Underwater Life

I love the sea. I also love marine life, and I would absolutely love to take photos of it. But, the nearest reef is in Eilat (the southest city in Israel), which is 4 hours away from me. Also, I do not own any underwater photography equipment, plus I’ve already heard some horror stories of underwater cases…

Shades of Fall

A few days ago, I had the chance to capture some nice macro shots in the cold, rainy Moscow. 1/200s, ISO 640 The weather is similar to Israel’s winter (windy, rainy, freezing). We don’t really have an actuall fall in Israel – it’s super hot and dry, rarely rainy (very mildly though) and barely any fall…

Macro Morning

As mentioned before, best macro shots are taken in the morning. Very early morning. Right before dawn, it’s still too cold for the insects. The sun isn’t there yet to warm them up – so naturally, they’re not too active. Bees are found resting on flowers, barely moving, warming themselves up. Same about all other…

Port of Jaffa

The port is very small and not used for any commercial purposes (for that, we Haifa’s, Ashdod’s and Eilat’s ports). I visited the port…

Black and White Morning

B&W photographs can pe rather interesting. Sometimes, the most generic and boring photos become much more interesting to the eye when you go black and white. Of course, the photos turn B&W on editing, and not in the camera setting – You can always turn a photo b&w, but you can’t go back. So it’s…

Shooting Ducks

Having a whole WEEK OFF is just amazing! Suddenly, I have all this free time at my disposal! Of course, using this spare time for my hobbies is a necessary (don’t get to do that so often. That’s how this blog was born btw). 1/200s, f/9, ISO 100, Manual Mode I my packed my camera…
