Greetings from Poland!
My name is Krzysztof Strzoda (shortly Chris). Photography bring me for over 30th years, however I am still enthusiast and I hope that so it will be up to my end days. I live in Central Europe in the industrial region, but most of my photos are landscapes and even to be more precisely – mountain landscapes. I like composition created in my head before I shot the image and photography is very often only pretext to go hundreds or even thousands km to be in the heart of mountain. I am not only looking for beauty of nature but also I am seeking abstracts in the nature, where details are more important than wide view. Most of my photographs are black and white. Other themes which I like to visualize are connected with move: animals, water, clouds etc.
Today I would like to show some of my classical works created in Tatra Mountains. There is part of project which I have provided in Tatra Mountain National Park since 2012 and I hope it will last two or three-years yet. That three photographs was taken in 2012 year with Nikon D7000 and Nikkor 12-24/f4. The exposure was 1/3 sec @f/19 (images 1-2) and 15 sec. @ f/11 (image 3) with ISO 100. Post-production was in LR 3 and PS CS4. I tried to make the best with conditions and the light that were that day. I have read your blog for a few months, it is a full of inspired photographs and very useful information. Next months I will send images from Dolomites taken by Sony RX100II, which I bought after reading your review.
Thanks and all the best,
