Photographer Catrin Grabowski (@kathinkas_world) calls herself a foggy mood addict. “My photography journey started several years ago when I bought my first mirrorless camera and became infected with the well-known photographer’s virus,” she explains. “Some years later when the Sony Alpha 7 crossed my path it was love at first sight – the full-frame sensor was like discovering a whole new world through the lens.
