Welcome to photography insights, the show that interviews people from the photography world. I’m your host Andrew Walmsley and today we have an excellent street photographer for you.
Ovidiu Selaru’s work for those that don’t already know is simply stunning. He has captured in mono and colour for different reasons. Using architecture, perspectives and shadows so well. It’s no surprise he has been shortlisted for this years British photo awards. You will see he has offered workshops in the past and still sells prints of his work too.
Ovidiu talks to us about his preparation and approach. We cover some of his gear and minimalist approach.
So in this one we discuss:
- importance of rest
- searching for light
- iso 10,000
- playing with colours

Anyone following my feed will notice I wrote an article about the importance of friendships. The whole idea of this was about supporting the work of others, doing something for someone else. I’m a big believer in random acts of kindness, it makes you feel good. If you want to check it out go here – link
So after discussing this last week I have finally implemented a way for anyone to donate. This will help with ongoing improvements and hosting costs for the website. I don’t allow adverts on my website unlike most other people – i believe it detracts and distracts from the content. I want to stay as ethical as I can and the only option is donations.
Every single pound/dollar is really appreciated and you will be mentioned (if you are happy with that).
You can do this through the link on my site or here – link
