Úplne na začiatku bol sen postaviť si maličkú stienku na posilňovanie a trénovanie v kotolni. Ale kam čert nemôže, tam pošle ženu. A tak vďaka mojej Dominike je z maličkej stienky odrazu viac ako 50 metrov štvorcových steny s viac ako 600 možnosťami na chyty. Stena s rozmerami 4,5... read more

Film alebo digitál?

For English version, go to Film or Digital entry on Land & Colors.Občas na svojom webe vyprodukujem text, ktorý sa mi zdá dostatočne zaujímavý, aby som ho preložil aj do rodného jazyka. Toto je prvý z nich, ak ma nezveziete pod čiernu zem, mienim v tom pokračovať. A teraz k... read more

Jeseň v Rakúskych Alpách

Aj keď minuloročná jeseň farbám a počasiu príliš nepriala, nám sa predsa len jeden víkend v Alpách vydaril.Dlho sme plánovali kam vyrazíme. Predpoveď vyzerala sľubne a my sme sa vytešovali, že budeme pobehovať po horách s oblakmi pod nohami. Teda pobehovať nie je ten správny... read more

Fráza 'lepšie raz vidieť ako stokrát počuť' v žiadnom prípade neplatí, pokiaľ ide o polárnu žiaru. Pretože tú je TISÍCKRÁT lepšie RAZ vidieť ako MILIÓNKRÁT počuť a úplne najlepšie je vidieť ju aspoň STOKRÁT, lebo VŽDY sa budete mať na čo pozerať, a nepočúvať o nej... read more

12. novembra bola na oslave 15. narodenín Citi Bank oficiálne predstavená aj kniha, ktorú sme mali možnosť pri tejto príležitosti vytvoriť. Všetci pekne v kvádrach sme sa ten večer v príjemnej anonymite zabavili a celkom slušne napapali. Cítil som sa ako člen smotánky, tlačil som... read more

Keď sme s Otom niekedy začiatkom roka 2006 popíjali slivovicu na Lučnej boude a rozvíjali jeho myšlienku založiť malý krajinársky fotoklub, nemali sme o nič väčšie ambície než priaznivci Arnieho Schwarzeneggera, čo si v osemdesiatych rokoch zriaďovali v garážach či pivniciach... read more

If you’re flying to Iceland one day, it’s likely you’ll take Icelandair because there’s not too many services that connect Reykjavik with the continental Europe. In such case, don’t miss your chances to browse though the on-board entertainment options and listen to the Icelandic music... read more

V časoch, keď som sa hrával na pieskovisku za bytovkou, mal som okrem pár ľudí veľmi rád aj veľa vecí, ani neviem prečo. Možno preto, že ich bolo okolo nás omnoho menej ako dnes. Alebo je za tým to, čo neprajem ani najväčšiemu nepriateľovi, a síce skutočnosť, že narodeniny... read more

Presne si pamätám, keď som prvý krát natrafil na záber tejto podivuhodnej krajiny na nejakom zahraničnom fotoserveri pár rokov do zadu. Severské tvary, málo stromov - tipoval som to na Škandináviu, či Island. Kupodivu v popisku svietilo Taliansko, no nič viac. Po hodine gúglenia a... read more

Každý z nás asi pozná niekoho, kto má veľký a drahý foťák. Niektorí s ním vedia slušne zaobchádzať a produkujú naozaj pekné fotky. Ale ja poznám jedného (www.naturephoto.cz), čo k tomu všetkému dokáže ešte aj dlho a vcelku súvisle o fotografovaní rozprávať a takých... read more

Landscape Photograpy with Telephoto Lenses

Landscape Photograpy with Telephoto Lenses

Ondřej Prosický | 9. september, 2010 | 7 comments | views 45238×

Some time ago, I was questioned how to take photographs using telephoto lenses. As my answer started to be unexpectedly long, I worked out the topic in the article that might be of use for other readers. I really enjoy shooting with long telephoto lenses hence I take landcapes with them... read more

Following the departure of few colleagues announced earlier this month, we have felt the need to energize our club with some fresh blood. This is also because there is a robust internal part of the lightharmony into where we post our recent work and discuss it, think of projects, techniques or any... read more

It might have been a combination of hot drinks and cold weather that drove Ota to the idea of setting up a space for sharing and discussing our landscape photos within some sort of a private area. Our mood got very (too) high as we were talking about establishing a ‘virtual camera club’ that... read more

What do you think a good light is? There are many forms of light but generally a “golden hour” is widely considered as the very best time to take photos. No matter how cliche-ish this sounds. Whoever (landscape photographer or not) gets to any attractive place on the Earth during the “golden... read more

So – what’s the big deal? What’s a RAW file, and is it really better than a JPEG? How does processing a RAW file compare to developing an image in a darkroom? Am I a “real” photographer if I process my images in Photoshop?These are questions I hear all the time – one fan even told me he... read more

In spite of not very good weather forecast, we decided to do a winter tour in Austrian Alps. It took us a while to decide what would be the best to do. After all, we made a plan to reach the 2942 meter high Hochkonig with overnight stay in the mountain hut Matras House, located on top of the summit. According to available information, there was one room still available, but without heating. read more
