Composition (essey, making up, layout — Lat.) is combining separate elements into one artistic whole, in which the elements are displayed most vividly in a specific visual form. The artwork is built on the yielding of all of the less significant elements to the main subject and theme, which is central to the construction. The elements of the composition are supported by light, tone system, color scheme, the moment, zoom, exposure, accents, and various contrasts. Composition is not an independent player. Just as speech is the outlet for the thoughts, composition serves only as a means for reflection of the […]
Preparing for a wedding is not an easy task. Your head spins from all of the preparations, yet they are pleasant. The core thing is to remember that you love each other and will be together forever. During the ceremony, the bride and groom are asked about their consent, to which question each of them shall answer – either “yes” or “no.” The thing is, instead of simply saying “yes” they can also exchange vows. The audience would be deeply moved, but the main thing is your “sweetheart” will never forget that moment. This is what we would suggest: It […]
A wedding is one of the most precious days in the life of lovers. On the day when they become united, not only by the power of their feelings but by the bond of wedlock, nothing should cloud this day—it must be the brightest of days.
I’ve completed another exciting trip, which included lots of positive emotions from vivid adventures with a remarkable couple, Nastia and Andrey. The photo shoot took place on a yacht in the open ocean, at a safe distance from a tornado. I don’t know why the Pacific Ocean is called “pacific”– the weather can change in a matter of minutes. A shoot beside a pink ’59 Cadillac around Varadero also provided the newlyweds with a great deal of beautiful images. The shooting was done with the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM and Canon EF 16-35 f/2.8 II USM, bodies […]
Memorable photographs are not always posed and do not depend entirely on the scenery in the frame. Of course, a castle, a fireplace, an antique armchair or a chandelier, coupled with the right models can help. But will there be life in it, or just statics and tension of the moment? The ability to render life in a still image—that is true talent! Few photographers are capable of capturing the aesthetics of the moment without interfering with their presence. A talented photographer can experience the moment, and pass it on; and then, together with you, enjoy unique and memorable frames, […]
Wedding photography in the eternal city of Rome, or in charming Florence, in delightful Venice, in romantic Verona, in hot Sicily that would drive you mad with its riot of color and mafia secrecy. Toscana and Veneto, Liguria and Emilia Romania, Calabria and Lazio – they are also to your choice. Rome. It is compelling with its architecture. In daytime it is crowded and noisy, and at night it is peopleless and enigmatic, penetrating into your heart and remaining there forever. The Eternal City. Touch the stones of the ancient Coliseum, the ancient Roman amphitheatre construction of which was finished […]
Perhaps, one can hardly find a person who would never have heard of the beautiful Venice, the pearl of the Adriatic Sea. And, despite the fact that there are lots of elegant, beautiful, inviting and mysterious places on the Earth, it is Venice that captures people’s interest most. This is because the nature of the city, which is like the Beauty itself, streaming and crystal-clear. It seems to soar in the air, like a Mirage. The scientists have it that this fragility will not remain with us for too long, and in some 20 years we may lose it forever […]
