About me

Well, I usually make photos of landscapes, especially in mountain areas, because I love them. Sometimes I try to perform some macro photography, with Mamiya bellows it's a great adventure to compose and properly expose the film. Last time I purchased a camera from the new digital world - Nikon D200 with 10 megapixel sensor inside. With digital files (from scanner or D200) I do not make any corrections with Photoshop or any other image software. I'm not a graphic designer - I'm a photographer and in my opinion the process of creating an image on the frame of a film is finished when the shutter is triggered.

My equipment:
Camera body:
Mamiya 645 Pro TL with AE Prism; Nikon D200; Nikon F65
Mamiya-Secor 35mm/f3.5
Mamiya-Secor 45mm/f2.8
Mamiya-Secor 55mm/f2.8
Mamiya-Secor 80mm/f2.8 (standard lens for medium format)
Mamiya Macro 120mm/f4 (1:1)
Mamiya APO 200mm/f2.8 (APO means APOchromatic)
Mamiya Teleconverter 2x (for APO lens, so I can combine 200x2 and work with 400mm/f5.6)
Nikon 24-120/3.5-5.6 IF/ED/VR
Cokin P series: grad grey ND2, ND4, ND8, 81A, 81B
Kasemann PL filters
B&W UV filters on every lens to protect the front from accidental damage
Manfrotto 190PROB with 029 Head
Special devices:
Mamiya bellows for macro and close-up photography. It allows you to make enlargements up to 2.3x with standard 80mm lenses.
Three types of focusing screens:
- Type A Matte (provides clear view)
- Type A4 Checker (with perpendicular lines),
- Type E Rangefinder (standard, well know focusing screen with central rangefinder spot surrounded by microprism).

    Hello everyone,
    Hi Jaime, Hi Peter, thanks for your welcome. It's just two days and I'm totally suprised. I used to send my photos on another photo-web-sites, but it was rather sad experience. One day I found this international wee and decided to try one more. And it was right idea! I hope I will find some interesting people here and will learn more about making good and better-than-now photos.
    Thanks again

    Igor :-)
