Igor Dutina joined our community in 2007 and his favorite subject is food photography which he occasionally spices with people portraits and landscapes for more flavors and colors.

Food shots always is a favorite subject and a promising stock pictures.Through out the year shooting them, we eventually can cook many dishes ourself. This make things so much easier.
