Some new photos as promised.
13.02.2014: Exams are almost over, so there will be time again to take some more photos in the future. You can follow my page on FB as well www.facebook.com/LukaRPhotogra…
18.01.2014: let the studying commence!
11.01.2014: Got ill, have to take antibiotics for the first time.
01.01.2014: Happy New Year! Sometimes it is better to leave the camera at home to fully enjoy the celebration.
24.12.2013:These last months have been crazy with everything going on. Now there is finally some time for a moment's rest. When I look back, this was quite an important year for me. My life has changed this year in so many ways, mostly for the better. I would once again like to express my thanks to everyone who has been supporting me and my work though all this time (it has been 4 years since I picked up photography as my hobby) and I hope you all have nice holidays and spend it with the people dearest to you.
'Christmas is not about one day every year. One evening. Not about gifts. Not about presents.
Christmas is a way of life - every day, every moment - showing compassion to people who need it,
reaching out to the people who have lost their way.
That is Christmas.'
15.12.2013: It was chess again this weekend. We played in the highest league in our country and placed 4th(out of 9 teams)!!
I haven't had time to read through all of your comments, I will when I find the time.
With best regards, Luka
08.12.2013: People change. In the end, what really matters is you have stayed true to yourself and what you have always believed in.
07.12.2013: Days have been passing by so quickly. Good days. Too short days. Hope you have a great last month of the year, everyone who have been reading this.
01.12.2013: Chess really is a miniature of life. I am falling in love with it over and over again. It's simply a great game. I hope to continue playing it for a long time.
22.11.2013: Time for some more chess, not a great start, yet I hope the continuation will be better.
14.11.2013: Hvala prav vsakemu za nenadejana presenečenja in lepe misli. I would like to thank each and everyone of you for the unexpected surprises and well-wishing thoughts. luka567.deviantart.com/art/We-…
07.11.2013: Been really busy lately, so I haven't quite had all the time I would like to take many photos. It will soon be 4 years (in about a month) since I've taken up photography as a hobby. Hopefully I will continue doing this for quite some time. Have a nice day/evening, wherever in the world you are reading this from.
03.11.2013: Third place in a slow chess tournament (up to 2200 ELO rating). Not bad
01.11.2013: Like it was yesterday - www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzJBGd…
26.10.2013: Uploaded the 2000th deviation on DA. To celebrate this, I can send you a photo from my gallery if you desire any. Send me a note
.25.10.2013: Tribute to the most awesome cat that has ever lived. luka567.deviantart.com/art/Dan…
22.10.2013: Sense of freedom, yet still you are not free to do what you want. A person cannot help but to feel helpless sometimes. The irony is you get a pool of inspiration from such a state of mind.
18.10.2013: Let the fun begin this weekend. Also hoping to take some new nice photos ^^.
14.10.2013: It's really not about praise, yet sometimes it does feel nice to get some credit for what you do. Even a small nice word can do miracles .
06.10.2013: I've noticed quite some people have read this journal of mine (more than 2000 views). I thank you all for reading, I try not to make it too personal,(although, many times, I know, it is) and include only the most exciting things (which may not even seem exciting to someone who reads them). I will probably be adding less photos during the year again, as studies have begun again. And also even if it may seem I spend a lot of time taking photos, I also do many other things. So, be patient when waiting for new work, I can promise some more portraits in the near future. Anyway, have a nice day, everyone who reads this.
02.10.2013: Got mentioned in the media for the first time as a photographer! www.24ur.com/obeta-se-nam-prav…
30.09.2013: Finally, going back to Ljubljana tonight. It's going to be a great year, I can feel it!
What I love most about photography - even when there is no light to be seen, you are always able to take a photo, whereas in life you are often left with no solution to the abscence of light.'15.09.2013 : Yesterday I attended a relative's wedding. I had the chance to take photos of such an event for the first time. It was nice, it's really important to capture the moment and predict the happening in advance to be in the right place. That I would have to work on, should I ever get such a chance again. 11.09.2013. Sometimes, unforseen turns can lead you to a better way ahead, even if a part of it is harsh and hardly walkable. 08.09.2013 - at a crossroads. I have never thought that no longer having a person that encourages you and supports your work no matter what, would have such an affect on my photos. I have been taking photos for almost 4 years now, but still, it feels like a piece of the puzzle to be completed is missing somehow. Anyhow.. While I am very much content with the upgraded gear of late, I am very much in search for my own style of expression. Generally I do not like to share my thoughts, but this is bugging me a bit. I've always been trying to be universal - I like to take photos of everything and anything that seems interesting to me. Yet it seems to me it may be a bit hard to improve in such a way. Lately I've been taking a bit more of portraits (of friends) and I've realised how hard it is to portray a person. Sure, easy to take a snapshot.. but if you want something more.. I also do not like posed photos that much, I prefer spontaneous moments. So these two things kind of work against each other.. but nevertheless I like taking portraits very much. And nature. I love nature. That is why macro photography is my all-time favourite category. Yet there is still a lot of room to improve.. so I am wondering.. should I work more on portraits and macro and neglect the other genres a bit and try to master those two? I know it is my decision to make, but some kind of advice would be very welcome. Feel free to leave a comment.
03.09.2013: Got myself a used Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 for a fantastic price
. Now my kit of lens I wanted to have (for my budget) is complete
. Have a great day people!
30.08.2013: It is done, it is done! No more studying till October. Some work in September and also hopefully some time to take more photos and exploit the upgraded gear of mine. Should be fun.
29.08.2013: Yes, yes, yes. The happiest day in months! Last part of the exam tomorrow. And also, some people's voices are simply great to listen to, no matter the circumstances!!! Have a great day people! 23.08.2013: Latest update: got myself a Canon EF 50 mm f/1.4 lens. The price of a new one was so tempting that I couldn't resist it (100€ lower than usual). I look forward to taking some portraits with it, yet now it's studying time . Take care, everyone!
18.08.2013: 16 000 page views and 400 watchers!! Thank you very much, it's very appreciated! I've had the luck to go to the mountains, to the seaside and perhaps I'll go somewhere else. I realise not everyone has such a chance and I am greatful for it a lot.I've discovered a nice page that holds contests - check it out, also my profile there - www.viewbug.com/member/luka56722.07.2013: I've decided to buy a Tamron 90 mm f/2.8 VC USD Macro lens. I haven't tested it out yet much, but I am planning to. Expect some more macro photos in near future .
P.P.S.: Also, my FB page is back - www.facebook.com/LukaRPhotogra…
P.P.P.S.: If there is someone interesting in posing, we can come to an arrangement - right now I don't have time, but soon in the future. Send me a note ( you can send it on my FB page if you don't have DA)
