Winter in Slovenia workshop
It started with mild weather, but luckinly there was surprising amount of afternoon mist, so we started at the hill just outside of Ljublana airport and finished up at lake Bled to take some photos at the dusk.
Flash duration is another important paramether of high speed photography system. Too slow duration means messy photo, like the one below:
Wildflowers of Vojsko plateau
Since Vojsko is quite high, at it's highest point it's above 1100m, I hoped that spring wildflowers would be late enough for our workshop. Unfortunatelly for workshop, but luckily for me, lilys were is full flowering.
backlight birds in flight
It was a pleasn't experiment. I had quite some difficulties with lighting set up, especialy with front light. It still doesn't look quite right as there is too much shadow under the bird's neck and belly. I'll need to use another type of support, as my light stand can't go any lower.Rollei adaptor performed flawlesly and I didn't need to adjust the focussing point at all from first try! Anyway, here are two photos I like the most from yesterday mornings session:
winter in Slovenia workshop
The week before workshop was quite cold and we still had some snow laying in the lowlands, but when workshop aproaches all that white stuff melted away. For more winterish feeling we hiked the mountain just across the Austrian border, and it was well worth it. Not just for the photos. The hut at the top have a very good apple strudel. But to be honest, after an hour and a half every decent strudel becomes a really good one.
Birds in flight
My bird feede are quite bussy this year. This time I focussed on tits, and here are a few results:
Review of Schneider 180mm 2,8 lens for Rollei 6000 system
the die is cast
It's almost winter time and drab condition in landscape made me focus on high speed photography once more. There are some technical details I would like to share with you.
Autumn workshops in Slovenia
Together with my English friend and excellent landscape photographer Guy Edwardes we run photographic workshops in Slovenia for over ten years with lots of research both on computer and on terain, we manage to stockpile enough locations, that we can almost guarantee, that our participants will come home with interesting photos in almost every weather and light conditions possible.
