Film Minolta / Плёночная Minolta

I love the translucent quality of these images. The light and the colors turned out to be very soft and almost dreamy, gently turning from one hue into another. Believe it or not, these images were taken in very warm December day. The camera in the photos is a film Minolta, very cool and very …

Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinite

Infinite- has no beginning and no end. Like lights in this abstract photo. You can view it from any side and angle you want – I won’t tell you what is right. This photo is part of my “Afterimage” series. I want to include a few of these – light blue photos that will probably …

Woman and nature

I’ve met this pleasant girl and her cool mom a few weeks ago. I came to like them right away, as they were very nice and communicative. Plus, I do like her looks. This shoot came very naturally and pleasantly. I was very encouraged by the results. The photos look seaside-inspired to me. The lake …

Happy accidents / Счастливые случайности

An old image that usually provokes a lot of comments and opinions. In my experience people really like it. Maybe it’s the composition or black and white palette that reminds of “classic” images.

Beautiful fall with its restricted palette and serenity is just too much to miss. These days, I take out my camera very often to capture all that the nature is showing off. …

Spotlight: Christy Lee Rogers

The photos of this self-taught photographer are stunning. Dramatic light, splashes of colors, almost abstract outlines of people make her photographs look classically baroque. It seems that viewers have seen these light and colors long time ago, doesn’t it? — Фото этого фотографа-самоучки великолепны. Драматичный свет, всплески цветов, почти абстрактные очертания людей делают ёё фотографии классически барокко. Кажется, что зрители уже видели этот свет и цвета давным давно, неправда ли?  

Of beauty / О красоте

Ah, the beauty of the world. It’s everywhere; you just have to be open to it. Notice it in minute details, experience its feel. Touch gentle fabric, make out the slightest change in hues of the sky, see the spark in the eyes. I believe that beauty is one of utmost important things for happiness. …
