Physics and photography - white balance

  Word photography is actually a combination of two words which have roots in Greek language. “Photon” which can be translated to light and “graphia” which means drawing. So, if you combine it together it sounds like “painting with light”. If we deep dive into the first word – photon, we are actually visiting the realm of physics because photon is an electromagnetic wave carrier, a single quantum of the electromagnetic wave. There are many types of electromagnetic (EM) waves which... continue reading

Product photography: my first experience

    As you can see, I have some experience with photoshoots with models, so I thought that product photography was easy.Last week my daughter asked me to take some pictures of crocheting she makes and sells via her Etsy webshop, DC crochet Design. She was facing some shortcomings of smartphones to do product photography. So, yesterday I grabbed my equipment and turned one of our bedrooms into a small photo studio. I have done something similar before so the first steps were easy.-... continue reading

Swanning around Southampton

It’s not especially uncommon for me to be wrong, and this week has been no exception. I recently had a whinge about the local mute swans being difficult to photograph because of their propensity to position themselves in bright sunshine on dark ponds. However, they have been my photographic saviours of late because it has been damp and murky and anything even vaguely bright has been a beautiful gift to my camera.So the mute swans have had my vote almost every day this week (except for Thursday,... continue reading

Photo of a white flower on a stone.

 Photo of a white flower on a stone. As for me, a very good background turned out, the flower itself is very small and grows very much in our forests. Do not find that it is a bit like a lily and it makes it even more attractive. The idea of the photo came quite spontaneously when I had already taken all the photos and was going to go home and I always wanted to take a photo of this flower, but I did not know how to make it more original than just growing from the ground. I hope you enjoy this... continue reading

Today, I came down to the white tower to remember my past and to remember the good times.  continue reading

Write with the light

I've always liked black and white photos but now digital has replaced everything.
