About me

I always dreamed of a camera that would allow me to make a virtually unlimited number of photos of anything I fancied. Thanks to the "digital revolution", this dream became a reality - thank you Pentax -. You can compare it with skiing as in the old days, with a strip card: every extra ride had a tangible financial repercussion, while a day- or weekcard frees the mind considerably. I'm a fervent skier, by the way. Although I consider myself being a sculptor now, I studied painting during a few years, and it's still a major interest of mine of course. During travels, I used to carry a videocamera -unlimited image capturing capacities remember-, planning to use stills for paintings. But videocams are bulky, the images are coarse, so a compact stills camera is a far better solution for me. Favourite themes would be landscapes, trees and architecture. Equipment for the moment : a Pentax Optio 550, first compact to come with a 5-time zoom. I' m still discovering new possibilities with the machine. After having taken almost 40 000 pics in less than two years, I'm now trying to make a selection and share part of it with FC.

    Thank you Filip for stopping on my picture(s) Getting Worse. That mountains behind you seem to me much higher than "my" Dolomiti. You have interesting attempts for moving photo from driving car and so on. "Still sleepy" I also like. And where are your mountains?? Greetings Lubos.

    Dear Filip, I thank for your response about a photo Two roads. I have looked your works, many have liked me. Cycling the summer to me has liked. In my opinion in it a photo you have made 2 objects which stop a sight of the spectator. An interesting tree in the center of the staff and a red spot in a corner. I think they argue among themselves, it is always better if one object of attention. Successes to you. Yours faithfully Igor

    Hello Filip,
    Thank You for the comment on my photo "A day of rest". The photograph is of a corner of downtown of Tampa, Florida which usually succumbs to the hustle bustle of the weekdays and stands lone at the weekends.

    Of course I don't mind you saying so. Thanks for the honest opinion! :)

    How fitting that your photos seem to have a painterly quality. I wanted to say they had an impressionistic feel but fear that since I'm not a painter, nor do I have any art background at all to speak of, that I would have my genre's confused.

    In any event they're very enjoyable to view and, in my opinion, different is good. :)
