Child

After a long pause, I took my camera again. Which one? The analog one – It was time for my Yashica FX-3 to wake up again. I bought Ilford PAN 400 roll of film this time, and the 50mm lens is still on. That grain, I love it. Here are a couple of photos – I chose some featuring my daughter, so it’s a series now :) .

Aerial spraying (Revenge of humans)

O.K, mosquitoes literally killed us this summer, and tonight we’ll have the honour to sleep normally without getting bit, as the public utility companies finally remembered to do their job.
I just wanted to take a shot of the small aeroplane spraying death over mosquitoes (aerial spraying), but a bird flew in to my frame at the exact moment I took the shot. Auto zoom changed its mind and the bird turned out more important than the aeroplane. I’m so happy this happened! What do you think?

And then… Yeah, I photographed the aeroplane as I wanted initially. The angle was better, actually :D

CATCH THE LIGHTNING 3.0

This time, I was interested in the storm, but I wanted to make an animated gif of a lightning. Since my camera Canon Rebel XS does not have the video function, I used my mobile phone to record the video. The rain hit hard and I had to stay behind the closed window.

The most interesting part of the video was this nearby hit, and I uploaded it on Instagram

 

Afterwards, I took the 17 individual frames, the relevant ones, and made this animated gif for a better view of the lightning. As you can see, it was a double hit.

Another time

One of my common paths through the city leads me next to this magnificent building I take photos of from time to time. Here is a detail. It is the Museum of Vuk and Dositej. The architectural style is eye candy. Here I finally returned that brilliant 50 mm lens, for the last two rolls of film had some unsuccessful photos due to lens focusing issues (the other 50 mm lens I tested at the time).

At The Barber’s

An old barbershop caught my eye last summer. Right from another time, but still open. Downtown Belgrade is a place of franchise stores and coffeshops today. I’m glad at least certain spots and people preserve the spirit of old times. I’m so happy that I had my old SLR instead of the D-SLR camera with me at that moment.At The Barber's

Total Eclipse of the Moon (2011)

Total Eclipse of the Moon. 15.06.2011. Belgrade. A small practice project of mine, I thought it would be interesting enough for the Projects section. Well, I never tried my Canon Rebel XS on an eclipse before the 2011 attempt. Preiously I tried to shoot a moon eclipse with my compact camera Canon A700 and failed big time. Well, I was not satisfied with this attempt also, since there was lot of humidity in the air, leftovers from that morning’s clouds and rain. Anyway, to shoot an eclipse of the Moon is a totally different thing than to shoot it on some other occasion.

I was very happy about my previous shot of the Moon (check it out below, it was taken in May 2011) and thought that I would be able to repeat the quality but I… Just observe this one  as an amateur photo story of the event. Every one of these individual shots of Moon above required entirely different ISO and aperture parameters, so I was rather busy at the time.

The next photo “Touch the Moon” is the other shot of the Moon I am fond of. It was not an eclipse, but the conditions were right. If only I had a 700mm lens…

Fog over Danube

One of my old photos, from January 2008, shot on the banks of the Danube river. The photo came out rather dark (the whole series), so it needed some light correction later on. If only I knew then what I know now… There are a couple more photos of these boats, I might add some later on if I get around to editing them.

Hair

Photographing hair can be done differently. Not everything is for fashion magazines. It’s all about composition.

ps. At the time this website was located on a different domain ( it was moody-cat.com), it’s design was showcased in a Pepin Press reference web design book “Web Design Index 9″ for the year 2010, showing “the good stuff” in the world of web design at the time. This photo was accidentally the one that was the first one at the site when the screenshot was made. Nice!
