Portraits taken with Zenit-E

One of my favourite film cameras is Zenit-E TTL. It features a 50 mm lens with great depth of field for close up portraits. I’m sorry I did not shoot more portraits with it, cause this baby rocks!

Minimalism and everyday-use objects in photography

Most astonishing images communicate using few and basic shapes. The more usual the subject is, the more impact for the viewer. Most of these images are used in marketing – remember the Axe nuts print by Lowe? I have searched through my galleries and found a few shots that can illustrate this type of images.

My Solar light tracker

I was talking to you in a recent article about controlling pwm servos with Atmega. Well, I finally finished my project and I can show it to you.

Scale cars photo session
