More about me...

Not much else to say about me. I am a civil engineer and i work for a construction company. I am based in Oporto, Portugal but currently living in Maputo, Mozambique

I love taking pictures. I am still trying to like digital photography as much as i like (now) old fashioned film photography. I don't like too much editing done on the pics and I prefer pictures that portray reality as it is.

Unless stated otherwise, my pictures are not manipulated meaning they:
- are always a single uninterrupted exposure;
- are sometimes cropped;
- can have some common adjustments to the entire image ( e.g., color temperature, curves, sharpening, desaturation to black and white, etc.);
- can have dust spots on sensor cloned out.
(Unmanipulated criteria as defined on photo.net)

  2. Pentax K10D (digital SLR) (since 08.2007)
