Some piece of advise...

Hello my dear journal visitor!

I have a dilema. Just got paid for some royalties from my stock photography activity and I already decided that I would invest it in buying some gear. It makes all the sense because I have nearly no gear at all.

Here’s what I have:

  • Aluminium tripod without spirit level;
  • A dark CPL filter;
  • Canon EOS 550D;
  • 18-55mm Lens;
  • 32Gb memory card;

The question now is… What shoulkd I buy? There is so much to buy, but where to start?? What would you have me buying first? A big stoper? A 13mm lens? A macro lens? New tripod with a spirit level? ND filter?? Some lights? A remote control?? A sound trigger?? Something else???

You can give a quick look at my profile and see what’s my photography style to have a better idea of what kind of advise you could give me. …

Making a stand...

There are times in one’s life where we have to make a stand and define where we are. To me, this is one of those moments. I am so sick and tired of people that spoil RB! I am talking about people who tend to act like if this is their own kindgom or mafia, and everyone has to play by their rules… It’s a very childish and anoying atiutude! Recently came out a post on the group “The World As We See It , or as we missed it” on which one of the hosts call pathetic to users (like me) that for any reason don’t go around commenting other’s works. Therefore – according to his law – he would be giving “orders” to the other hosts not to feature works from people who don’t comment on other people’s works.

This made my lid j

From now on I am a HOST!

Fresh news everyone!

From this day on I will be hosting the group Scenic Scandinavia. It is a group that has been dead for years… I will try to bring it back to life now, and hopefully all will go well!

If you have photos from Denmark, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Faroe Islands, Iceland and/or Greenlad, please feel free to join my group!

I am feeling excited about this… :)
