Ok, second part of message in picture. Why? Because it is opposite of first so I didn't want to put it together. In first blog I wanted to present my way of negative looking at stress, work and similar. But this time I tried to use light pose and everything else in positive way. Now I took bright shot of doctor in his suite with green ivy around him. Why? Because ivy is used for medical purposes. So now my idea was to create one photo with everything positive on it. Like a doctor (man who want to... continue reading

Hi,this blog is for those who want to say something with their pictures. Of course and for everyone else:) I was thinking first what to shoot, what picture can say more then just "look at me" and then,forget me. I wanted picture with message, symbolic picture, and I got it. My idea was to show you in one picture man or woman in here world fighting from stress, pollution and other bad things. So I tried. At beginning it was hard I didn't know how, but then I realized, I can put those things together... continue reading
Picturing glass was one of my first works in studio, actually it's not so hard if you have glass only on tabletop but if you have something from steel or some other material it can be difficult.

Than put white paper as a background but spread it also... continue reading

So I did it and for my taste it was beautiful.But also soft focus is very important for giving accent to some of object you want to be recognized first. Baby lens is one of many lenses with De-centering focus and it's perfect for that. Also I'm lover of b&w photography... continue reading
Simple but strongIf you think it is difficult to earn some money try not to think so hard. Ok, you must think of course but usually all the good ideas are also the easiest ones. You can just try to think what people may need and how they are going to use your work. I realized many people use bar codes for posters, books or some other design works so I decided to create many bar codes for different purposes. For love, for print (like CMYK or RGB) or something else.Just create it in high resolution... continue reading

It's all about new idea.To earn some money on stock sites you must create unique shot.It's a shot that nobody created before you.Ok how to do that,it's not easy.You must turn your brain ON :)) heheok serious think there are two ways to do that : first just sit and think what can you do..... if you have good imagination it will be useful,but second if you wanna take shortcut and inspire your brain you can always insert word in search and see what image is missing....I did that and had great idea.... continue reading
