This is a blog about my digital art, design, photography and various random thoughts.

Castles in the sky

November 8, 2013

A personal project after an image I had in my head for years. Used digital painting on a Cintiq and added cloud details from photos I shot.         And a couple of WIP steps.           And finally, voila!  

A MUST READ: “The beginning of Infinity”

April 27, 2013

One of the best book I have ever read. Or how people have used ideas/conjectures to explain the reality around them, what makes for a good explanation and how useful ideas tend to replicate themselves(memes) just like living organisms. David Deutsch argues that we are merely vessels of information replicating itself and our theories(explanations) are […]

Auschwitz

ARBEIT MACHT FREI Arbeit Macht Frei or “Labour makes you free” is posted over the entrance to the Stammlager. That slogan must be the most sadistic/subliminal phrase ever conceived by the human mind. Between 1942 and 1945 over one million pair of eyes have seen it and knew exactly what it meant. Working to death. […]

The 6 C’s of Composition

April 15, 2013

Been talking to a friend a while ago about what exactly makes an image stand out. What are the unique ingredients of a great picture and why a DSLR photo looks better than one taken with a point and shoot camera? The whole discussion started with photography, but then after a while it transitioned into […]

A Boy Entertainment photoshoot

March 22, 2012

Actually, this is my first photoshoot in LA. I did this with the boys and girls from A Boy Entertainment about three weeks ago. We met through common friends, they saw some of my stuff and wanted to give it a go. They were into hip hop, I was into photography. Perfect match. Some making […]

The Hollywood Issue

Beyonce is having a baby, someone else famous is filing for a divorce, guess it’s just business as usual in Hollywood. If you’re not that fortunate you might instead be cleaning the streets, sleeping on them, marrying for papers or some other random destiny. What’s the big difference anyway? Oh, they will be writing about […]

Misery Deluxe

This image has a whole story behind it. I worked on this piece for more or less 2 weeks, hitting countless dead ends, pitfalls and creative blocks. All things considered, it’s a metaphor for love that can sometimes take an unwanted path leading to inevitable backstabbing and things you wish you had never known. Every […]

First video – “Doar Azi”

November 5, 2011

0

Well, it’s been a while.. I’m going to start again with the classic “if someone had told me”. If someone had told me that during august, in 6 days I will shoot my first video from scratch, after I had never filmed, that I will personally edit it although I had never did it before, […]

Delia at City Plaza

November 5, 2011

This time the location was City Plaza, a very nice hotel in the heart of Cluj. I went there to help Laura with her photoshoot of the new Cherie Marie collection. We shot in a presidential condo, so big, you could roll on your bike inside. The space was huge. There was lots of it, […]

Polus Center

Another interesting project. Polus Cluj, one of the city’s malls wanted some new pictures for their next promotional materials. I knew the place because I’ve been there on many occasion, sometimes for taking photos (see Iron Maiden). We initially planned just to take a walk through the mall and take pics of random clients. After […]
