My name is Dmitry Baev and I’m from Odessa, Ukraine. I got started in photography in 2013.
My passion for Dutch painting and Impressionism always pushes me to use the principles of achieving chiaroscuro lighting that the artists used. Light tones, colors and shades allow to achieve smoother transition from light to shadow in a photo. As for me, photography is a kind of feeling not a technique. The essence is the emotional substance rather than color, composition or form. Technical means and elements may only enhance the emotional response.
I like creating fine-art photography via use of my own “painterly effect” technique. My photos come into their own when printed out on paper or canvas in size larger than 50 cm.
