    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.

    Ordinary practice: wanted to test some of the Photoshop instruments, which I practically didn't use so far. As a result I've spent a couple of hours.

  • Losing a job opened up a new perspective, but I had to work really hard
    Losing a job opened up a new perspective, but I had to work really hard

    So, in the spring of 2009 I found myself feeling rich. I had a studio, lots of models and a considerable income on my hands. All in all, it gave me a really magical feeling, like anything was possible for me.

    But all things come to an end.

    At first, we didn’t get our salary for a couple of weeks at the newspaper, and then, one morning our director gathered the creative team and announced that our services will no longer be needed because the newspaper doesn’t exist anymore.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    A few months ago I had an opportunity to test for a couple of days a good typical lens. I am talking about Tamron 70-200 2.8. As a coincidence, during these days our city was visited by Maria Sauh: a talented photographer and a beautiful lady at the same time.

    Sometimes for my own risk I take photo sessions without precasting. This is like a lottery, and the best part is that I definitely didn't loose this time.
