  • 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.

  • 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.

    Tamron 70-200 2.8 & Maria Sauh

    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.

    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.

    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.

  • How I found myself feeling quite rich
    How I found myself feeling quite rich

    I had the idea of moving my photography-related activities to a designated space for a long time, really. I think that’s understandable. I’m sure most of you would agree that having to shoot late at night, spend an hour on setting up your workspace and then half of this time on putting everything away sounds exciting only at first. Afterwards you would much rather spend this time on something more pleasant like having a cup of coffee or smoking a cigarette.

  • 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".
