Hello fellow photographers! You may have already noticed this, maybe not -… . It seems you can get DXO OPTICSPRO 9
 for free. An interesting alternative to Adobe Lightroom I would say (if your camera is supported in this version).

Today was the day a lot of photographers were waiting for - the announcement of the new Canon 5D, the fourth of its line, the Mark IV. The camera does look amazing to me by its features, yet the price is simply a no go for me at the moment (about 4100€ here in Europe). So the 5D III will have to suffice for a bit longer, I've begun to appreciate it more in more to what it can do in the field. So Mark III it remains. 


That really took some time, going through more than 600 notifications! :D Thank you guys (and girls, of course) for all the support. You are amazing. And once again you are welcome to follow me on my FB page -…, Thank you! 



Exam time is almost over. Finally! Some more time to take photos after the last exam in 2 weeks. And to relax a bit after a stressful year. Have a great time everyone



Spring has finally arrived! 




To infinity and beyond ... 


Če koga morda zanima, prodam:

It's been about 6 years since I've taken up photography. In all that time there is probably one subject I've taken the most photos of. Timi. I'm dedicating this post to him. The first photo is from December 2009 and the second one from December 2015.


Če slučajno kdo spremlja bolj FB, je tule ena 'nagradna igra' ki jo organiziram. Morda bi koga znalo zanimati.…

And now for some photos as usually: 


Hello! I would like to thank you all for your Birthday wishes. I had a nice one. Also some new photos from the last journal update. 




I am participating in a competition at viewbug - I would greatly appreciate if you voted for my submission, if you like it. Thank you and have a nice day!…


Autumn has arrived . The days are geting shorter. It's getting colder. 




Let me invite you all to my FB page…, my Flickr account… Youtube channel…. I am sure you will find something to your liking over there.

With best regards, Luka DeviantArt 



Exam time's finally over (for now). Some time finally to do everything. And relax. And take some more photos. 


Exam time almost over. Holidays are near. 


The semester is over, so as always it's time for exams :D. Statistical thermodynamics, organic chemistry, physical chemistry and such things. So there will be a little less time than usual to take and upload photos. 


Getting some more feedback on my photography than usually. That is very appreciated. A little of extra motivation does not hurt at all. Take care everyone... and now the visual part:


More than 11 000 views of this journal! Thank you for following it! =)


Finally some holidays. And among other things some more time to take photos and also arrange the archive/backup. Have a nice Sunday! 


Happy Easter everybody! 


There was a partial solar eclipse today here in Slovenia (as also in other parts of Europe). I still remember the total solar eclipse when I was a child, the land became darker for few moments. A wonderful sight. 




How time flies by - the first semester of my Master's study of chemistry is almost over, the second one starts in a week. 


I'm taking a part in a competition on the following link..… I would be quite grateful if you voted for me. You have to be logged in through Facebook though. You can vote once a day. Thank you! It's the photo of a duck on a frozen lake 

And now for some other photos. 

With best regards, Luka






Some new photographs of birds. I used the Canon EF 200 mm f2.8 L USM II lens, it has a bit short reach for birding on a full frame camera, so the photos are quite heavily cropped.


And as I cannot help myself ... one more - macro shot. 



Some new photographs, taken with my new toy :D


New year, new photographs.


I would like to wish all of you a happy and prosperous New Year. Also I would like to thank all of you for being a part of my world of photography. It's been an amazing 2014! 
Happy New Year!


I wish you all a merry Christmas! 





Today is an exciting day for me as a member of deviantart. I got my first Daily Deviation :D. It's the photo of a spiral staircase, located in a building called Nebotičnik in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Thank you very much for choosing this photograph! 

Also some more photos taken since my latest journal update.




Looking forward to using a new wide angle lens - the Canon EF-S 10-18 mm f4,5-5,6 IS STM. The IS comes in quite handy as far as I have tested it so far. 


You can also follow my work on FB… and Flickr



Some new photos. 


Hello everyone, it's been a while since I've updated this journal. I've been really busy in the last month, successfully finishing my Bachelor studies of chemistry. Now it's time to take some more time off (hopefully also taking more photos with the Canon 7D I bought myself to pursue animal/wildlife photography). So, here are some images to look at. Hope you enjoy them,

With best regards, Luka

I am wondering, what has happened to Deviantart? The quality of photos has fallen quite dramatically. And of course most of the attention goes to nude portraits.. I believe they should be done with a good taste which is not what can be seen a lot of times. Not every nude photo is art. What do you think on this matter?

Please do check out my FB page if you haven't yet. Have a great day!…

I am Luka, a student of chemistry. I was born in 1991 in Novo mesto, Slovenia. In December 2009 I bought my first DSLR camera. Since then a camera has become my inseparable companion.
Photography is one of my ways of expressing my view of the world and it is one of my biggest passions. Feel free to send me a message, if you have some ideas that could come to life.

Have a pleasant day!

Hi! I've been away from DA for a few years and was scanning through everyone I've been watching all these years, when I came to your page. 
You really are an amazing photographer and I'd like to say that I'm absolutely impressed by how differently you show common things of everyday's life in each photo. Undoubtedly you have an incredible talent, so keep up the good work, hope it will become more and more appreciated.
luka567 Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2017  Hobbyist Photographer
Hello! I have wondered where you have disappeared all of the sudden. I hope you are well! Thank you very much  for your very kind words. I have had ups and downs in my photography, still searching myself a bit. I am not sure about the talent part, yet I simply enjoy doing what I do. I believe that is the most important thing. =)
