Some years ago I followed a course from a famous Dutch photographer. Well, he won some cool prices, but I didn't know anything about Dies Groot.Until I followed the course that is. And I must say it was great to see so many like-minded people crammed together in one room, talking about photos in general and judging eachother works. I was scared about my showing my work, since - well - I love making photos, but I never considered craeting a job out of it. Luckily for me, they did like my... continue reading

I was going for a walk along an abandoned (I hope) railroad with my cousin and I was telling her that focus can make anything look good. To prove it, I took a quick snap of the first fallen leaf I saw on the railroad at f/5.6 to blur the tracks surrounding it. That night when I was going through my memory card, I realized how cool that picture was. It easily became one of my favourite pictures and it was only taken to prove a point :) continue reading
This shoot is made with Nikon D80, because my Sony was broken. D80 is quite an obsolete camera, so it's not easy to make sharp images in motion. Unfortunately about 95% of all pictures can not be used in commerce.Olga's boyfriend came to the shooting almost by accident. However, what often happens is that these accidents allow you to create the best pictures. continue reading
We are all now aware of the tragic accident last Friday to the Costa Concordia, a cruise ship with about 4000 passengers on board ,off the coast in Italy.There must be a demand for images of that ship prior to the accident.I knew I had images of cruise ships anchored off the Greek Island of Santorinibut upon searching my portfolio I could only come up with Costa Fortuna presumably a sister ship of Costa Concordia.Interestingly this picture shows just how much superstructure there is above... continue reading
I was in a really bad accident last week, literally run over by a 19 foot U Haul. I don't blog about this for sympathy but here it is summer, great weather and I am stuck in the house healing, and obsessing about all the great photo ops I missed during my accident and 7 hours in the ER.Firemen, cops, ambulances, stretchers, CTs, x-rays, IVs--all the medical paraphernalia I don't have access to photograph on a regular basis! Seriously not fair. I would have days of post processing and uploading... continue reading
I have habit (last couple months) to upload 10 files...and DT team has got habit to refuse one of them:)OK, nobody and nothing is perfect (I mean own pictures). Some are rejected for Poor execution, some - for Too many on site but today I've got this reason:- File approved by accident. We apologize for the inconvenience but the image needs to be removed.I wonder what was wrong with my file, is it state secret to not say to me? Folks, did anybody ever receive such reason? continue reading
It was an extremely rainy day in Chicago May 31, 2010...... then there was light !!!! Lighting, to be exact, there was so much lighting here in downtown during the day that I just had to capture it on my Canon DSLR. I had my tripod in place, I aimed the camera toward the tallest building in USA, which happens to be the old Sears Tower in Chicago in hopes of that perfect shot. And for 45 minutes straight, I shot 1437 exposures of 2 seconds for each shot of the same building, with the continuous cable... continue reading
Sometimes, a photo was taken by accident can be a stock photo..Actually, I want to take a self portrait photo, but accidentally the camera was focus on my necktie and cannot see my face on the photo. I almost want to delete it but don't know why I still keep this photo. When I transfered photos to my computer, I noticed again this photo. Hey! let's do some photoshoping and upload it and surprisingly it was accepted. Luckily, I did not delete this photo.Please don't delete a photo too fast. You... continue reading
