Outdated hand tool and modern tools

Hello all,My name is Roman and it's my first article, something like experiment or first step. I want to tell you about one of outdated hand tool for work near the house. This is scythe.This tool most often used for cutting grass, as well as grain crops (rye, wheat, oats). The tool consists of long curved steel blade attached to long wooden base with one short handle (less often with two handles). Wooden base should be maximum light and strong as possible.Until... continue reading

Free Hand Drawing

 Free hand drawing is a method of sketching or drawing without using measuring tools or guides to assist in the artwork. For example a straight line in a "free-hand" drawing relies on the hand - eye coordination of the artist. Rather than a straight edge of a ruler or drafting tool.Freehand Drawing is not Mechanical or CADD drawing. It depends totally upon your Eye-Hand Coordination. In order to do Freehand, you will need total familiarization with all visual forms.You will need to learn... continue reading

Romanian traditions - part 2

At the end of the last month (on 27th October 2012) I was asked to drive someone at a fair, 50 km away from my town. He told me the traditional craftsmen from Slatina will be there. For me, it is always a joy to meet this people. But, usually, at this fairs nothing especially happens. Every participant is trying to sell the products of their work, but often this is a hard endeavor. Not many are interested in traditional things.As a young boy, I loved to eat in clay bowls and plates. Nowadays,... continue reading

Romanian traditions

One of my favorite photographic themes is Romanian traditions. And when I say this, I mean traditional clothing, traditional crafts, traditional houses and the way the romanian peasants lived their life.One of the most remarkable facts is the romanian peasant was always very inventive. Unfortunately, this was a need that came from the poverty. Unable to buy anything, in many cases bound to the land they worked, the romanian peasant was forced to find ways to improve the quality of life or at... continue reading

The best camera is the one at hand - testing the Lumix LX5

How many times to we see a great shot and wish we had our camera with us?I purposely bought a micro four thirds camera (Lumix DMC-G2) knowing that I'd most likely have it by my side more often then a full sized mirror DSLR.The G2 with a "pancake" lens like the Panasonic Lumix G 20mm F1.7 ASPH is very compact although its not exactly pocket able.And it looks enough like a professional camera that in certain situations people notice when you have it around your neck.So for pure stealth... continue reading

First hand-drawn illustrations

Hi all,Few months ago I bought an Intuos 4 M tablet. But as I haven't have much leisure time (everyday work + need to make jpg's from RAW's which queue was very, very long), it sat all the time in a drawer. Last week I finally decided to take it out thinking, if I already bought it, then I must use it too. So, I connected the device, took the pen, watching out of window and thinking "Now what?" First I took a photo I captured in the summer, a closeup of a grasshopper. To get a feeling of a pen,... continue reading
