This is a story of organizing a photoshoot to happen in Dubai with the clients being in Germany and many circumstances coming in the process of trying to make it happen. Continue reading How Hard Could it Be to Photograph a Container Truck on the Dubai Meydan Bridge?
Hello my lovely friends, I usually talk about photography-related topics here, but I have a few other interests in life such as “house gardening” being one of them. When you have over 60 plants at home (yes, perhaps we went overboard raiding the Garden Center when the lock-down was lifted in Dubai), it is hard to keep tabs on the needs of each one of … Continue reading How Not To Kill Your Plants
This photo I took about a year ago, roaming around Dubai constructions zones one evening. It’s surprisingly clear for an August night, usually the sky is full of humidity and you can’t really see so clear. 10 seconds at F 8.0, ISO 400 taken with Canon EOS 6D and EF24-105 L IS USM lens.

So I always wanted to hang out with photographers. It sounds fun, right? And so conveniently Fujifilm decided to do a photowalk in the “old” Dubai part so I thought – why not? But as I thought why not, my newly acquired husband thought “no way you are going alone”. And those of you who have the experience of hanging out with people who are … Continue reading Night Photowalk with Fujifilm in Dubai.
Hello friend, Wishing you a beautiful evening or morning, whatever suits. I just got a schengen visa for 2 years and have no more double pages in my passport. Living the dream, hey… the passport is 4 years old and I have no more space left. But at least I can go to Iceland for the next 2 years at any time. Maybe I will. … Continue reading Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.
I’ve been away for a bit, had to get married… busy times. But the story is different today. The story lies down in Londrangar Cliffs. Such a fascinating place to visit… but you better be careful. You see these lava rocks? They are pretty slippery, especially when you are trying to jump around with two cameras around your neck and a tripod. My friend Denny managed … Continue reading The Dangers behind Londrangar Cliffs
There are chances that you haven’t been to Iceland, but you’ve seen Kirkjufell Mountain and its’ waterfalls photos. That’s actually what comes up first in Google search. This is also the first location in Elia Locardi’s “Photographing the World” video tutorial. For me, it was the first sunset location in Iceland. I must admit, I haven’t researched much about photographic locations in Iceland before going … Continue reading Getting Lost in West Iceland – Kirkjufell Stories.
I just watched the video tutorial of Elia Locardi where he shoots the The Londrangar Cliffs in his F-Stoppers series of videos “Photographing the World”. I have two views of that location – one view from the same side as Elia, but at sunset, and the other one is where the sun is behind us. I looked at my photos of the sunset and first … Continue reading If The Sunset is Failing, Turn Around.
Pain is Inevitable, Suffering is Optional. I’d like to open this post with this very wise quote from one of my favourite Japanese writers Haruki Murakami. And even though he was using it in relation with running a marathon, it can pretty apply pretty well to many aspects of life. I am very sad today because my beloved cat has departed to the cat heaven … Continue reading Sleep Tight, my Beautiful Friend.
