I started taking photos in the mid-1970s with a Zenit camera and a Helios lens. In 1982-83, I completed a one-year course in analogue photography in Csíkszereda (Miercurea Ciuc), which laid the foundation for my photography skills, including image editing techniques. After the course, I joined the Hargita Photography Club and actively participated for ten years. My photos were recognized in several national competitions and I also had a few acceptances in international exhibitions.
After a 15-year break, I resumed photography during the digital era. Although I still use amateur equipment (which I increasingly realize has its limitations), I aspire to own a full-frame camera one day. Currently, I am a member of the Prizma Photography Club and actively engaged in photography. To me, photography means a lot. It is a separate world where I can truly be myself. When I’m taking photos, everything else fades away for a while, and I can fully concentrate on the subject. While I may not be a prominent figure in photography, I have received awards, distinctions, and acceptances in the digital era.
