Personal favourite photos of Slovenia 2018

Last year was very productive for me in terms of photography. Beside many workshops and outings with friends I went out on my own a lot and this year also with a drone.

Because of injuries and lack of time I had to put mountaineering on a side track. Hopefully more of high altitudes in 2019!

Unlike last years, when I posted most popular photos of the year, I am posting my personal favourites of Slovenia. Because of this I would appreciate your comments even more. Thank you and I hope you enjoy the photos!

Photographer’s guide to purchasing DJI Inspire 2 and Zenmuse X7

After my last article reviewing the quality of still images of Zenmuse X7 camera many people were asking me questions about buying this setup.

Buying the Inspire 2 and Zenmuse x7 camera is a huge investment. While smaller consumer drone like Mavic Pro or Phantom 4 will cost you between 1,300€-2,000€, the I2+ZX7 system can easily cost 10-times more.

DJI Zenmuse x7 — A photographer’s first impressions

This review focuses on photographer’s perspective, with sample still images rather than video. At the bottom there is a link to full size, unedited RAW files you can download and review yourself.

As a landscape photographer I always look for vantage points, elevated views, try to avoid those branches (or power lines) getting into the frame. I also love aerial photography but haven’t done it much for two reasons, costs and the fact that arranging the flight is not really straight-forward.

Croatia a little bit differently

A few days ago we finished a photography tour to Croatia. May is wonderful time to be there and we also had great photography opportunities. The group was wonderful, we had lots of fun and also lots of wine – I guess these two go well together. This was also my first time to work with Dan and Tanya, the owners of Natural Exposures photography tours. They are both very professional, well organized and above all very nice people. They run tours all around the world, focusing on nature ad wildlife and I do recommend them from my heart!

Here are a few photos from the tour – this time no classic shots or grand scenery that you see in promotional publications all the time.

Wonderful spring in Goriska Brda

Couple of weeks ago I spend three days in Goriška Brda with my family. It was the cherry blossom season and Brda region has the best cherries in Slovenia. We stayed at Kabaj Morel winery, where they make some of the world’s best wines, not to mention wonderful home cooked food! During the day we were visiting Brda’s towns, Šmartno, Kojsko, Dobrovo, the ruined village of Slapnik and the Sabotin peak.  The cherry blossoms were at their peak and I spent both evenings and mornings pursuing photography.

Festive Ljubljana in photos

Ljubljana, my hometown is a wonderful city. I really enjoy going to the Old town, it is about 20 min walk from my home. Usually the city is the most pleasant during the Summer season, somewhere between May till end of September, when the streets of old town are the liveliest. But one of the best times to visit the city is in December, when the so called “Merry December” festivities take place. The old town is beautifully  decorated and there are all sorts of stands selling everything from mulled wine to Christmas presents.

This year I decided to photograph the old town “properly”. To get these shots I was out with my camera four mornings and four evenings I didn’t count the mulled wine… It was fun, seeing my town as a tourist, trying to get the best shots with new angles and not to repeat what others have done before. I also met a lot of friends which was very cool.   Festive Ljubljana

21 best photos of Slovenia in 2014

The year is coming to and end and it’s time to reflect on all the photos taken in 2014. It was a very productive year for me and it was hard to select 21 best shots of the season. The focus is on landscapes, rural scenes and nature with one exception of the shot from Ljubljana, my hometown.
