Do you like black and white photography?

This short article is not intended for analog enthusiasts who master the perfectly “wet” path of creating black and white photography. It is intended for owners of digital SLR cameras who are just discovering the magic of black and white photos. If you still feel that your black and white photo is missing something, I can definitely recommend the Silver Efex Pro program from Nik Collection. The program can beautifully simulate the use of basic color filters. It has several basic presets in its libraries in which you will see what your black and white photo can look like. The program is comparable in price to the price of one high-quality color filter. I personally follow the only rule that my classmate’s father, Mr. Daněk, told me. The rule is: black and white photography has no rules. With one exception and that is composition. You don’t have to wait for the gold or blue hour when taking black and white photos. You just take a camera and take pictures.

Admiral …

After a long time, I received a copy of the newspaper. One worse news than another … I thought about the content of the news for a while, and then I built a paper boat out of the bad news, which I let float down the river as a child. Every fleet should have an admiral. I took advantage of the moment when a butterfly, admiral butterfly (Vanessa atalanta Linné ) , landed on the sidewalk. He had no objection to my suggestions …. probably. To be silent is to agree. So I have my own fleet and admiral. I’m freaking out …but fun is simply needed! 😁📷

flash….

I use photo flashes and studio lights a lot. But most often I use a small but powerful hand flashlight. It is great, for example, for photographing portraits in the backlight It is waterproof, fits in your pocket and, if necessary, often helps not only when taking photos.

sometimes …

the photo works and sometimes it fails. Today is one of those days when one should not leave the house. It’s cold and it’s raining a lot. As I get used to the intensity of the rain, the rain intensifies. So I quickly took a few remaining shots of the film and went to develope it. Even when pulling the film cassette out of the camera, I managed (thanks to the orthosis on my left hand) to somehow insert my finger through the lamellae of the camera shutter. One by one I pushed back there and it looks like everything is working as it should. After developing the film, I found out that a few images on the negative are scratched (probably due to the orthosis on the left hand again). I decided to correct one of these images in PS and I even colored him. This is not an art. I only regret any images that are unusable.

black hole sun …

Soundgarden – Black hole sun

In my eyes
Indisposed
In disguises no one knows
Hides the face
Lies the snake
And the sun in my disgrace
Boiling heat
Summer stench
Neath the black, the sky looks dead
Call my name
Through the cream
And I’ll hear you scream again
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come
Won’t you come
Stuttering
Cold and damp
Steal the warm wind, tired friend
Times are gone
For honest men
Sometimes, far too long for snakes
In my shoes
Walking sleep
In my youth, I pray to keep
Heaven send
Hell away
No one sings like you anymore
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come? (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Hang my head
Drown my fear
Till you all just disappear
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain?
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come
Won’t you come

when the time comes…

Sometimes we say it happened at the right time, or it happened at the wrong times, or we don’t have time. Sometimes we make time. And we’ll give it some time. Although time is just a math tool. The universe does not need time to exist. When it is, it will be. This is exactly how the universe works. I hope I didn’t stole too much of your time with this thought.

The father accompanies the son ..

Like the dad in the opening photo, I accompanied my son to the graduation exam yesterday, which he passed without any problems. Before he finished the exam, I had a few hours to find the right light. My son was definitely more successful at the test yesterday than I was at the photo shoot…

over 9,000 great photos…

in six minutes and 23 seconds can be seen in Metallica’s Unforgiven video clip. Every frame of the film can be considered a great photo. So today I tried to photograph a similar style with filters of all colors. Black and white, of course.

Metallica – Unforgiven

New blood joins this Earth
And quickly he’s subdued
Through constant pained disgrace
The young boy learns their rules
With time the child draws in
This whipping boy done wrong
Deprived of all his thoughts
The young man struggles on and on, he’s known
Ooh, a vow unto his own
That never from this day
His will they’ll take away
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never be
Never see
Won’t see what might have been
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven
They dedicate their lives
To running all of his
He tries to please them all
This bitter man he is
Throughout his life the same
He’s battled constantly
This fight he cannot win
A tired man they see no longer cares
The old man then prepares
To die regretfully
That old man here is me
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never be
Never see
Won’t see what might have been
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never be
Never see
Won’t see what might have been
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven
Oh, oh, oh
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven
You labeled me
I’ll label you
So I dub thee unforgiven
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven
You labeled me
I’ll label you
So I dub thee unforgiven
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven

Blaze of glory ….

inpired by Bon Jovi – Blaze of glory

Blaze of Glory

I wake up in the morning
And I raise my weary head
I got an old coat for a pillow
And the earth was last night’s bed
I don’t know where I’m goin’
Only God knows where I’ve been
I’m a devil on the run
A six gun lover
A candle in the wind, yeah
You’re brought into this world
But they say you’re born in sin
Well at least they’ve given me something
I didn’t have to steal or have to win
Well, they tell me that I’m wanted
Yeah I’m a wanted man
I’m colt in your stable
I’m what Cain was to Able
Mister catch me if you can
I’m goin’ down in a blaze of glory
Take me now but know the truth
I’m goin’ down in a blaze of glory
Lord I never drew first
But I drew first blood
I’m no one’s son
Call me young gun
You ask about my conscience
And I offer you my soul
You ask if I’ll grow to be a wise man
Well I ask if I’ll grow old
You ask me if I known love
And what it’s like to sing songs in the rain
Well, I’ve seen love come
I’ve seen it shot down
I’ve seen it die in vain
Shot down in a blaze of glory
Take me now but know the truth
But I’m going down in a blaze of glory
Lord, I never drew first
But I drew first blood
I’m a devil’s son
Call me young gun
Each night I go to bed
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
No, I ain’t lookin’ for forgiveness
But before I’m six foot deep
Lord, I got to ask a favor
And I’ll hope you’ll understand
‘Cause I’ve lived life to the fullest
Let this boy die like a man
Starin’ down the bullet
Let me make my final stand
Shot down in a blaze of glory
Take me now but know the truth
I’m going down in a blaze of glory
Lord, I never drew first
But, I drew first blood
I’m no one’s son
Call me young gun
I’m the young gun
Young gun, yea eee yea
Young gun
