Sharing the house with 2 of my best models

This will be an interesting and funny post, you will see why I am saying this. :)It is not an usual post, maybe it is not a real post at all, but from my love for them resulted this.Meet my favorite and my beloved models:The white cat is Mina, as you can see she is a blue eyes cat, 2 years and a half old, Rag-doll Blue Bi-color, with Pedigree.Her nose has a cute little black spot and because of that when she was a kitten, we called her Raspberry Muffin, also because of the fluffiness. Adorable... continue reading

I am a Cachupin

I spend lots of time biking, traveling and commuting, and I wanted to share the story behind all of my dog photographs:Two months ago I left the United States to experience the mythic reality around the Andes Range and the cultures that call it home. I landed in Ushuaia and promptly assembled my bike and left the airport filled with enthusiasm for the act of discovery. Within minutes of leaving the airport I made my first foreign discovery; a pack of dishevelled stray dogs chased, barked, and... continue reading

Bokeh - behind the lens

So wikipedia says: "In photography, bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens" ...that was a part of the article and I believe everyone can find and read it :)I won't write here about usual bokeh without the main object in focus. And I won't write about simple blurs that can make everyone at every time. No one wants to have portfolio with thousands of such images with a few sells, right?I want to write about three related... continue reading

One small step

Tuesday, the 19th seemed to be just like any other day, with some lecture, papers, and all the fun stuff that comes with university life. But that morning was also the first time I have ever had a sale on dreamstime! It was only for 58 cents, at an "extrasmall" resolution. Apparently, the buyer did not even search for any keywords, as the entry was marked as n/a. I have no idea who bought it, or what they intend to do with this image, but I'm sure it will be put to good use! I actually like... continue reading

Soap bubble bokehs

In the recent times an old time lens from Meyer-Optik stable started gaining popularity among the new generation photographers. It was not for its sharpness or corner to corner resolving power. No nothing related to how modern days lens is assessed. But the popularity was for its ability to produce those soap bubble shaped bokehs. This is merely due to the lens formula used for its construction.      The lens is the Meyer-Optik Trioplan 100 mm F2.8. There are deals on ebay but as the popularity... continue reading

Manual LENS: BOKEH & LENS FLARE

A few years ago I wrote a little about my new toy - manual lens Jupiter-9. Here I have the new one Helios 40-2. I use it with Nikon but it can fit to other systems too. So I'd like to share my new experience with it.Helios 40-2 is mostly known for it's unique bokeh. The price for this lens has grown quite high as for manual lens in the past few years. For some it's a kind of trendy lens to have. Though I decided to discover it's capability with my full frame camera.Firstly... continue reading

Bokeh Photography

 All the way is the hardest to find that light. No matter how wide is your aparture, and how depth is your image, without the light is nothing. I'm still making images with nice depth of field but the best images are backlighted. I suggest to you that look for the background and quite the subject itself. If you can imagine the background with lights up, you're gonna get an amazing image. Hope you can share some of your images with me!Flickr - icemanphotos500px - icemanphotos... continue reading

50mm - a magic lens!

They say Kit lens is the beginner's lens. True it is. But I started my DSLR photography with a 50mm prime and since then I am madly in love with my magic lens! In fact I still do not own any kit lens! :DYou can do thousands of experiments with this much lighter weapon!The focal length is almost close to the perception of human eye. It covers the whole zone as your eye can see at once. Makes the picture more real. I never forget this tiny wonder when I go for street photography. Just apt for... continue reading
