apple, blurry images, garden tree
I’ve been pretty quiet recently. This is because of the amount of work… Hopefully soon I’ll have more time to focus on my website. Apples in the garden especially during the autumn period look so beautifully. Those changes colours and with the good light, look stunning! We keep them for birds – mainly blue birds love them so much. I for instance, I like their black spots. On the pictures spots add up something more. I see them as a part of an art, done by the nature. Actually, I’m working on a project – portraits of very interesting people. I’m not going to share details as yet, but keep your ears tuned for news. Sometime soon I’m going to publish some more pictures from my darkroom. I recently recreated darkroom in my new house, so it’s been exiting period! On the other hand it is never ending story – putting stuff, moving things, tests and then again… I want to change it back like it was before 😉 If anyone of you has an instruction for a darkroom timer Hauck TCM 80 (model with the buttons), I’ll appreciate for a link or a copy! I bought one from MrCad […]

white Lilly, Kodak tri-x 400; darkroom print; fine art print
So, again I went into darkroom to make new prints from my darkroom.As you know, after lessons at Adrian’s workshop I’ve learned a lot of new useful ‘tricks’ which helps with obtaining good results. Of course, most important is rather this what is on the picture and not the print itself but I think I have this what’s interesting to me so I’m in good place! It is hard to scan on home scanner prints with good enough quality to show you how those look like in reality but even though, if you’re slightly more experienced than new-comer into darkroom world, you’ll catch what I’m talking about. I have definitely improved my skills I think.   Some of my new prints I’m trying to ‘modify’ by burning particular areas to obtain specific effect. Not always it is easy and I can’t say I’ve managed to obtain this what I needed. In this occasion I tried to simulate that old boat/ship is emerging from the DARKNESS, but this what I’m getting isn’t quite this what I need. See below….   I like the colour of Ilford Galerie paper and its contrast. I have learned from Adrian that having good quality water, […]

Darkroom workshop; Adrian Ensor
Darkroom workshop with Adrian Ensor Recently my girlfriend announced me that for my birthday gift she prepared something special! Of course it didn’t take me long to pull out what’s that from her 🙂 It turned out it was a workshop with one of the greatest darkroom printers and also great photographers, I mean with Adrian Ensor here in London! You can image how happy I was. I’ve been waiting long two weeks for that day. I knew I had just 8hrs to learn as much as I can during this time. Obviously I need to prepare questions to outstanding things which no one else was able to give an answer. I thought to myself that it is great occasion to learn lots of things which I’ve never been good with.  My list consisted: Better dogging and burning How to better control contrast Flattening the final prints  And all other small details which by observation I can learn Finally that day came! We’ve arrived at agreed 10AM on Saturday 4th of August. Adrian has been waiting for us already. We drank a cup of coffee and we’ve been talking about the plan for a day, ideas and of course we were […]

Focomat IIc and De Vere 705 enalrger, darkroom printing
How to print in a darkroom This I’ll learn from my friend Roy, who is a darkroom printer from London. Working with Roy, I can learn tons of things which I wouldn’t be able to learn from books, conversations with other amateurs, internet articles or blogs. This is amazing to me and also it is great addition to our friendship! We’ll be working together on materials which I hope we will be able to produce to the highest level. Where sparkling highlights will be signing and shadows will be warm and full of details. Last Saturday we’ve been printing for our first client – Janie who brought her old and never printed negative film. This film has been sitting in a drawer for around 50 years. On that day it has been for the first time, put into Roy’s De Vere 705s enlarger. As a matter of learning we’ve been learning how to properly get good contrast keeping details in shadows and clean fully detailed highlights. Roy showed me how to properly dodge the print. I think I need to exercise on this as my dodging is really poor… I’ve never been good on that so I always wanted to avoid […]

This year, similarly as it’s being happening for many years before, another Notting Hill Carnival starts today. This event has its own long history. Despite voices that place hasn’t been chosen properly and should be moved to the different location, all actions takes place here yet.  Notting Hill Carnival 2017 is a bit worrying to all local businesses as during celebrations many things usually happens. Nearly every year someone is injured, some cars disappears. And it is nothing unusual during such events. Especially businesses but also people who live here, wants to feel a bit more secure. All of them tries to secure their offices, dwells and houses. Lots of Police is visible on the Notting Hill Gate street since early morning and even before – during the night yet.  To avoid terrorist attacks, Police is closing local traffic by building very strong fences/barriers which will stop even very heavy lorries which potentially could try to ram into the crowds. Here you can find how Notting Hill looks like now.   ” order_by=”sortorder” order_direction=”ASC” returns=”included” maximum_entity_count=”500″]

Grenfell tower fire
Notting Hill Grenfell tower fire Grenfell tower fire – during the night on 14-15 June 2017 the 24 storey building had gone in fire. Unfortunately, I’ve seen that building in flames….It’s impossible to imagine how can you feel in such circumstances. The reason most likely was caused by the ignition which fired the polystyrene cladding. The cladding type was flammable and was just slightly cheaper – ca £2 per 1 square meter than not flammable version. According to the London Police along with Kensington & Chelsea borough, there’s still a hope that number of those whose died won’t be 3 digit number.  Below you can see how LFB (London Fire Brigade) worked to cope with that situation. Despite overall sad mood around this case, firefighters tried to not be sad or depressed.  Local authorities have said they’ll will do their best to be sure that “There won’t be any stone left unturned” in terms of finding missing people whose left in the building. Let’s have a hope after this incident we all have learnt lesson and any similar tragedy won’t happen again in the future. ” slug=”Grenfell-tower-fire” order_by=”sortorder” order_direction=”ASC” returns=”included” maximum_entity_count=”500″]

Hyde Park speaker
Hyde Park Corner We have new year but this part of British capital is very lively, as usual. This time I’m with a man which speech is about Jesus and his role in our lives and current world. Indeed it’s hard to not agree with him and his ideas. He is very active in his approach how to persuade to others his opinions.   Please don’t think …he doesn’t know what he’s talking about! That man is every good observer and he also advised to me, what Jesus thinks about photography. Please don’t think, I’m mocking up from him but I really appreciate his open-minded approach to the surrounding world. From visual point of view, that man is interesting but also his personality makes this town very colourful. I don’t have to agree with all his opinions but I do not judge his opinions as well. That’s one and only place in the world where everyone can perform a speech about anything he/she wants.     Hyde Park Corner Speaker …is very lively man. He tries to persuade all his opinions to everyone who came to this place tempted by the gathered crowd.   Summing up, if you’re looking for […]

London tube
London’s Tube is very lively place in the town There’s nothing usually the same … each day is different in London’s Tube… You can meet here many people and many things can happen. Some people do are able to make some exercises. Some even do jogging! This is nice as those, really feel comfortably and just live!   I like people reading newspapers because they forgetting about other commuters and start to behave naturally. But each person is different and I really like it! I am a good observer I think, and  very often I am trying to catch something what other missed.   Thankfully London Tube’s architects implemented those nice mirrors in which I am taking some pictures. I will try many times yet until will I’ll catch that best one, but that one below I really like. In Tube light is rather difficult for photography but everything is possible. I am using available light to catch something interesting.   I need to spend more time in London Tube to get more familiar with its possibilities and to discover something more as I think this is not explored cave!
