  • 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.

  • The sea
    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.

    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.

    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.

    Sometimes I’m even happy that I need to write posts for my own blog, because this gives me a chance to find some of the most interesting, but long forgotten photos.

    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.

  • Experiments

    Picking up the lights for this photo session took a lot of time. Eventually settled on a single softbox, hanging from the ceiling. This is not the first time when I realize that just a randomly settled light source can be more effective than a bunch of them installed "with thinking".

    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.
