Sleeklens Landscape Photoshop Actions Review

February 9th, 2017|Categories: review|

Introduction and Pricing Recently I was approached by Jane from Sleeklens to review their Landscape Adventure Workflow actions for Photoshop and so here's the review. You can get the actions here: https://sleeklens.com/product/landscape-adventure-photoshop-actions/ The regular price is 120 USD although at the time of writing the actions are on extra-sale and you can get them for 49 USD instead. Actions should work both in Photoshop CC and Photoshop Elements. Using the actions First of all, installing the actions was super easy. The actions are divided into several categories which are useful in landscape photography editing workflow. From basic adjustments like Exposure, Base, Tone, Temperature to ones that change the look of the image significantly - Specialty (which contains a few special effects e.g. "Dreamy Landscape" or "Sunset Flare") and All in One category that applies certain look [...]

Colors of Cuba

February 7th, 2017|Categories: cuba|

Slightly different post today as it will contain several images instead of one as usually. Cuba (especially Havana but not only) is full of wonderful colors, textures and amazing detail virtually wherever you look. From facades of the old colonial buildings, to fruit sold by street merchant to vintage cars. And in this post I will show several examples of them found in various Cuban cities, mainly in Trinidad and Havana. Even though the images are something different from my usual work, I hope you will enjoy them too.

Morning Light from Pico do Arieiro

February 3rd, 2017|Categories: madeira|

Today I would like to share with you image I took in the summer last year in the beautiful island of Madeira. This one was taken from top of Pico do Arieiro mountain at sunrise and it features some gorgeous golden light. If you're travelling to Madeira any time soon, make sure to read my best photo spots in Madeira, to get better idea what you can photograph there. On a slightly unrelated topic, I made another change to this blog, very subtle this time. From now on when you click on the photo in the post, it will redirect you to my SmugMug account where you will be able to see the photo in bigger size (as well as purchase it as print if [...]

Kegon Falls in Japan

January 31st, 2017|Categories: Japan|

I'm still very busy and haven't taken any photo this year yet. However, I still have plenty of nice images from my last year trips and today I would like to share one of them. It shows amazing Kegon Falls in the Nikko area in Japan. Also, in the last few days I slightly modified the layout of the blog. Also further to your comments (both here on the blog, Facebook and sent by email) I will be making additional adjustments to the blog layout to make it simpler to navigate as some of you pointed out that navigation right now is quite complex. Taking photo and post-processing As I wanted water to be smooth I decided to use long exposure. As [...]

Tips on chasing Sakura (Cherry Blossoms) in Japan

January 26th, 2017|Categories: Japan, travel guide|

At the same time last year I started preparing for my Japan trip in March - April later that year. One of the main goals of the trip was to see beautiful phenomenon known as sakura or cherry blossoms. Cherry blossoms are found in many countries of the world but only Japan is so crazy about them - there are thousands of thousands of trees around the country, there are sakura parties (known as hanami), there are sakura-flavored icecream, sakura Coca Cola. Even one of the shinkansen trains is called sakura. Yes, cherry trees are important for Japan. As planning trip for the sakura might be a bit difficult, here are some tips on how to increase your chances of photographing and seeing this beautiful phenomenon. BTW if you're interested in [...]

New Layout on the Blog

January 18th, 2017|Categories: blog|

If you're frequent visitor to this blog, then you probably noticed that yesterday I changed layout of the blog completely. Especially I introduced new homepage, while the blog is available here. More changes are coming in the next few days (mainly to simplify a few sections of the blog, clean the fonts, improve sections spacing, etc.) but I'm already interested in hearing your opinions. Do you like the changes? Or maybe you preferred the old look? Also it's possible that some functionality was broken due to the changes I did. So I'd really appreciate it if you could let me know about any link or feature of the blog that doesn't work anymore.
