Interesting work was shown by University's students, but my main point of attention was of course Raymon Tan's work. The concept was based on 6 basic emotions people can have and the way a viewer feels when confronted by these images. Great concept and and amazing images and video instalaltion - good example of transformation of photography, digital art and a concept into work which makes you think and analise yourself. Well done, Ray!

I think that great photographers in general can see a bit more than anyone else. This is what is called "photographers eye" - to see and be able to show something the way people can not see or express it. There is so much more in our heads than one can express in words and, more difficult, visually. When a picture can say something, say more than one can express and see - this is a true work of art, this is what I love in photography. Considering that there are too many bad photographs nowadays, which do not have visual impact, or, more often, have nothing to say.
I need to admit, that I'm talking now about real photography, not digitalised works - which are forms of art, but actually not true photography I believe.
So, yes, that picture makes my day and reminds me what I really-really want to achieve.

Here we are. Some “backstage” pictures from a test shoot I’ve done recently. It’s the first proper model shoot I’ve done at home, in my new little studio. I’m trying to get everything I could out of space I have and out of lights I have at home, so that shoot was a big trial.
It is very important during the shoot to keep sense of humour, relaxed atmosphere. That’s why this shoot was a successful example for me. To the end it all want so crazy and funny – that’s where I got my fav shots.
Thanks to Kelly Mendiola for great job done, as always.
