I like to photograph flowers – and orchids are obviously quite attractive. Finally, with some hints from Michal Vytlačil, I made a first trip aimed to get some orchid photos. The target was the Baba natural reserve near Brno, Czech Republic. Luckily, it was not that hard to find some decent flowers and the timing was almost perfect. The weather was also quite ok with no wind so shooting from tripod was possible.
Recently, I was asked to do some fossil photos for the new publication about protected natural reserve. Because of the technical limits and small size of the objects, I was forced to stack the final pictures (some of them from 10+ photos) to achieve good results. I also tried a new approach to artificial software backgrounds. Feel free to comment the results.
The beginning of the summer and couple free days resulted to a short road trip to Croatia and Slovenia. The weather was nice, despite being a little too hot for the hiking trip we made along the coast of southern Istrija peninsula. The rocky coast, sunsets and relics of ancient Rome architecture provided plenty of opportunities for photography.
