About me

Alena Hroncová

Photography is my passion since childhood. I started taking pictures using now historic piece of rangefinder camera Yashica Mat 6x6. Later I switched to a newer SLR camera Yashica FX-D (the film format) until the onset of the digital era. I developed films and photos by myself in the darkroom. I took part in several major exhibitions and competitions, where I was also awarded.

Photography was my greatest hobby even when my kids were born and it was necessary to take photos in improvised conditions again – bathroom, during the nap of my kids.

The onset of digital era was a test of my devotion to photography.
I came back to intensive photography only after I was able to accept the new aspects of digital photography. Photography makes my life much more interesting and more creative.

Photography is my hobby and my passion. I love taking pictures especially of people in all sorts of occasions, such as weddings, social and corporate events, people in traditional costumes, kids, partner photo, but also the nature, macro and so on. I enjoy experimenting with light and technique of photography, to search for funnier and more creative form of photography.
