Kornel Flint – UK-based, polish-born photographer, after moving to London early 2012, he fell in love with the city and ever since, every now and then, he loves to grab his camera, tripod and go out to shoot his new home city. He uses a Sony A700 + 16-105mm f3.5-5.6 lens and some Cokin ND filters, adding an amazing HDR-like effect to his images. The results are truly magical.
My style is based on creating a picture that is not commonly seen in today’s media, vivid, powerful, would be hard to reproduce, and is going to make the viewer stop and wonder for a bit. – says Flint. – The most common misconception is that you need a pro camera, pro lenses, best gear plausible, I am not saying that is not going to improve the quality of the picture by lower noise level, sharper, more detailed pictures, but spending x amount on gear won’t make you “see the picture better”.
