Uncovering Artists through Windows Themes – David Burlacu

David Burlacu is a 25 year old photographer. Before March 2012 you could easily bump into him at every indie or rock concert in Bucharest. Easy to spot, tall, blocking the fans' view, always focused on the movement on the stage, always laughing and enjoying the pictures he had to take. Whenever a local band would hear the name David, none of them asked "David who?". Because back here if you're under 26 and you enjoy the nightlife, you have definitely met David at least once.

But now he moved to New York and haunts the underground scene in the US. As usual, he goes to many concerts and snapshots everything worthwhile. Here is what he had to tell us about the most important thing in his life – photography.

Introducing David Burlacu

Let's get to know more about David through this brief interview:

What university did you attend?
I have a Bachelors degree in Accounting and Masters in Communication & Advertising.

When did you start becoming friends with photography?
When she first winked at me. Some band was playing on stage and for some unclear reason I had a DSLR with me. This got me started...

What camera do you use and what software do you use for post processing?
Pentax K-7, Noise Ninja & Adobe Photoshop CS5. Adobe Photoshop CS6 is too weird for me. Plus, my laptop hates me enough as it is and prefers running the older version.

What do you recommend for beginners who want to learn photography?
Keep away from film. It's a sure road to bankruptcy. Get prime lenses, don't use the pop-up flash, get some training videos for Adobe Photoshop and try not to fall asleep while watching.

What is your favorite type of photography - portrait, landscape, still life, what makes you zoom focus and capture?
Concert photography is my guilty pleasure. There's a certain amount of freedom not being able to control the lights. You have to work with what you got. Also, you never know what the end result is going to be.

What keeps you running 24/7?
Photography, music, Red Bull and lots granola bars.

What other artists do you follow?
Matthew Eisman is pretty cool...and Todd Owyoung for technique.

What's your plan with photography from here on?
Get a band to sign me as their official photographer and go with them on tour around the world.
