photography: the art, science and practice of creating durable images by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as photographic film.
aleks specializes in technical studio photography, where the fine-tuned control of light is required to create very calculated images. specifically, macro studio photography provides an arena where all the principles of optics can be employed to create ethereal photographs.
leaving the studio does not imply leaving behind flashes, umbrellas and tripods. dark scenes, such as abandoned buildings and parties, provide a creative setting for studio lighting.
travelling is conducive to creative and spontaneous photography, which offsets the lack of control inherent to natural lighting and the absence of studio equipment.
japan abounds in juxtaposition of modern and traditional photographic elements. kyoto served as a hub during aleks’ six-month stay in japan, where a photographic opportunity presents itself at every street corner. (selected photos at HD1080p with soundtrack: .mov (156MB) or .mp4 (311MB))
weddings put the photographer in a very tight time constraint which can both limit creativity, or precipitate it. wedding photography is a particular type of mental challenge, and the ultimate test of a photographer’s candid abilities.
panoramic photography is a wide-format technique, where up to 360° of a scene is captured in a sequence of photographs and stitched together.
