My great desire to make photo and great adventures

Last year my friends and I gathered to go on a trip to beautiful places, namely the Ukrainian Carpathians. Our main goals were to get distracted from everyday worries, to forget about work, home troubles, to relax from children, to plunge into the world of nature and for a while to feel an integral part of it. The Carpathian Mountains are a highlight of Ukraine. They are famous for the cleanest air, hospitable inhabitants, rich flora and fauna, great forest clean mountain... continue reading

Product review

I recently picked up a light tent for small product photography andwanted to share my initial tests.The one I purchased was theDynaphos DPL-005L 24x24 LightCube.It packs really small and comes with 4 different backdrops (Black, White, Red and Blue).Please note that you cannot use these backdrops once you unpack it.The backdrops have so many creases in them which makes them impossible to use as-is.I had to use my steamer to iron out the very stubborn folds.This isthe only... continue reading

Like many of us, sometimes we dont have that much cash to burn to make good photos.I was trying to take pictures of strawberries (and a few other things) over white background and from my research, it seems I have to have a few things, namely, a light tent and multiple strobes.I dont want to spend more money than I have to, since I was saving up to buy a wide angle lens at that time so after thinking about it for a while I went to Ikea and bought a white laundry basket, and 3 table lamps which... continue reading

Lightbox Tent photography

I love to photography the landscape and cityscape. Unfortunately, it seems that it is not quite high demand. Most of the time, they are not considered as "stock oriented" picture when I tried some creative or so called artistic point of view.After more that 250 uploads of 370 submissions picture, I come with the fact that isolated items picture are more demanded and some more for the daily used items.So I decided to try to do some "stock-oriented" picture ;) I bought a cheap lightbox tent.... continue reading

Light tent, Do you really need one ?

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
