    Recently I was checking the 2012 summer material. I’ve discovered a couple of photos where the flash didn’t worked correctly. At first I’ve thought that it was a complete failure, but still tried to repair. The result came out as good as with the flash.

    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.

    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.
