    Fashion photo shoot, clothes by a young designer from Tallinn - Maria Suvorova. Here we used mixed lights: a portrait plate in the front and two contemporary sources, illuminating the colorful polyethylene and tissues in the back.

    As practice shows, there is no final version of a stock photo. Some of the images in my portfolio can be found in 3, 5 or even more variations on Shutterstock. To begin with, I personally think that images isolated on white (or any other solid color) are not considered to be as a final product. It all depends on the photo, but if it is about the „classic“ stock, then this is the way it is. Therefore, my hands are getting itchy after some time.

    The sea

    I don't understand how is it possible to live away from the sea. As for me, it's like living in a house without wondows. Unfortunately it is possible to take pictures on the Baltic sea shores only a few weeks in a year. I am left to draw the sea in Photoshop at the rest of the time.

    Outlines

    Backlight is a very powerful tool in the art of photography. It often happens that just a simple flash settled from the right angle can show much more than a whole pack of monoblocks.

    Holmes and Watson

    This photo session was taken right after the Guy Ritchie movie "Sherlock Holmes", however the idea was born much earlier. By the way, the Sherlock's role was played by Romberg - a well known photographer from Tallinn.

    Special thanks to the St Olav hotel for the interior were we made the shots.

    As far as I remebmer the photo shoot came out quite funny. I was almost done shooting when I realized that I have shot everything in .jpg and for some reason in the lowest quality. I had to make it all over again.
