The Portrait of the Animal

Here I want to share some simple pictures of animals on black background. I do like it, because its focus is on a part of figure isolated from natural background. Though the animal is isolated from its natural surroundings whether it be a park, a zoo or a forest, these pictures somehow look “alive”. When I first saw that bison looking sideways and passing away from my vision field, I felt a bit disappointed that no worth pictures have made. However, being at home and checking the photos, his sad... continue reading

Malachite Jewel

Our Obsession with Noise

When I started in photography back in the mid 1990s we were all shooting film and film that was manufactured for higher light sensitivity caused the silver halide to clump together causing a phenomenon we termed "grainy." Some photographers actually liked the look produced by this high speed film and a whole art subculture was born around it.Even today, in what can be called the digital age, these same individuals still practice their craft with high speed film.Even though the "we love grain"... continue reading
