Armenia on my iPhone


If someone told me 5 years ago that a mobile phone can deliver pictures like that, and with no post-processing applied, I would have never believed it. Just press the button, and get the result. All the pictures below are taken on iPhone 6 with Degradr. Armenia, July 2015.

Tokyo


It was my third trip to Japan during last 12 monthes. I came at the invitation of FOX International Channels and National Geographic TV with master-class on street photography. The most interesting was I and my students used mainly on compact cameras like Fujifilm XT-1 and iPhones only. Group photo album will be published soon as a result of this workshop, but now I want to share with you 18 my pictures. All of them were taken on the iPhone 6. With Degradr App it’s my favorite camera the last time :)

Dalniye Zelentsy


A semi-deserted locality in Murmansk Oblast on the shores of the Barents Sea. Now there is not even a road leading to it, while some 30–40 years back it used to host the Murmansk Marine Biological Institute. I’ve been there in 2009, with a car from Moscow. It took me 2 days for the first 2000 km, and 6 more hours on an off-roader across tundra for the last 30 km. Now, 5 years past, I recalled that trip in relation to the new Russian Oscar–nominated movie “Leviathan” that was shot on location in those exact places.

Landscape photography


At some point I was shooting mainly landscape photos. Now, with the time passing, I rarely like any of those, but some still stand out. Like this simple one, taken at the location, where the “Island” movie was shot on the shores of the White sea, next to Kem town (Russia). The photo is taken back in 2009.

Learning photography. What really matters


Someone has sent me a link to an article recommending interesting blogs about photography. I liked the beginning:

There are numerous ways to improve one’s skills – from free online lessons to real courses at photo schools. Books, video guides, workshops – but what really matters? Do sessions that promise to refine your skills pay off or are you just lining the pockets of clever people with more experience than yourself? Should you spend time reading free articles by various gurus or is that just another self-promotion trick? Today we are going to talk about what you can learn for free.

Argh. What a great opener – and right away winds down to a list of free blogs, articles and books (mine is also recommended). In my opinion, that’s not nearly enough. Materials like that are good and valuable accessories, but they don’t lay down the foundation. You may ask, what is the most important thing then? How should one go about learning photography? Because it’s mostly newbies who ask those questions, I would answer as follows on their level – that is, keeping things simple:

In progress…


I’ve been working on this series for three years now, and finally the third photo appeared! Three photos for three years, this is a good result :) Of course, this is not the only series I’m working on, but one of the my favorites. I like it so tenderly that didn’t even come up with its name yet.
