About this photoblog

Welcome to my photoblog !

Background info

My name is Christophe Meneboeuf. I'm a year old telecommunication engineer living in Paris, France.
I came to photography after having produced a few amateur 3D animated shorts. You can watch my very first 3D animation, Space Battle, at www.space-battle.com (10min length).

As I enjoy travelling the World and discovering foreign cultures, many pictures exposed here are from other countries. I recently visited Peru, Bolivia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and took the Transsiberian to cross Russia, Mongolia and China. I don't know where my next trip will be, but the farther from home, the better !

I'm also the creator of EZWebGallery, an opensource Web Gallery Generator emphasizing image quality and ease of use. Check this demo to be convinced and feel free to try it!

My equipment

I own a Nikon D300, which is a wonderful body ! Before that I shot with a D70. A little bit old by today standards but still quite capable.

My lenses:

  • Nikkor AF-S VR 16-85mm. The one I use the most ! It replaces the 18-70mm I used on my D70.
  • Nikkor AF 50mm 1.8D. I really love it, and it's relatively cheap ! I use it mainly for portraits or pictures at concerts.
  • Nikkor AF 24mm 2.8. Great for street photography and concerts !
  • Nikkor AF-S VR 55-200mm.
  • Sigma 12-24mm.
The softwares I use:
  • Nikon Capture NX 2. Despite its numerous bugs, I really enjoy using it !
  • Adobe Photoshop CS5, Panorama Factory and IMatch.
