About Elnar

With over 8 years in photography and 5 years in video production world I gained quite an experience in all different kinds of subjects, but a bit more than 3 years ago decided to focus on cinematography, which led me to Los Angeles. I studied cinematography in New York Film Academy - Los Angeles, where I learnt most of the popular camera formats (Red, Alexa, DSLR, BlackMagic, 35mm and 16mm film), improved my lighting and camera movement skills and, in my opinion, the most important, I learnt how to prepare for the shoot and how to work on set. So far I shot over 100 short films and music videos (couple of which are already airing on TV). Before that I did over 100 little documentaries about personal lives of different families, people in these families.

I have been doing post production for longer time than I even have photography. 9 years of editing and color correction experience and by today I am absolutely confident with almost any post production workflow such as Final Cut 7 and X, Adobe Premiere and After Effects, Photoshop, DaVinci Resolve color correction, and at the moment Im learning Avid.

I also still do photography, but not fashion or wedding. I do story photography and all my present photographs have little stories in them.

I am also music lover, I used to play and sing in a rock band when I was in high school and I still play guitar:)
