Such uneasy simple things

As it is known, at photographic shooting of any object it is important to open its sense, the internal maintenance. Interior subjects in this respect are not an exception: important not simply to show object in a shot, but also to show to the spectator all its major properties.It also has been made by me in the course of subject shooting - a green sphere with cavities inside. That the sphere has begun to sparkle in beams of studio flash, slanting light falling at the left has been chosen. Well... continue reading


Autumn. A time of the year I'm not particularily fond of, except when the Sun is shining, revealing the wonderful colors of the trees preparing for the Winter ahead.Unfortunately, the Sun decided not to be around in the last days, and all we got was rain, fog, and uniform grey skies. The weather forecast for the weekend is much better though, and maybe I'll be able to take some stock-worthy shots from les Diablerets, in the Swiss Alps.And if the Sun changes its plans for the weekend, I can... continue reading

Why modelling is not easy!

You may think it's easy to model, I know I did until I had my first studio shoot. Before the shoot I really believed modelling was about standing there and looking pretty, maybe giving a few poses, what could be so difficult about that?It's not easy!! These models must go to bed early before a shoot, wake up early, and start to prepare their skin, hair, face etc for the upcoming shoot. Once they arrive, straight into hair and make-up, where they might have to sit for over an hour getting their... continue reading

First attempt with light tent...

Hi there,Well I've had a couple of images accepted from my first attempt with a light tent so I am quite pleased.I mostly take shots of landscapes and nature but I thought I would give something new a try.I bought a very cheap light tent and lights so I wasn't sure that my set up would be good enough but the end results weren't too bad.I found it quite difficult to get the correct white balance and I think this would be improved if I invest in some proper light bulbs...the ones I was using... continue reading
