ABOUT ME

As much as I enjoy writing, I hate doing it about myself and that’s why I almost decided not to create this section. Bad move, I know. But still I will go on and say that I will mostly leave my work and posts to contour who I am, in order for you to get to know me. A brief intro will be a good start so … here we go!

I’m Alex, 24 years old, born and raised in Romania, currently living in UK where I’m in my final year at Coventry University, studying photography. I started to post a couple of months ago some of my work on Instagram and things escalated quickly in terms of engagement. More and more people were messaging me, curious to know how I was editing my images and where I was getting my inspiration from. I realised how much I actually enjoyed explaining and communicating my workflow and my activities and I started to use Insta Story to do so.

After a while I realised that what I was doing was actually a form of blogging, but my style consists of more photos and less words. Even though I enjoy writing in my spare time, mostly fiction, I personally prefer to let the photos do the job and speak for themselves. This helps me a lot when it comes to composition and the creative process. From that point it was only a matter of time until I made up my mind and decided to set up my own domain where I can write in detail about my interests.

Basically what you will find here is a mix of my babbling, photography and my artwork and from time to time I might bore you with some details of my life. What I must mention is that I will discuss and explain the process of making the images with most likes from Instagram and occasionally the gear used while travelling, settings and so on.

Hope you’ll enjoy!

Ro:

Pe cat de mult imi place sa scriu, pe atat de mult detest sa o fac cand vine vorba despre mine, iar din aceasta cauza aproape ca am decis sa nu mai fac aceasta sectiune. Miscare proasta, stiu. Chiar si asa am sa continui prin a va spune ca in cea mai mare parte am sa las munca mea sa vorbeasca pentru mine, cred ca asa este cel mai natural. O scurta introducere ar fi totusi un inceput bun, asa ca sa incepem!

Sunt Alex, am 24 de ani, nascuta si crescuta in Romania. Momentan locuiesc in Anglia aflandu-ma in ultimul an la facultatea din Coventry unde studiez fotografia. Acum cateva luni am inceput sa postez fotografii si lucrari de ale mele pe Instagram, si situatia a escaladat destul de repede. Din ce in ce mai multe persoane incepusera sa imi dea mesaje, curiosi sa afle cum imi editam pozele si de unde ma inspiram. Am realizat cat de mult imi place de fapt sa explic si sa comunic procesul meu de lucru si activitatile mele, asa ca am inceput sa folosesc Insta Story cu acest scop.

Dupa o vreme am realizat ca ceea ce faceam era de fapt o forma de blogging, stilul meu consistand in mai multe fotografii si mai putine cuvinte. Desi imi place sa scriu in timpul liber, in general fictiune, personal prefer sa las fotografiile sa isi faca treaba, sa vorbeasca de la sine. Asta ma ajuta foarte mult cu procesul creativ si compozitia unei imagini.

Practic ceea ce o sa gasiti aici este un mix al palavragerilor mele, fotografiile si lucrarile mele iar din cand in cand s-ar putea sa va plictisesc cu cateva detalii din viata mea. Ce trebuie sa mentionez este ca am sa discut si am sa explic procesul prin care am facut fotografiile cu cele mai multe like-uri pe Instagram si ocazional echipamentul folosit atunci cand calatoresc, setarile s.a.m.d.

Sper sa va placa!
