Dances with Wolves: Monty Sloan, the Wolf Park photographer

Today I’ve managed to find another interesting YouTube video. Just like the title implies, it’s about a very courageous man, who cuddles with wolves, as if they were pussycats. The man in question is Monty Sloan, the Wolf Park photographer. At the time this video was shot, he was making photos of the main pack ...

Additional shots taken with the DP3M and the Marumi +5

Over the last couple of days I’ve been carrying the DP3M with the Marumi +5 with me. Sadly the sun shone only for brief periods of time, making it hard to find insects and spiders. The few, which appeared in front of my lens, were smallish flies and spiders, unsuitable to demonstrate the effect of ...

Tipp: Bee Inventory and Monitoring Lab’s Bee Macros

Ever since I’ve bought the Marumi achromatic lens, macro is all I can think about. Today I was at it again, but couldn’t find the time to process and upload any of them, maybe tomorrow. In search of inspiration, thanks to the PetaPixel’s article, I’ve stumbled upon US Geological Survey’s Bee Inventory and Monitoring Lab ...

Brain Twister: Joseph Ford’s Aerial

I’m curious by nature, I love puzzles. I like optical illusions and photos which play tricks on my sense of vision and my brain above all. Two and a half months ago I wrote about an image by Bela Borsodi, which was so tricky that one could hardly tell whether it was a photomontage or ...

Tip: Joe Capra’s Time Laps Videos

When I view my own photos I have a hard time believing that pictures can be worth more than a thousand words. Then I stumble upon a jewel like Joe Capra’s time laps videos and arrive to the conclusion that the old saying is true. His videos are beautiful beyond words. How can one describe ...

Sigma DP3M and Marumi +5 achromatic lens

I was entertaining the idea of buying an achromatic lens for my DP3 Merrill for quite some time now. After a lengthy research I’ve decided to get the Marumi DHG 200 aka Marumi +5, which is also being sold under the “Dörr” brand. First impressions are very positive. The small close-up lens transforms the DP3M ...

Review: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 ART

Sigma 30mm f/1.4 ART is the first lens belonging to one of the tree new series from Sigma (Art, Sports, Contemporary), which I’ve had the chance to use more extensively. After a month of use, many photos and two comparisons in regards to bokeh and sharpness with the 30mm f/1.4 EX, I find that I ...

Battle of the 30s: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX vs 30mm f/1.4 ART PART2

I must confess that I like the act of taking pictures a considerable amount more than drawing comparisons afterwards. This is why so much time has passed since the last Bokeh-comparison between the ART and the EX HSM. A month later, I could finally get myself to begin searching for suitable motifs equipped with my ...
