This Friday some family members came for a visit and a sleepover and on Saturday they were baby sitting, while we crossed the border over to Sweden to do some shopping for Yule/Christmas.
I’ve uploaded a bunch of photos to my Flickr account today. I believe most of them have already been published in this blog already. Here’s a random preview of some: Check out Flickr to see the rest: http://www.flickr.com/photos/91286401@N03/
This post is in memory of Israeli musician Arik Einstein who died last night. Here’s one of his famous songs, מה אתה עושה כשאתה קם בבוקר. Or, in English: What do you do when you get up in the morning? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88LI1-QesqE (Just in case you were wondering: It’s Josie Katz dancing in the video.) «Arik Einstein, widely considered one of…
I played around with Photomatix today and decided to create two different versions of the same photo: one made with Photomatix and Lightroom, the other with Photoshop and Lightroom. The motive is the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, Israel. After the Muslim conquest of Jerusalem in 637 CE, Umayyad Caliphs commissioned the construction of the al-Aqsa Mosque…
Paula recently redesigned her blog and this inspired me to do the same. I’ve had the same looks here for 6 months or something and felt that a makeover would be refreshing. Besides, it’s not like I’m redecorating the house or anything – a new look for the blog is just a few clicks away.
A random collection of autumn photos:
«Layers» is the theme for WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge this week. Here’s my entry called Spinning Nude. It’s a composite image with several layers/photos on top of each other. Check out these links to other entries (and to some of you bloggers that link to everything & everyone that post entries for the WPC: watch…
On Friday I posted an entry for the Weekly Photo Challenge in my secondary blog. The quality of the photos were what Senator Clay Davis from the TV-series The Wire would have aptly called: “shameful shit”. Later I realized that I actually do have some interesting alcohol/nargileh/sheesha related photos, so I decided to share them:…
This is my entry for WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge. The theme this week is eerie and I’ve made this composite image out of 4 different shots. http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/11/01/photo-challenge-eerie/
Two versions of two similar photos shot in Krakow, Poland. In the first version I did some split toning and then I individually changed the hue and luminance of the colors.
This is my entry for WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge. The theme this week is «Horizon» and I’ve used a technique called ‘displacement map’ to blend these images together. Both photos are shot in Krakow, Poland. One on the streets of Krakow, while I shot the model in the studio of Pawel Wodnicki.

Another one from my latest studio series. This is Monika, captured in the studio of Pawel Wodnicki.
Here’s a couple of the shots from last weekend with Pamela – an awesome model that’s very comfortable, natural and easy to work with (make sure to check out my two previous posts with Pamela and Natalia). I tried to get a variety of looks on these photos and I like the results.
The Process At first I shot photos of the model, Natalia Kuternoga in the studio of the Polish photographer Jacek Ura who arranged the lights and provided the lightning equipment. After the photo shoot I did some basic adjustments to the photo in Adobe Lightroom, exported the result and opened it in Adobe Photoshop. The first…
I participated in a photo workshop in Krakow this weekend and here I got to work with several top models and photographers from Poland. This particular photo is shot in the studio of Pawel Wodnicki. Pawel was one of the instructors of the photo work shop.

Two versions of the same motive. I like them both.
This was shot last autumn, but now the dark season has returned again. Hopefully the winter will be short and beautiful.

I captured this image on film many years ago. At the time Kristopher Schau went by the artist name Max Cargo.
This is what happens when dad & son are left alone for a few hours: someone ends up with a new tattoo. More on tattoos in the tattoo section of the blog: cardinalguzman.wordpress.com/tattoo More unusual stuff http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/09/06/unusual/
Here’s one of my old photos. Shot with my first DSLR which was Canon EOS 300D. It’s a security check point in Jerusalem. More travels here: http://wheresmybackpack.com/2013/08/30/travel-theme-distance/
Here’s part II of my Street Photo Gallery from Israel. Most of these photos were shot in Jerusalem.
I don’t feel like posting a typical beach photo for this Weekly Photo Challenge. This is from the old catacombs in Ramle, but it all ends up in the sea eventually… Thirsty? You’ll find more water here: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/08/30/weekly-photo-challenge-sea/
