Golden Ball Lake

I took this photograph last summer in Aerodrom ,this is one of the couple man made lakes there as a part of the lakes(seven lakes in total ) city park Skopje .The story behind this photo was funny because a friend of mine who lives near the lakes told me you can do a fantastic photo here and i was extremely skeptical after my trip to Madrid,Spain because i saw tons of beautiful fountains there which were 100s of years old . After i arrived to see these new small lakes i was surprised and spent 4 hours shooting around the park and found this golden ball fountain most interesting so i did it in HDR and it came out really well ,all in all it was a great day for HDR.

Enjoy

Star Gazers

I did this shot in the Kozjak mountains near the Kozjak dam on the night of the super moon and meteor shower .Since the moon was so bright and i could not see the meteor showers i decided to play with my flash ,some friends and HDR technique to get the photo i envisioned in my mind and i came out 100% as i imagined it would be .The moon was just amazing and the stars so many stars  that you don’t see in the city because of the light pollution but here since it’s 35 minutes drive from the city the sky is clear as it can ever be plus there is a huge lake landscape which is breathtaking .

The technique i used here was a sb910 nikon flash to the camera right pointed to my friends the “Star Gazers”  because they were just silhouettes without the flash  but it worked out really well mixed in with the huge amounts of moon light.I mixed the flash exposure with the 4 exposures of the moon/stary skies to accomplish an even blend of light  so you can’t tell there was a flash present in this photo.It was just pure fun to see my friend holding the flash  used as a living human tripod along with the people who also came to see the meteor showers looking at us like we were clinically insane doing that photo shoot but  all in all it was a great vision to reality process which shows that if you adapt to the natures conditions as a photographer you can take great images even if the first plan did not work out .

The Old stone bridge

The Old Stone Bridge SkopjeThis is a photo i took  long time ago 😀 of the reworked Old stone bridge in Skopje, Macedonia   on the left is the new 2014 project for updating the Skopje city center .This is my first publicly famous photo and one of my favorite photos ,it was featured on many websites and blogs.

Now there is an “Arca” boat-restaurant on the right side which is finished and am looking forward to make a remake of the this photo with the new things .

This is a long exposure photo to make the water silky plus it overexposed the bridge a little bit which i like because it gives a good leading line and form,the photo was taken just under the paralel bridge a.k.a just behind .

Enjoy and share  cheers 😀
