Proud to have photographers like Igor Sergeev on Photigy.

Freaking awesome!

How many years someone need to spend in a college learning photography to take photos like this?
The right answer is zero!
This image was made by  Igor Sergeev , a Photigy Pro Club member, based on Pro Club tutorial for an assignment. 
Igor joined Pro Club less than a year ago, with no previous experience in studio photography. 
Do you still think you need years of college to create images like this?

Last week I've tested Sony a7II with that "beach running challenge" - when I run and shoot from a waist line my running daughter, in continues focus and shooting mode. Camera suppose to get what is needed in a focus.
Canon 5DMkIII was great at this. 
Sony was great too, one more reason why I went with Sony: https://www.photigy.com/why-turned-from-canon-to-sony-dslr-is-dead/
P.S Genia Larionova did some "girly processing" to the image, so enjoy it this way!

Right now in the studio. Costume photo party for little ones and their friends! :-))
We setup everything, with huge DOF (F18)  to make everyone in focus and gave them a remote trigger. 
Amazing what 6 girls can do when left alone in front of the camera:-))

Photographers Beware! 18 amazing CGI photos to make you think about future.
BTW: This situation with CGI and 3D in studio photography reminds me what happened with traditional (DSLR) cameras and mirrorless: Canon and Nikon were ignoring mirrorless till the point when Sony came and took the market.
Same will be with CGI and product/architecture photography: you can ignore it, but one day you may find yours business left behind... Do not make it happen: incorporate and use it in your advantage instead of ignoring.
See these examples of what suppose to be a photography...

Another "Splashing Rose". 
The mixture of high speed photography and images of a real flower created by +Genia Larionova  has resulted into something new, something that we did not even plan to create at the beginning.

One of the best way to spend weekend (and life) is to do what you love with those who you love:-) 
Today we finished a new tutorial for +PHOTIGY  Pro Club assignment. 
BTW - If you are waiting for Friday evenings and hate Monday mornings, most likely you are in a wrong place doing wrong things 5 days a week. 
I love Mondays :-)

Sony RX10-II: First impressions. Where is the image quality?? 
I love Sony products, but this camera has way too little sensor for what can be called a "good" photography. See why...

Hey guys, this is an example of why I always suggest to do few other shots after a "hero" is done, using the same /similar lighting setup.
This is an example: Green on Green - a "leftover" from the assignment tutorial shot for Pro Club. DO not forget to submit your work, only few days left.

What I really like in Photigy Studio Basics tutorials is that each one has a practical use in commercial photography work. 
With this new tutorial from +Ilya Plotnikov  you'll help your client to get pictures of their bottled products before the label could be manufactured and placed on a product. 
Cool stuff - thank you Ilya!

There was a place where water is clean and cold, trees green and sky is blue, and I am young.
Now I watch my daughter is wondering there, going to find her way in this life :-)
... Somewhere in North California — with Genia Larionova.
