Florin began his journey into photography by taking pictures of youth and landscapes with a camera phone—that was all he could afford. Though limited by the capabilities of his camera phone, Florin took some amazing shots, and was encouraged to develop his skill.
One year ago he purchased a Nikon D90. Since then kept honing his craft with great determination and aesthetic sensibility. “My passion is to capture the small unnoticed things in life, and also the beauty of nature that surrounds us all the time, but that we often take for granted.” Utilizing his passion for photography, Florin has been working by photographing weddings, and upon the referral of friends.
“I have been impressed by Florin’s work from the beginning. I didn’t realize that the photography I fell in love with was coming off a cheap camera phone. With the proper tools there are no limits to this artist’s ability to create beauty. What an asset Florin is to people in Eastern Europe who may have limited resources but talent is available in young artists like Florin. He has a strong faith in God and believes this talent can be useful.”
Florin uses various lenses on his Nikon D90. He considers understanding lighting to be crucial for great shots and studies the various forms of light, flash, and reflection techniques. "There is a lot of different equipment available, but photography is an expensive avenue to get started in. So step by step I am increasing the set of tools that I have to work with."
