I’m not a big fan of autumn and I love it when winter finally comes. You know that feeling when you go outside and you can literally smell winter is coming and that snow is near – well, I live for those moments.
As you might guessed winter is my favourite season. Since I was a little kid I loved snow and everything winter has to offer. Everything is just so peaceful and beautiful and perfect. Some people turn grumpy in wintertime but I’m so much happier. Darkness and lack of sunshine or daylight just can’t bring me down.
But even though I love being outside even when it’s freezing (just give me snow and I can deal with anything in this world) I love that moment every morning when you wake up, get up and look through the window. You know when your sleep is over, when your room is cold and you love being under that blanket of yours. And when you get up that cold gets to you and you wake in a second. Then, you look though the window and you see it’s even colder outside and you love it that you’re inside, that you have time to make coffee or hot cocoa and that you have a whole beautiful day in front of you. The best feeling in this world!
Do you know this feeling? You’re welcome to share your photos.
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
When someone asks me why I love Burkina Faso so much and what's so special about it, I answer without any hesitation: the people. There's something in this country that connects the people together very strongly. Here, foreign visitors are warmly welcomed. And honestly, I think that the portraits I'm most proud of and that I really love are those shot in Burkina Faso. "Why," you ask?
Browsing through the Lomography website, you can find a lot of redscale shots, which are all done on color negative films. I asked myself if it’s possible to redscale a slide or chrome film and then cross process it. (And yes, it is.) In this tipster I’m going to teach you how to create the bloodiest homemade redscale film I've ever come across.

Water is synonymous to life, but everyone knows this does not apply to the vastness and depths of the Dead Sea. English photographer and wanderlust Maya Beano recollects the time she braved and swam on one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world.
