Street Photography in London

London is a fantastic city for street photography which offers amazing photographic opportunities. My favorite places for street photography in London are…

Waterfall (video and photos)

There is something magical about waterfalls. This is just a small waterfall on a stream, not far from home, but I really like this place. See for yourself how beautiful it is. Waterfall (video and photos)

Lit with a Beauty Dish

Using a Beauty Dish for an edgy “three dimensional” look. Example photographs shot on a white seamless background, with a description of the lighting setup.

A Simple Portrait

The idea was to create a simple natural-looking portrait. The model is an actress and I hope these photographs will be a strong accent in her portfolio. A Simple Portrait

Soft Light, Hard Light

Soft light and hard light in portrait photography. The two light types give different looks, either of which may be suitable depending on the situation.

Always Know Your DOF!

A simple way to roughly estimate the depth of field (DOF) when shooting portraits. This trick will help you better estimate the depth of field in portraits.

Overpowering the Sun

Overpower the sun with a flash and a neutral density (ND) filter and achieve a great photographic effect. Overpowering the sun is a cool lighting technique.

Wedding: Jagoda and Mariusz

Finally the big day came. The weather forecast had been uncertain, but eventually it turned out good. Armed in a double-checked gear and faith in my skills I rushed to capture the moments. Here are several of the images. Wedding: Jagoda and Mariusz

Kasia Photo Shoot

I love photographing people but I always get a bit nervous before a photo shoot. The images usually come out nice but I cannot know it for sure beforehand. Perhaps doing proper location scouting would make me feel more confident. Kasia Photo Shoot

Jerusalem, Navel of the World

Jerusalem is one of the most interesting places in the world. I spent 39 days in the thick of things, a few steps away from Golgotha and the Holy Sepulchre.
