Interview with photographer Helene Cook

Hello again and welcome to a new interview with another photographer. This time I had the chance to talk to Hélène Cook, a Brussels-based hobby photographer. She started photography a few years ago and she is a member of the Viewfinders’ Photography Club since 2017. She participated for the first time to an exhibition in October 2018 called “Schieven Regards”, which was organised by the Collective of photographers “Bruxelles Pixels”.

Now, after seeing her active and valuable contribution to the club, from the perspective of a member in the club’s committee and after being impressed by her portfolio and her approach in photography, I wanted to find out more about how she sees photography and share the answer with you. For this, I have prepared a set of questions, in order to find out about who is behind the photographs.

To get a complete overview of the totality of the menu settings for Fujifilm X-Pro2, the best way is to download and read the PDF user manual. I won’t get into that kind of technical details, but I’ll tell you about the settings that I use for the Color Profiles.

Backup Files on-the-go or the RAVPOWER FileHub RP-WD03 review

This is my first cheap & compact solution for photo backup while travelling without a laptop, or a tablet. As I feel we consume a lot of our very limited spare time on post-processing our photos, archiving them, sharing them on social networks, then what we have left for the actual very enjoyable process of capturing those images? I love to photograph! I may find the time to deal with my old photo files, later, but when I travel and I am in a beautiful location, I feel it’s a chance that I have to grab and I need to make the best of it.
