Welcome to my site. I hope you really enjoy viewing the photos as much as I enjoy creating them. Photography is the way to express myself, to develop my vision and to deliver it to the viewer. I invite you to explore, feel and dream with me, through my lens and perception. Every time during the photo creation process, I keep asking myself – what is the reality? Does it even exist? I believe we, as human beings, can only see a filtered reality, our own little world. Every little world is beautiful in something, is perfect to some extent. And so my art is a way to share a little bit of my world with you.
Photography equipment is important, but the vision is even more so. Currently, I use Nikon D750, which is a full frame pro camera. But some of my best photos were created with more humble D7000 or even D80. And I could never beat those photos, they are still present in my top photos gallery. The main lens I currently use is Tamron 15-30/2.8, secondary lenses are Nikon 50/1.8D and Nikon 70-300 VRII. I don’t use any filters.
This topic is highly debated among both photographers and viewers. Nothing is set in stone and never will. So what I say here is my own opinion and perception. It may change one day, it may even become opposite, but now it is like this.
Photographers had always edited photos. Previously it was a darkroom, now it is digital. Well, of course, it doesn’t mean if everyone is doing it, it’s good. The thing is – a camera is merely a tool. No tool is perfect. Period.
When I feel creativity or inspiration something as if descends upon me. Maybe it’s the God, maybe it’s the Universe, it doesn’t matter. I see some pictures or images with my internal sight and then try to capture what I saw as best as I can. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it does not. Camera, as a physical device, has its limitations. My vision and imaginations have no limits. My eyes are also devices but crafted much better than the camera. So I just don’t see it as appropriate to entrust the final materialized idea to the less advanced device of all available.
Photography editing is another level of art an artist can perform to fine-tune, to create and to express himself. As long as the final product evokes emotions, it’s successful.
All of my images are edited. Most of them are close to the reality as I saw it.
I respect another point of view when people try to do the reporting and only allow very little editing. They have the right to do so.
