Glad that Stocksy United liked my last batch of photos and even added 3 of them to the curated feed. All full of mysterious surreal vibes, so that makes me even more happy!

The fist one is Mysterious dark autumn forest lake, the second one Centipede insect close-up and the third one is Sunset river

Great to see something a bit different from the usual getting a bit of the spotlight 😉

 

Stocksy Top 5 of the Month: March 2018

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this blog, I guess I’m still trying to figure out what direction it should take. The Stocksy Top 5 of the Month is a section that gets a lot of attention and some of my best photos are available for licensing at Stocksy United, so I’m definitely going to continue this section, even though I’ll most likely be a little late, like this month, because we’re already pass the middle of April.

About 20 photos were added to my Stocksy collection of premium stock photography so it was really hard narrowing them down to only 5. I’ve chosen a bit of everything: strange night forest photography, symmetry on moody empty fields, surreal cave photography, misty spring morning landscapes and a strange forest detail. Here are my Top 5:

Dew drops on green plant – simple things

dew_drops_on_green_plants_in_the_morning
Detail of fresh dew drops on green plant in the morning

This image – Dew drops on green plant – has been getting some attention lately and I remembered that it’s often the simple things that work. The dew covered plant is a subject that has been photographed again and again but each photo is unique and succeeds in transmitting that special morning freshness.

I took this photo on a foggy morning while I was trying to enrich my Magic of the Forest collection. After walking through the woods I got to a clearing and noticed the beautiful drops of dew on the green plants. I used my 90 mm macro lens, an exposure of 1/250 and f/8 @ ISO 160.  I used the flash to make the dew drops shine a little bit and pop out. Even if I photographed certain places a lot of times in the past 9 years, I am always delighted to find something interesting every time. I think this is the beauty of visual arts: you can discover a place over and over again and see it in a different way, a different perspective every time.

Stocksy Valentine’s Day Photos

Although I am usually interested in the atmospheric and moody part of nature, I also find flowers with their colors, softness and universal beauty as an appealing subject. I use techniques like screens and all sorts of textures placed in front of them to make them a bit more special. Maybe I’ll write more about the process sometime.

I’ve made the photos above (plus others) available in a gallery now just in time for Valentine’s Day. You can get them by clicking the link in the description of each photo, or by going to the gallery “The Softness of Flowers”

New images at Stocksy

I am delighted that 9 new images are now part of the Stocksy collection:

As you can see the dominant theme is the winter, courtesy of the holiday season that is approaching, but this latest batch is sprinkled with some autumn photos and also some interesting experiments.

You can get them and many others exclusively on Stocksy

Rainy Autumn Days

Autumn Rain Detail in the Forest

There’s been some cold and rainy days where I live. Good for photography but really bad for the equipment and the photographer. The photo above was taken last year, on  a similar cold and rainy autumn day. The raindrops flying trough the air are visible in contrast to the dark forest, and the last leaves on the branch give a sense of a late autumn. Sometimes the atmosphere is in the little details. I love the autumn rain, but I do hope the weather gets better – I had to postpone a photo tour because of it.

This moody autumn detail is available for licensing at Stocksy.
