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.
For me being an artist means, to be in a constant state of curiosity.
We, my hubby and I love to fly with our drones. Me, as this gives me birds eye perspective, something I wouldn’t be able to see otherwise. My hubby, he loves to fly.
It is still the same feeling I had as a child, wide opened eyes, trying to see the world, to take it all in at once. Fifty years later and it is still not finished, not all seen, not all known. There is magic everywhere. I am a believer. For me God’s creation is so wast and never ending, I’ll have eternity to continue exploring and even then it will not be finished. There is still and will be so much new to get to know and comprehend.
Infrared is new in our life. We bought converted Fuji Xa3 full spectrum. It means I can see the light waves that I can’t see otherwise. Suddenly every landscape that I photographed is changed, it is different, the same, but new.
And I didn’t even start to experiment with different times of the day, or even with long exposure.
Above photos are taken on a sunny day, around noon.
And this one is a morning photo, cloudy morning… The light is completely different.
I didn’t use any software manipulations.
It is the same camera, with analog Minolta lens attached and has Tiffen red filter 25A.
Christmas time is …. different for each and every one of us.
As a visual artist, I recorded what I saw with Exa 1a camera and on Kodak Tmax film.
Wishing you all very blessed and happy Christmas!
…and I can keep posting photographs – just for the love of it 😊
Minolta X500 and Rollei Retro 400S, developed in RO9 one shot.
Rain in Ireland comes suddenly and disappears suddenly. Standing on the edge of the cliffs and watching ships that pass by on the horizon is one of my favourite things.
You need to see this photograph up close and personal…the grain from the film is “the thing” that gives a specific feel to it.
One of the happiest moments in my life is when scent of a freshly opened tube of etching ink is spreading through the air and a new etched Toyobo plate is in front of me. The dark, dark heart of mine 😉
