Bridge fetish or a lesson in composition? You decide!

I've got a confession to make: I've got a bridge fetish.

Don't you find the entire structure fascinating, especially the attempt of the architects and builders to model this after the double helix structure... continue reading

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Review

If you follow my blogs and forum posts, you know I've long been a fan of the Micro Four Thirds system.I'm a firm believer that for most photos or end uses we have reached a point where full frame cameras are an unnecessary expense (each to their own, of course!).I've been putting my Canon dSLR and micro four thirds bodies to the test over the last few months and they come out very close.There were a few things keeping me from fully committing, however.The Olympus E-M5, released in the last... continue reading

Cup of tea and Henri-Cartier Bresson

Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again.Any photographer’s supreme ambition is to capturing the precise millisecond that tells the whole story.A picture is the freezing of time.There are no fancy mechanisms available to the photographer to fill in the viewer with the crucial backstory.There is no way to rewind the narrative in a photograph.That single frame is it; the... continue reading

Best Selling Easter Bunny 2012 - Game

All of us went through a stage when we daily check the statistics and with frustration or with joy we observe how our images are bought by people around the planet. Sometimes it is a kind of stereotype, that puts you down as nothing special happens, so couple of days ago I had an idea - why not to make it a bit more exciting? - to give it a faster spin and have fun at same time?So I came up with an idea of a competition (in sales increase), that will bring some thrill and maybe sell some images... continue reading
