About

Photography is my passion.

Hello, and thanks for visiting my shop. I'm Birgitta, and it's great to have you here!

The world is my classroom, but I also love to share stories. I believe each of us has a unique story to tell, and we're the only ones who can tell our own stories. I don't call myself a photographer, but an artist with a camera. The world is my canvas and the camera- my brush. I want to share my visions with you, and allow you to interpret them for yourself.

My creative process is quite unique, in that I use a digital camera to capture my images, but prefer to use old, vintage film lenses imported from Lithuania, Russia, and Germany. I'm able to attach the film lenses onto my digital camera via a special adapter, so it really is the perfect marriage of the old world meeting the new. As a result, the final image is crisp in detail, while still thick in texture and quality with hints of grain that only film lenses can add. This technique gives my work a one-of-a kind look that is easily distinguishable from my peers.

Also, each image has been mastered in post processing so that every colour, hue, and tone has been manually adjusted for the highest quality available. It's a pain-staking process which involves much time (nothing is easily altered with a simple mouse click) but it's a labor of love, as it's my passion; sharing beautiful art work with you that you can be proud of.

Thanks so much for taking the time! Please contact me for special requests and personal commissions. Thank you!
