Neyvan Pecanhuk Contact
- I'm NEYVAN PEÇANHUK, or just NEY, BRAZILIAN, 49 y.o. and I've been living in the city of CAMPINAS since 1986 (for more than 29 - twenty nine - years already), in the State of SÃO PAULO/SP, in the Southeastern Region of BRAZIL (SOUTH AMERICA), to where I moved to study at UNICAMP (University of CAMPINAS). I was born in SALTO GRANDE/SP, I'm a food engineer, but I've been working for the brazilian government for more than 19 (nineteen) years now (in a department that deals with labor laws).
I love traveling and taking pictures since I was a child (I used my father's old camera until he gave me a KODAK INSTAMATIC, moving later on to a PENTAX, a trademark I was faithful to even when I lived in the USA back in the years of 1982/83 - Colorado Springs - Colorado - as an AFS - AMERICAN FIELD SERVICE - exchange student)! A couple of years ago, I used to think I'd never buy a digital camera, but I bought my first one in 2004 (a SONY CYBER-SHOT DSC-P92 - I'll post some old shots in here). WELL, NOW I CAN SAY I ENTERED THE DIGITAL PHOTO WORLD MORE THAN 10 YEARS AGO! From then on, I slowly left aside my old analogical one (the last model: a NIKON N50) and in 2007 I bought my NIKON D80, here in BRAZIL, a real start line for future improvements! Unfortunately, it was stolen while I returned my rented car (Dollar Rent a Car) in Miami International Airport (MIA), on January 1st 2012, at the end of my trip to Florida/USA, having lost some of the pictures taken there! Fortunately, I was able to buy a NIKON D7000, again, here in Brazil, which I've been using since January, 2012!
When I found out this site I thought it'd be perfect to share those two passions of mine with PEOPLE from all over the WORLD and, you bet, I was totally right! Although sometimes I think I'm sort of addicted to it and I've faced some problems with it, I really LIKE all the INTERACTION that's possible in here and, for this reason, I've been around for more than 07 (SEVEN) years already (since AUGUST 1ST 2007)!
I call myself a real "PHOTOMANIAC", but, please, I'M NOT A PROFESSIONAL in this field!
My pictures will be mostly related to TRAVELING: CITYSCAPES - I love architecture photographs - and LANDSCAPES - I love nature images! They will all try to present the place where I was traveling or where I live at their best, AS WELL AS MY PHOTO TALENT GOES, regarding colors, sharpness, exposure, chosen pov, dof, composition, pp, contrasts, format, all of them trying to enhance their inherent beauty and to show them to the world as thoroughly as possible, because that's how I understand this site: A VIRTUAL PLACE WHERE PEOPLE VISIT OTHER PLACES AROUND THE GLOBE THROUGH OTHER PEOPLE'S TRAVELING AND PICTURES, through other people's EYES and EMOTIONS, that means, LEARNING ABOUT THE WORLD THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY! I also try to stick to the "happy side" of traveling and photography, that means, I do it to get relaxed and to feel good, so I try to avoid the bad parts of life!

1) AERIAL VIEWS!

Be welcome and feel free to make any sort of comments, whatever they are, either COMPLIMENTS or POSITIVE CRITICIZING, including HINTS & TIPS on how to improve techniques in this fabulous art (little by little I've been learning more & more and TRY to use that in my pictures... not always POSSIBLE... not always PART OF MY TALENT...)! Well, GREEN FACES MIGHT BE important, and SOMETIMES they may mean how good the photographer is, but most of all, I want to show everyone the places I visited or where I live THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY!
