Poi is a fun photographic experience. There are many variations, but my personal favorite is spinning steel wool. Spinning steel wool is edgy, dangerous and a lot of fun.The equipment needed is as follows:a good hat or hoodiea coat that is fire resistanta kitchen whiska dog leashfine grade 000 steel woola lightera fire extinguisheruv filtertripod or other mount to secure your cameraa camera that can do long exposureswide angle lensI usually set to the lowest ISO,... continue reading

I just had my first taste of isolated photography, and I wanted to share just how easy it can be to try it out, even well before you attempt to produce any high quality shots.I used very few simple tools I literally had in my backpack.1. An old canon powershot 120, a small but capable camera.2. My notebook as a white background.3. Cell phones flash for extra light.4. Random bits and pieces, in my case a bullet, dice and poker chip.I was sitting on a tree(literally) when I wondered about... continue reading
It's amazing how people always complain about the weather: too hot, too cold, too much rain, too much humid, too much snow... Where I come from, people complain even more when it's winter time. I find that weird, since winter is so beautiful. Snow covered evergreen trees are just amazing. Snowflakes reflecting light at night are like precious gems. The snow also absorbs city noise, which makes this season so relaxing.The big reason why I love winter is for outdoor activities. No insects to drive... continue reading
In the beginning of september, right at the end of hot summer when sun was shining, I had occasion to take photos of playing kids.

A month ago I installed new plug-ins to my PS CS4. Namely, StarSpikes Pro 2 Filter(from ProDigital Software), Knoll Light Factory(from Red Giant Software), and set of filtersfrom Flaming Pear (of which filters Flexity, Flood, Melancholytron, Glitterato and some others are my favorite ones).I like them much since they allow me to create excellent effects. And so, I have been playing with these plug-ins for several weeks and finally new collection in my portfolio appeared - Things Made out... continue reading
The lack of snow this winter is making me a bit stir crazy.Cabin fever is setting in but at least the days are getting longer.Meanwhile I find myself playing word games lately.Winter in New England usually means all sorts of activities that keep one in shape from skiing, to skating and even shoveling snow.This year's mild winter seems to bring nothing but light snow, rain and above freezing temperatures.Good thing I ran out back in October when we had a very early snow fall and... continue reading
