It is often said that the eyes are the windows into the souls. If you need proof of that, just look at two star crossed lovers as they gaze for hours into each others eyes, or to the mother of a small toddler who can tell if he was in the cookie jar just by the look in his eyes, or to the old expression “giving someone the evil eye”.Eyes can truly convey a lot about a person character, and great artists throughout the ages have been known to convey depth and meaning to their work by how they treat... continue reading

Being an expat, has positives and negatives sides. One of the positives sides is that when you go back to your home town (in my case, Rome), you see it with different eyes. You are not a tourist, but at the same time you are not the person you were, when you lived there. You also see how it changes. This always gives me mixed feelings. One of these feelings is, I want to "rediscover" it. So, these few days I can spend in my beautiful home town, usually I take the scooter and together with my father,... continue reading
I have begun to see my life through "new eyes" after these past few months of taking, submitting and studying stock images. I think this new vision is something very beneficial for anyone to acquire. It is a new appreciation for everyday things! Yes! I now am entering a world of nuances and seeing it makes the so called "mundane world" intriguing, exciting and beautiful!I am realizing I am surrounded by beauty! I was just at the laundry mat because I am traveling (as usual) and the old scratched... continue reading

Open you image in Adobe Photoshop.1. Create new Curves Adjustment Layer.2. Select Curves Layer.3. Double click on 'Sample in image to set black point' (Set Sample Size 31x31).4. Click on the Health Skin near eye bag area to... continue reading
One of the items I learned about shooting images of creatures is to make sure the eyes are sharp.These eyes will draw you in and provide a visually striking image. While the rest of the image can be out of focus, it's important to make sure the eyes are in focus.This image of a mabel orchard spider looking up through its web waiting for prey, gives me the creeps. Luckily, the spider is only about 5mm(0.25 inch) in length.While i was taking the image it was interesting to watch the... continue reading
How do you keep your creativity flowing? How do you train your eyes to see photographically? I have creative projects that help me with that. I have a few projects going, most of them are long term projects.One project is the "Project Green" where I try to find images where green is the dominant color or the subject. What I found helpful in this project is that I look at the things around me, trying to notice things that are green. There are so many things that are green. While plant images seem... continue reading
