“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.”
– Frances Hodgson Burnett
I didn’t play with jpg’s, different set up’s and film simulations, inside my Fuji XT3, as I always used raw. This morning I was browsing through Youtube (during my coffee wake-me-up-hour) and found a video from a guy named Dan Baily and his “Creating custom looks”, so I decided to give it a try. What I created just walking around my neighbourhood I find really amazing! I am hooked. Fujifilm I love what you did with film simulation. It’s like real deal, or even better. There is no digital ugliness, but true grain and I love grain.
Let me show you what I mean. Here are few examples from today (and it’s not a nice day for shooting wild flowers, with strong gusts of wind).
How to confined an outdoor person?
Ireland can be a very gloomy place.
Any place can be very gloomy if someone limits your movements to 2-5km radius for 3 months.
There is a stark contrast here of “be positive all the time” and when something sucks, express it (my Croatian heritage).
– Man, this lockdown sucks!!! –
It’s hard not to mention Corona these days. Ireland is still in lockdown. It’s been more than two months now. This means we are limited to 5km radius, which is improvement from 2km. Being and artist, I continued to work, learn, feel.
In everyday walk (the one that we are allowed as an exercise) I only cary mobile phone. Usually, I would drive to the point where I could walk for an hour avoiding pretty much everyone.
That’s how series’s entitled Corona emerges.
There is not a lot to say about interesting streets of Zagreb, that is not been said already in numerous travel brochures. It is a typical European mixture of old and new architecture. One of the most recognisable features are towers of the Cathedral. It is my home town, but I am coming to it now as a stranger, not living in it for years.
I know there will be people who are appalled with the look of IR photographs, but who cares about them. They can go and look somebody else’s web site 😉
In the flood of images online, I am finding really refreshing to see the world twisted and odd with my IR camera. It’s the same but new, under-layer of something inexpressible. Maybe that it is the reason that the first thing that I started to shot with it is the ordinary vistas. Visiting Zagreb this year I made this shots and few more to come.
I was testing how it would look if the video is filmed with full spectrum IR camera and this is my result.
your vacation photos are done with Infrared Camera?
Well, very busy year is almost at the end. We traveled a lot. I had all kinds of cameras with me, a drone or two, a GoPro or two, a Fuji or two, you get the picture ;)… among that I was sketching, drawing, painting. (check silaart.picfair.com and lidija-ivanek.pixells.com for more)
Sitting in my office after I have sorted all of my “work” things, uploaded videos for sale etc… Finally I am enjoying the odd-photos, my personal best, infrareds.
