Fine art photography by lens based artist, Serena Dzenis.

Below, you’ll find the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions that are sent my way.

If you have a question that hasn’t been answered in this FAQ, then you’re welcome to get in touch with me.

I currently work with a Canon 5DS R. My most used lenses are the Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro VC USD, Canon 16-35mm f/4L IS USM and the Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art. I also use a range of Singh-Ray filters to create interesting effects and to balance exposure.

For a complete list of my camera equipment, check out what’s in my bag.

My go-to lens is the Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro VC USD. I also use a tripod in addition to my Novoflex Castel-XQ II Focusing Rack with the Cast-Fine Adjustment Handle attached.

To keep the lighting uniform, I use a Lume Cube Air mounted on a JOBY Gorillapod.

To minimise movement, I use a Hähnel Giga T Pro II to release the shutter.

I use Adobe Bridge to organise my images and to add metadata before making basic adjustments in Adobe Camera RAW. I then export the RAW files to Adobe Photoshop for more advanced editing and finishing.

You can find a selection of free articles that I’ve written on landscape, architecture and fungi photography on this website. 

I also offer a range of photography workshops which are tailored to help you learn new skills or to improve upon certain aspects of your photography.

Yes, I offer private photography workshops and tours for individuals or small groups.

There are also times when I partner with other tour operators or photographers for workshops. The best way to find out about them is through my newsletter.

Yes. Every year, I offer free mentorship to four young photographers aged between 12 and 17.

I also offer a paid mentoring option for people who may be older but still young at heart :)

I am available to speak at conferences, on Zoom, to deliver lectures, present workshops and more. Send me a message to find out how we can work together!

Most of the photos within my collections are available as open or limited edition fine art prints.

A small selection of images from the 2021 ± II: Utopia Broadcasting collection are available exclusively through BBA Gallery via Artsy.

I have partnered with The Artling to sell a selection of my landscape photography internationally and will gradually expand this selection over time.

See here for more information about my prints.

If you would like a print of an image that you saw on one of my social media channels, send me an email with a screenshot of which photograph you would like printed and I will let you know if it is available for purchase.

A limited edition print is one that is signed, numbered and produced in a small print run. As soon as they run out, the prints will no longer be available. As such, they are usually more valuable.

You can find out more about the latest news on my blog.

I also send out the occasional newsletter. It’s the best way to find out about new images, what’s been happening, upcoming photo tours and workshops, articles, photography tips and more.
