Mihaela Banu, New Beginnings
I could present Mihaela Banu as an ex book editor, or as a software developer, or maybe the aspiring actress, even a “friend of a friend”. The truth is that she is all of the above and probably more. I say “more” because as you can see, Mihaela is all about reinventing herself. Not an easy task for most people. New beginnings are both exciting and difficult.
Mihaela first started working as a book editor, she then transitioned to software development and as of 2020 she is climbing the acting ladder.
We met by means of a common friend. Mihaela was in need of some portfolio photos and I was excited to add some new shots to my portfolio.
So we met up in IOR Park. Mihaela brought the model (herself) and I brought my Fuji X-T20 with the XF 50-140mm F2.8 and the Mitakon 85mm F1.2. We only needed 2 great photos: a head shot and a full body shot. I also brought a couple of other lenses, but I didn’t end up using them.
Long story short, the 50-140mm won the contest. Not to say that the Mitakon 85mm isn’t any good, it’s just how it turned out this time.
