s. You can also apply these to portraits 😉

Wisteria Lane

There is this magical place in Strasbourg where just for a brief time in the spring you can be transported into a fairytale. The only downside to photoshoots there is the amout of people who also want to be a part of the beauty, so you’ll end up spending a lot of time waiting around to get the feet out of the capture)

Sakura Time

A great spring day when we turned over every blossoming tree and bush over in Esplanade, Strasbourg. As it turns out taking photos on a cloudy day has its advantages.
