Describe your favorite picture and how you captured it?
My favorite picture is my last art work, the “passing of time”. Collection,
Passage of time We are surrendered to the passage of time. It is the time that determines where and when we line in. Passage of time occurs inside all humans. Passage of time is like a mirror reflecting our behavior. Time flows in our souls.
In the present set, elements of clock and glasses represent the passage of time and avoiding eye contact with the viewer. In fact, passage of time occurs inside humans.
In three words how would you describe your photography?
sense, color, vision

I’m so positive about this matter, you can always have your high quality camera with you, it feels so good that you can capture moments whenever you want.
What are your thoughts on expensive cameras? Do you think they create better images?.
As a Hasselblad X1D lover, I can’t deny the fact that expensive cameras can make the magic, but as a photographer I can’t believe in money in art work, generally it’s the vision and professionally that appears in the fine art, not the brand, money etc.
