My workflow is 90% Adobe Lightroom, with complex layering done in Photoshop, HDR in Photomatix Pro, and custom styling in Nik Collection or ON1 Effects
IN MY BAG
I am not a big believer that expensive advanced equipment makes one a better photographer. I use Nikon D5100 with universal 18-200mm Nikkor lenses…
From well-known photographers – and travelers – to online stores and magazines, there is a wealth of resources online to help improve your photography
is the world
and a camera
I am a husband, a father, and a guy with a day job, who loves to travel and loves to bring back home photographic memories.
I do not seek awards or acclaim for my photography. My photos are windows into my travel memories - or postcards from the past, if you will. I shoot in RAW and swear by post-processing, but my life is all too busy to painstakingly obsess over perfecting every shot.
In the end, it is more about the place than about the shot for me. I adore photos that recall smells, sounds, and of course sights of places I visited. If I manage to combine a strong sense of place with a good artistic impression, it gives me most satisfaction.
I suspect we have a lot in common, so make yourself at home and hopefully you will find something useful here. Don't hesitate to drop me a line - I'd love to hear from you!
I have lived in North America as well as both Eastern and Western Europe, and have traveled to nearly 40 countries (and counting)
I am fluent in English and Russian, conversationally proficient in Italian and French, and have survival skills in a few other languages
I have intermediate-to-advanced skills with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, and functional familiarity with a host of photo-processing tools
My count of visited sites on the UNESCO list is approaching a hundred and it has every chance to grow in the coming years
