Introducing myself and some results of my best hobby

posted on 15th of may, 2008

My name is Catalin Petolea, I am from Romania.

As a day job I am senior software developer working for a large company.

And as everybody can guess, photography is one of my hobbies. The most important one, I would say.
In fact, I'd exchange writing code for photography at any time, but unfortunately I am new to microstock and it needs time.

What I like to shoot... almost everything.
In my portfolio you'll find many areas covered - landscapes, portraits, macro, isolations.

In the last few weeks I have enlarged my portfolio to over 500 images, due to the fact that I had several free days to spend in mountains or other remote locations. I enjoy hiking.

Here are a few of my images that I would like to present to you.

Spa in nature. A beautiful model, sunny day and a meadow... means a good series of outdoor photos:

While shooting with the model, I noticed this little fellow in grass, hanging off of dandelions and I couldn't resist. Grabbed my macro 60mm and...

This is my son, awesome kid

And this is my wife, when I finally convinced her to pose for me holding some "business" equipment. A PDA in this case

I always like to experiment techniques. On this photo I used light painting

Soon I will come with more photos and with a new style of post-processing. Some of these "new-style" photos are in pending now and I hope they'll be available soon.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog :)
