Photo manipulation or photo and manipulation?

One of my favorite photo edition is manipulation, photo manipulation. We can achieve so much, by manipulating photo these days. Only over a century ago, that wasn't really possible, definitely not on the computer in the home environment. Where now, everyone has endless possibilities. Many of us overuse it, however, I believe is good to practice, perhaps not everything always should be shown to everyone. Not every form of photo manipulation is good or I shall say good enough. Golden center is the key, even that word manipulation never brings positive thoughts. I'm sure everyone met in life manipulative individual, wherever that would be: at work or in the family. Manipulation it sounds so negative … Continue reading Photo manipulation or photo and manipulation?

Inspiration – where does it come from?

It's a really good question. What's also makes the inspiration interesting is how long will it last? Today I went through my old photographs. My very beginning of photography taking. It fills me with so much inspiration, not only that of course. But I believe it was that needed drop! Some ideas start growing… but … Continue reading Inspiration – where does it come from?

Can still life photography be taken out in wild nature?

Certainly, it can. That's the bottom line to the question. However, there is more to it! When I first started taking photography everything seems to me so unruly. I didn't understand why some pictures are better than others even where taken at the same spot. Of course longer you into it - better you are. … Continue reading Can still life photography be taken out in wild nature?

The Curve – The Red Roller Coaster

Once, quite a few years ago I went to one of these roller coaster parks. Today's image reminds me of one wonderful ride. Extreme! Something interesting going around in the background, colors, and shapes are crazy, as on the roller coaster. But also the theme of colors, red and black it tells the viewer that … Continue reading The Curve – The Red Roller Coaster

Still Life by Night

As the weather doesn't help (lack of sun) I decided to take a few pictures last night, with the only candlelight. Here is the result. Since I had started photography, and start understanding it's all about light, night photography was prior to exercise. It was much easier to grab a camera at night then at … Continue reading Still Life by Night

Poster with Minimalism / Abstract Photography

Here I'm back with promised posters. I enjoyed creating them but as usual only within spear time. Of course, I didn't want to design just one. I created three (plus other versions of these three). Let's talk about the very first one... The no. one was actually no. three looking from the creating point. The … Continue reading Poster with Minimalism / Abstract Photography

Abstract & Minimalism – photography

Sometimes I wonder what I like more abstract or minimalism... and then if we talk about photography, for me they will be equal. More - less both I'm using quite often, and very often both appear in my photography at the same time. Once I had the shot today, my first idea it was - … Continue reading Abstract & Minimalism – photography
