So what can you do on Saturday evening after reading to your kid and watching ‘Burnt’? Well you can do what I am doing right now – write your first blog post ever. For starters – I apologize for my English. Even though I graduated as an English teacher, I haven’t been using English for long time, so please try not to pay much attention to it.
Am I a photographer? I don’t know. What I know is that taking shots and everything that comes with it gives me hell of a pleasure. I live in Poland, yep some people hear ‘Holland’, but no, it’s not a beautiful city of Amsterdam (which I love!). I live in Gliwice – about 186.000 people, one coal mine, one train station and plenty of photo opportunities. Yes that’s right – I strongly belive that you can find a great subject to shoot basically anywhere. I have a beautiful family here, I have my small online business here and I have my photo walks here. Few months ago I started 365 days project, since then I click every single day (except for 2 or 3 days when I was so sick that I was not able to get up from my bed). I guess I will write some more on the 365 project in other posts because I believe it is a great way for improving photo skills.
So what this blog will be about? I am not sure in what direction it’ll lead me. My first and main goal is to be more or less regular on posting. I love to hear from you, any kind of feedback is more than welcome, so please do not hesitate to ask my anything or leave a comment. Now it is 6 minutes past midnight and I finished post processing of one of my yesterday’s shots :
I cropped this image a bit in a kind of unusual way for me – into the sqaure format. I prefer more cinematic-like images, more panoramic ones. However in this particular case I wanted to have it all – the benches, main subjects, and the lamp with that lighted snow. Of course the shot is candid, it was a Friday evening in the main square of my hometown and it was quite unusual that I managed to take a shot of these teenagers without almost anyone else in the background. I don’t have a title for it yet, I guess I will name it “Teenage Kicks”. I always have music or film title ideas when it comes to naming my shots.
Ok, so that’s it. First post. Feeling good!
