About my calendars

By the end of the last year I had made several calendars with my photographs. In my opinion they turned out to be quite qood, especially considering that they depict our native city – Nizhny Novgorod. We left one of them for ourselves and now it decorates our hallway. Like that.

On recent affairs

I completely gave up on this blog. Time that could have been used for publishing something or just post processing of new pictures vanishes treacherously. I suppose it’s all because of my stupid perfectionism, or probably a simple laziness. But I’m sure I’ll overcome that, seen it all. Anyway, what really pleases me is that we’re having great weekends in the village this summer.

The exhibition “Native Nature”

I can’t help holding back that my photograph of the Amur leopard won the first place in the inter-regional contest “Native Nature” as the best portrait of an animal, and thereby sneaked into an exhibition in Russian museum of photography (Nizhny Novgorod, Piskunova st., 9a).

The exhibition will be opened till November, 10th, and a ticket costs 120 rubles (60 rubles for students and pensioners), but today, November 4th is the National Unity Day, thus the museum will be opened for everyone free of charge (from 11:00 to 17:00), so if you’re interested in wildlife photography or would like to see some large good-looking prints you might consider going.

David duChemin’s “TEN” is now free

I love to read books. A good book is one of the easiest ways to learn something, or more precisely, to find a direction you have to follow to learn something. About a month ago I found in RSS feed that David duChemin made ​​his book “TEN ways to improve your craft without buying gear” free, which was nice to see, because I wanted to read it, but was stopped by a price – my memories of starvation childhood didn’t allow me to spend $5 for a book of 20 pages… I’m only kidding, it was my innate stinginess, that was stopping me. Anyway, I downloaded the book right away, but didn’t have time to read it carefully until recently. But now I’ve finished, and from this moment I will probably start recommending it to everyone, as it is an excellent book for those who would like their photographs to become better.

About social buttons and Flickr! map

I’m happy to tell you that we added crossposting functionality to this blog – note pretty social buttons on the sidebar. So from this moment every post will be automatically published to those public websites, which I also use. That will make it possible to subscribe to updates of this blog not only via RSS, but also using built-in services of these websites. Another piece of news is that my photographs could now be found on the Flickr! map. I hope it will be interesting to explore the world map and find where particular photos were taken.
