Exhibition tonight at 8:30pm

Everything is set to go so I’m using this opportunity to call all of you who are somewhere near to come tonight to Prijedor city Gallery 96. Opening is set for 8:30 pm and exhibition will last until 25th of August.

Final City Portrait

This is my first group portrait in City Portraits series and in the same time last one in the same series. On the picture is DUU MANIFEST.

Once again, exhibition will take place in Prijedor city Gallery 96 on 30th of July 2010 and will last for a month. So, wherever you are, I believe you will find time to come to see it.

If you are interested in technical stuff about the photo, here it is:

This is not composite photo. It is one exposure of 61 sec. where I was running around all these people, lighting them with two small strobes from my hand (why two strobes? – I used them alternately because of the charging time).   F stop was 8 because I find it ideal for the power of my strobes but also good enough for some decent depth of field.

City portraits Exhibition

I’m proud to announce an exhibition of my series of City portraits that will take place on 30th of July in Prijedor city Gallery 96. Opening ceremony is planed for 20:30 h, so I’m inviting all of you (no matter if you are near or far away) to come. I would like to thank DUU”Manifest” (Association of urban artists) who helped me to organize it.

I’ll give you more information about all details in next few days. Day after the opening, I’ll present a simple workshop on basic photographic technique that is free to attend (basic photographing technique, composition, light, etc.)

S ponosom želim da objavim moju narednu izložbu serije “City portraits” koja će biti otvorena od 30. jula u gradu Prijedoru u Gallery 96. Izložba će biti otvorena mjesec dana a dan nakon otvaranja održaću radionicu na temu osnovnih tehnika fotografisanja, kompozicije, svjetla… Ulaz je slobodan i svi zainteresovani su dobrodošli.

DUU”Manifest” je zaslužan za organizaciju ove izložbe i ovim putem im se zahvaljujem.

Više detalja slijedi u narednim danima.

City portrait #9 – Tihomir Ilijašević


Tihomir Ilijašević – artist, painter, director of city gallery, Gallery 96 in Prijedor.
He is also a caricaturist and I asked him to draw himself with light as a contrast to real him. This kind of shooting is based on many tries and many mistakes. This particular picture is taken in 42 seconds and f stop was 8.
My advice to all of you who will try light drawing on your pictures is to have some kind of canvas behind camera (a wall, or blank sheet, or a truck 🙂 ) because it will be much easier to draw when you can see some of light trail.
Here are some tryouts:

B5 workshop in Prijedor’s Gallery 96

b5Borut Peterlin, great Slovenian photographer shared his knowledge today at Prijedor’s Gallery 96. Spoke about his work, about common and also creative usage of light (ambient and additional), did few nice portraits. Atmosphere was very relax and hopefully this was just first in a row of workshops where people from this small town on hilly Balkans can meet world artists and have a chance to speak with them.
