Tutorial Lightroom: Brush Tool

Acesta este un tutorial de bază, pentru utilizatori începători, în care prezint pe scurt modul în care putem folosi “Brush” in Adobe Lightroom. Brush-ul, din punctul meu de vedere, este una din cele mai importante “unelte” din Adobe Lightroom, unealtă care este foarte des trecuta cu privirea. Mulți oameni asociază Adobe Ligtroom cu un mod de a prelucra in serie un număr mare de fotografii, în general aplicând niște preseturi. Într-adevăr, se poate folosi în acest mod, dar potențialul Lightroom-ului și motivul care m-ar face să nu deschid imaginea într-un program mai avansat este chiar acest Brush Tool.

Circuitul Annapurna cu bicicleta – Episodul 2: Syanje – Bagarchhap

Radu Dumitrescu - Grey Wolf Studios

Ne-am trezit destul de dimineața, pentru că aveam de parcurs o distanță destul de mare. Aveam de gând să mergem la Chame. Analizând harta pe care o aveam – Cycling the Annapurna Circuit Map, era mai mult decât realizabil acest obiectiv.  Am luat un mic dejun copios, știind că nu ne vom opri la prânz. Orezul cu lapte a fost delicios, chiar daca nu-mi era foarte foame dupa Dal Bhat-ul de aseară. Am terminat de impachetat, am verificat bicicletele și am plecat.

Totul părea bine, drumul era bun, bicicleta mergea bine, iar prima jumatate de oră mai mult am coborât decât am urcat. Pe langa bucuria de a merge pe bicicletă se mai strecura din când în când  o întrebare de genul “Dacă tot coborâm, unde sunt cei 1500m pe care trebuie să îi urcăm azi?”. Răspunsul a venit si el dupa câteva minute.

Belinda Liu – Fashion Designer si London Fashion Week

Anul a inceput în studio, cu o sedință foto pentru Belinda Liu, creatoare de modă, fondatoare a Belinda Liu Fashion. Nu e prima dată  când lucrăm impreună și de fiecare dată mă bucur să văd o varietate din ce in ce mai mare și să primesc vești vești din ce în ce mai bune de la ea. De data asta vestea cea mare a fost prezența ei (și a colecției ei) la London Fashion Week.

Sedința avea ca scop realizarea unor fotografii simple, pe fundal alb, care să reprezinte colecția de la LFW. Am început de dimineață, am pregatit studioul, a venit și Belinda cu trusa de machiaj si cu rochiile si am inceput.

Urma Live Concert at Club Vivid

Radu Dumitrescu - Grey Wolf Studios

It’s the end of the week and what better way to spend it than shooting your favourite band’s concert. Yes, it’s Urma, and this time it was in a newly opened club that I knew nothing about. It’s been rumoured to have the smartest wall in Bucharest, but like all teasers, you never know what that means.

But I found out as soon as I got there. Got out of the car and saw this big screen on top of the building with my picture on it. The second picture in the linked post. It looked good. Went inside and saw this big wide space with nice lights and great design. I liked the place. Club Vivid had a pretty good design and feel compared to other clubs I’ve seen in town.

Biking the Annapurna Circuit – Episode 1: Getting to Syanje

radu dumitrescu nepal mountain bike annapurna thorung la 2010

 We were back in Kathmandu from our 3 day trip around Kathmandu Valley. We had a busy night trying to rent lighter bikes. Our bikes were decent, around 15kilograms, but we hoped we could rent some light ones. We wanted light bikes because we took a last minute decision of biking the Annapurna Circuit. Alina trekked it last time she was in Nepal, but it seemed like a good idea to cycle it. She said it’s OK to cycle, because the paths are good and it seemed like a good idea. She kept reminding me that she has a lot more cycling experience than me and that she’s in a much better shape than me since I didn’t get to do that much cycling at home, basically none in the last 6 months. I also never went as high as 5416m (Thorung La pass) as we’re going to get on this trip.

4 idei despre fotografia culinara

Radu Dumitrescu - Grey Wolf Studios

După cum spune și titlul, acesta este un mic articol ce are ca subiect fotografierea mâncării (food photography, pentru prietenii noștri vorbitori de limba engleză) și 4 aspecte pe care daca le veți lua in considerație, numărul cuvintelor cenzurabile pe care le veți rosti / gândi când veți descărca pozele va scădea simțitor.

1. Ce ne interesează atunci când fotografiem mâncarea?

Urma Live at Radio Guerrilla – Guerrilive

Radu Dumitrescu - Grey Wolf Studios

When people go to a concert, they usually go to a club or stand in front of a big stage waiting for their favourite band to show up and start playing. This time it was different. People stayed at home, stayed at work, or in their cars, with their browsers pointed at www.orange.ro/guerrilive or their radios tuned to Radio Guerrilla.

A concert that could be seen and heard online and listened on the radio. I think it brought some happiness after a busy day at work or, if the day was not over, introduced a little brake in their schedule.

Biking Back to Kathmandu

Radu Dumitrescu - Nepal, 2010

Morning came and the inevitable happened. We had to wake up. Because we got here at night we didn’t get a chance to see pretty much anything, only a couple on moonlit reflections on Kulekhani lake before reaching Markhu. I loved the place we stayed at. It resembled Transilvanian country homes / huts.

Biking to Markhu

Radu Dumitrescu - Grey Wolf Studios - Nepal 2010

We had a good night’s sleep. After some delicious Dal Bhat in the evening and the previous pedaling day we slept like babies.

The guy from the lodge we slept showed us the best way to get to from Dashinkhali to Kulekhani Lake. We were supposed to reach Kulekhani during the first day, but things did not quite go as planned.

So we woke up early in the morning but didn’t manage to leave too soon, since it took a while until our breakfasts arrived. People were already working. They usually wake up around 5:30 AM. They work on the rice terraces all day long. They have lunch a little later than we have breakfast. Makes you feel a little weird, being a tourist and just biking from place to place.
