It’s this time of a year when photographers like to look back at what they have accomplished in the year. For the last few years I’ve been posting my favourite photos of Slovenia (2014, 2015, 2018) and this year is no different. Here are some of my personal favourites – I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them!
I always loved to travel and photograph. One of the aspects I like the most is to discover new places and new experiences. As a photographer I sometimes struggle to find suitable places to go. All regular tourist travel guides (Lonely Planet, Bradt Guides etc) or platforms (Tripadvisor, Google maps or Insporock) don’t really offer much value to photographers. Instagram or 500px offer more of inspirational experience but where can a travel photographer find photo spots?
Recently I led a photography workshop in Italian Dolomites with Marc Muench from Muench Workshops. One of the evenings we were treated with most beautiful conditions one can imagine, heavy storm with dark clouds, followed by a rainbow, anticrepuscular rays and amazing sunset colours.
Croatia has incredible natural treasures and luckily many of them are protected as national parks. The oldest and the most visited is Plitvice Lakes National Park (Plitvička jezera) in Lika region somewhere between Dalmatia and Croatia’s mainland.
One of the first things to shoot while nature is changing seasons from winter to spring is wildflowers. I am fortunate to live in Slovenia where there are still many natural habitats, all within an hour drive, usually less. This year I had a good start and photographed some of my favourite wildflowers.
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!
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.
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.
It’s this time of the year again, when we look back what was going on through the year and wonder how quickly it passed.
Like last year (See here) I made a selection of my best photos of Slovenia, this time a bit differently. Hope you will like it and start planning to visit my beautiful country.
Recently I visited a small village Rut on the Southern borders of Triglav National Park. With my family we visited friends and stayed there overnight. All night it was raining heavily. Morning was misty, peaceful and walk around the village was delight.
