A while ago I read the words of a photographer. He said he takes photos of flight, not of birds.
Somehow, that statement was intriguing for me. What does it mean to take photos of flight? If there is no flying object, there is no flight. So he is not interested in birds, but in the way they are flying.
I started to think, what do I want to capture when I press the shutter. Is it the bird? Is it its flight? Is it what?
After a while I realized I am interested in bird’s freedom during its flight.
So, for me it is all about its freedom during each flight.
It was a hot day and I was walking slowly on a country road.
Rich smells of sunflower, of grass and corn were everywhere.
It is so amazing how much beauty is around us and how many interesting beings.
But, in front of your screen, you will never able to feel the wind bringing the scent of sunflower. In best case, seeing this image you will recall a beautiful moment from the past.
This photo of the butterfly is taken last year. I was alone on a plain and it was very hot. I was observing some bee eaters in flight when this butterfly appeared. It was standing on a corn leaf. Nothing new here, just a butterfly and a leaf. But I think it is an interesting perspective.
I was enjoying a beautiful walk when I noticed these wild flowers. I wanted a beautiful photo of them but…how to choose the best point of view? As usually, you need to kneel, you need to get down and get dirty but the effort is paid off.
