    Material evolution

    As I've already many times said, I don't think about digital images as a final product. Any digital photo which is in my computer is considered to be as a raw material, no matter how complex was it's post manipulation. Therefore I seldom return to the final material and either finish it or remake it.

    This particular image wasn't an exception. If someone is interested, the work was done in several steps.

    Every artist is dreaming to find his own muse. You can spend your whole life searching for and still remain without her. I got lucky.

    Crop tool is a really handy instrument. Sometimes it's just enough to take a photo and cut a part of it and that's it: a normal level selling photo is now almost a bestseller.

    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.

    And again Lena

    The photo is pretty old: it is taken, if I'm not mistaken, even before the new year. But the final outcome came just recently. You can see a part of the Toomkirik on the background.

    A few months ago my fellow in the studio bought a very useful item: a plate with honeycombs and curtains. Now I just don’t get how we’ve lived without it.

    Miss Garage archives

    Only a few (besides those who were involved in the process) knew that at the beginning or in the end of each photo session of the Miss Garage project I've also made some shots with Aljona. Lena Rudi, who was once the cameraman of one of the episodes thought that Aljona was one of the contestants. This particular image was made during the work on the third episode of the reality show, which was about military.

    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.
