“Claudius Cazan is a violinist, pianist, organist, composer, arranger, producer, photographer, sound engineer and a certified computer engineer. Claudius studied violin performance and graduated with a BM in Music Performance from Juilliard and obtained a Master of Music Degree from the Mannes College of Music in New York, also in Music Performance. As a photographer, he has played with a camera for as long as he remembers. As a child, he remembers helping process 35mm film and enlarge b&w photographs in his father’s home studio in his native Brasov, Romania. Later, at the age of 15 he purchased his very own fully-automatic Russian 35mm camera and started taking photographs while hiking the local mountain trails in his home town. When he came to the U.S. in 1983,he purchased his first Canon A1 35mm SLR and started to photograph landscape and nature while on tours as a musician. In 2003 he made the leap into digital photography when he purchased a Canon Digital Rebel DSLR with 6.1 MP. Some of the photos featured on this site were taken with that very camera. In 2007 he purchased a Canon 40D which he uses to this very day. His favorite lens is his Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM because of its size and optical qualities.
“I don’t remember a time when photography was not a big part of my life. I photograph a variety of subjects; my beautiful cats, my family, my back yard, my place of work and anything in between. I like the freedom to photopraph when I feel inspired. I spend quite a bit of time in front of my PC with Photoshop and my favorite plug-ins. I prefer to shoot outdoors, late in the day when the light is warm and the shadows long, or on cloudy days when the light is defused and uniform. Most of the time I use a flash unit even outdoors on a sunny day to cast light in those places that would normally end up in the shadow. I embrace new technologies like HDR, focus-stacking, etc., as they inspire me to create interesting photographs.”
