“Exercise the brain” - Does it work that way? Is it possible, exercising the brain with certain tasks, to make it more robust and have faster reaction times? And will this also apply to photography, ie is there a "photographic muscle"?Read More
After a long and productive life, my 2010 MacBook has died. It went with me everywhere and did a good job, whether in the context of work or leisure. Despite its age and having never been top of the line even in its time, its Core 2 Duo processor was perfectly suited for all kinds of applications, even image editing tools, and I used it to process thousands of photos on Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
A new laptop then. But… MacBook or Windows?!

Talasnal is one of the existing schist villages of the Lousã mountain range, in Portugal. Located on a hill, the narrow, sloping streets form a labyrinth among the houses that are impeccably rebuilt.
Fuji X-E3 or Olympus E-M5 II?
Hard choice! I haven't yet decided to use just one system. While on the one hand the Olympus is an example of precision and attention to detail, technology-packed and weather-resistant, the Fuji is a please to use with its "analog" commands and produces extremely flexible and workable files, allowing you to recover enough information in both the shadows and the highlights.
Is one camera and one lens sufficient for all my photographic projects? Will the Olympus E-M5 Mk II and the M.Zuiko 25mm f/1.2 be the right choice for 99% of the photographs I make?Read More
It is an honor to have my work published in the 63rd issue of the Inspired Eye magazine. The interview refers to my project on the pilgrimage to Fátima, illustrated by a series of images of my various visits to the Sanctuary.Read More
Back in March, I had the chance to review the Simplr M1a Mirrorless camera strap for the Fuji X Passion website. I really enjoyed it and have been using this a lot since then. But how can something good get better? Making it simpler! Or should I say, Simplr?Read More
