Bad weather photo subject ideas: cats and food!

I‘d love to grab my tripod and SD1 and take some photos outside, but the weather conditions and light shortage make it impossible.  The only thing I can do I guess is taking my Sigma DP2 Merrill and   using something I come across on my way to work or while shopping as a subject.  There ...

Visiting the marketplace in Zemun with the Sigma DP2 Merrill

I was at the Zemun marketplace today to get some food for the following days. You can find everything there ― from smoked carp to pumpkin pie; two of my co-workers joked that you can even find bird milk there – but most importantly, at least for me, it provides endless opportunities for pictures. So ...

I just couldn’t resist: I bought a Sigma DP2 Merrill

The piggy bank’s empty, but I am ecstatic! I received my new camera tree days ago and believe me it’s not just any camera; it’s DP2 Merril, which I’ve craved for for so long When I switched from Canon and Nikon to SD1, I was actually flirting with the idea of buying a compact camera; ...

Happyhour photo tour

Thank God the days are getting longer! I did not get a chance to shoot much in daylight recently. Capturing a sunset after work? Forget about it! Since it’s been so depressingly dark (and for a photographer even more so) my workmates head straight for the pub to have some ćevapčići with either a beer ...

Long exposure and zoom in effect with the Sigma 10-20 f3.5

Today, once again, I have been taking pictures with the ultra-wide-angle lens. This time I decided to put the so called “zoom in effect” (what a funny word, actually) suitability of the Sigma UWW to the test. The zoom in effect works like this: (clearly) exposure has to be sufficiently long, so that there is ...

In Search of inspiration: Frieke Janssens “Smoking Kids”

Whether cowboys, musicians or go-getters, in Hollywood productions it is common to present such cool dudes with a cigarette in their mouth. I couldn’t tell what was actually cooler ― smoking or “the dude” ― until I saw Frieke Janssens’ project “Smoking Kid © Frieke Janssens As a matter of fact there is nothing cool about ...

Out and about with an ultra wide angle lens

Only recently a friend of mine, who is also interested in photography, told me that a regular use of a single focal length or a single lens can sharpen one’s perception. That is why I dedicated the past few days to explore SD1 and Sigma 10-20 f/3.5. As far as I remember, I have never ...
