I finally shot a roll of film that has been in my mamiya for quite some time now. Sometime in between I made this portrait…

Končno sem porabil film, ki sem ga že pred kar nekaj časa vložil v mamiyo. Enkrat vmes sem naredil ta portret…

Orchard House / Hiša v sadovnjaku

Category : Black & White, Infrared, Landscape · No Comments · by Aug 28th, 2016

Wow, I can’t believe it has been so long since I have posted my last blog and I never have been so busy before. Last few months were really crazy exciting! I finally made the big step and made my long lasting dreams come true. I opened my own  photography business in Germany, where I’ve been living for over a year now. Well, I actually made two big steps, as I also changed my permanent address to Germany… Long live bureaucracy!  So from now on, I guess I’ll be geting my voting poll abroad.

Today I woke up early, went for an early morning ride with my bike and took my infrared camera along for a spin. It was refreshing to photograph something just for me, not for a client after a while… I drove past this amazing dream-like orchard and stopped there for a while to make a few photos. I am very pleased with the outcome.

Oh, I almost forgot to admit I got an instant-karma lesson today. I’ve picked a plum from the tree and ate it. Well, it was protein enriched, if you get what I mean. It’s a good thing I had a home made flap-jack bar with me to cover up the taste…

Huh, ne morem verjetni, da je že tako dolgo minilo, odkar sem zadnjič objavil nekaj na blogu. Zadnjih nekaj mesecev je bilo resnično razburljivih! Končno sem naredil velik korak v življenju in z odprtjem lastnega podjetja tu v Nemčiji uresničil svoje dolgoletne želje!  No, pravzaprav sem naredil dva velika koraka, saj sem bil nekako iz birokratskih razlogov prisiljen spremeniti tudi svoj stalni naslov. Izgleda, da bom od sedaj naprej svoj glas na volitvah oddajal preko pošte…

Kakorkoli, danes je bil lep dan. Zbudil sem se zjutraj, sedel na kolo in s seboj vzel svoj infrardeč aparat. Po dolgem času je prav pasalo fotografirati nekaj samo zame, za dušo. Sprazniti glavo in izostriti pogled. Peljal sem se mimo tega čudovitega sadovnjaka, kjer sem se ustavil za nekaj časa in naredil par posnetkov. Nekaj jih je prav čudovitih!

No, pa da ne pozabim, dobil sem tudi lekcijo instant karme. Iz sadovnjaka sem odtrgal eno zrelo slivo, ki pa je bila nekako obogatena z beljakovinami, če me razumete… Še dobro, da sem imel s seboj domačo energijsko ploščico, s katero sem si popravil okus…

Just an ordinary street scene…

Le običajni prizor z ulice…

Stranded / Nasedla

Category : Black & White, Infrared, Landscape · (2) Comments · by Jul 4th, 2016

A boy is sitting on a beach of Valtaki with the wreck of a stranded cargo ship Dimitrios behind him. The story says the ship was smuggling cigarettes from Turkey to Italy and got caught by the authorities in 1981. They are supposed to have untied the ship to let the sea currents carry it to the shore. It is stranded on this sandy beach ever since. Just as sun has set behind the mountains, it lit up the hills across the bay behid the wreck making for a magnificent display… Valtaki, Peloponnese peninsula, Greece.
The story behind how I made this photo is also interesting. At first I was photographing long expositions in the visible spectrum. Air was really dense and I could barely see the hills behind the shipwreck. As the sun has set behind the hills, I have called it a day and went to a beach bar for a frappe (my newly discovered addiction). While waiting for my order, I pulled out my IR camera just to test the visibility in these conditions. The hills I could barely see with my eyes, were simply spectacular…

Fant sedi na plaži z nasedlo tovorno ladjo Dimitrios. Legenda pravi, da je ladja tihotapila cigarete iz Turčije v Italijo, pri čemer so jo prijele oblasti leta 1981.Ti naj bi jo ponoči odvezali in pustili, da jo morski tokovi odnesejo na obalo, kjer je končala svojo morsko pot.
Ravno, ko je sonce zahajalo za hrib, je osvetlilo hribovje na drugi strani zaliva in pričaralo čudovito vzdušje in predstavo… Valtaki, Peloponeški polotok, Grčija.
Zgodba o nastanku te fotografije je tudi zanimiva. Sprva sem v vidnem spektru delal dolge ekspozicije. V zraku je bilo veliko vlage, vidljivost pa zelo nizka. Hribovje za razbitino se je komaj kaj videlo, zato sem pospravil opremo in se odpravil do bara na plaži na frape, mojo najnovejšo odvisnost. Med čakanjem na pijačo, sem iz torbe potegnil IR aparat in sklenil preveriti vidljivost v infrardečem spektru. Hribovje, ki ga s prostim očesom skoraj da nisem več videl, je zasijalo v vsej svoji lepoti…

Posers / Pozerki

Category : Black & White, Infrared · No Comments · by Jun 22nd, 2016

Not only well behaved, Zoe and Lilo are also excellent posers… I’ve been doing a lot of animal portraits in infrared lately and I have to say I enjoy it pretty much!

Poleg tega, da sta lepo vzgojeni, sta Zoe in Lilo tudi odlični pozerki… Zadnje čase delam precej infrardečih portretov živali in moram reči, da se izredno zabavam!

A Forest Lilly

Category : Black & White, Infrared · No Comments · by Jun 17th, 2016

I did a shoot with a horse named Lilly and finished it with an infrared portrait. She is a true poser.

Fotografiral sem kobilo po imenu Lilly in za konec naredil z infrardečim portretom. Ali ni prava pozerka?

Sunday Morning Portrait / Nedeljski jutranji portret

Category : Portret · No Comments · by Jun 10th, 2016

This relaxed Sunday morning portrait session I did with the charming model and fashion blogger Ajda was a perfect opportunity to test out my new camera, the Nikon D750. As you probably know, photographers always want to fiddle with photos to get the maximum of colors and information out of them, right? Well, here I didn’t have to do much other than gently pull on some highlight and contrast adjustments. Oh, and I converted one to black and white. Ajda doesn’t need retouching even on early Sunday mornings and the sensor delivers some pretty good color rendering. Can’t wait for the next shoot! Probably this Sunday already, but it is going to be pretty muddy…

Sproščen nedeljski jutranji portret s simpatično modelko in modno blogerko Ajdo je bil odlična priložnost za preizkusiti moj nov fotoaparat, nikon D750. Verjetno veste, kako fotografi zelo radi obdelujemo fotografije, da bi iz njih izvlekli največ? No, tukaj mi ni bilo potrebno narediti veliko, razen majhnih popravkov svetlih delov in kontrastov. No, pa eno sem pretvoril v črnobelo. Ajda ne rabi retuše niti niti v zgodnjih nedeljskih jutranjih urah, tipalo aparata pa se tudi odreže res odlično. Komaj čakam naslednje fotografiranje! Verjetno že to nedeljo, ampak bo precej blatno…
