How are you all doing?
I'm doing great. I'm in the middle of doing this year campaign for Israeli tourism department. If you want to know more about it, I wrote about it in a previous journal ->…
Other than that I'm living my "day job" in Media marketing and I'm starting an Internet research department for my Company ( that I hope will me more satisfying and will broaden my horizons to the future of how the web is going to be, and how is should be. Of course, photography will always be a major part of my personal future.

Now, I invite you to take a look with me, at 10 of my favorites Under my weekly spotlight

Jump by Stridsberg

Great beauty and strong expression. That's the best combination. The photographers point of view, standing far from his "model" created that point of view. Most of us think that in order to get a good model shot we want to be close, but here is an example of what we can do differently.

Misty lake by Fanfnirr

The tone and atmosphere here is what makes this one special. The composition and minimalism is great for the mood, and of course the mist as well.

And here is a sharp and clean landscape, not as moody, but just as beautiful. Sharp lines, good composition and great graphic lines.

Now, that's a creatibe photographer. Using whatever he can to make a "point of view" statement. A street bench makes this one flow and much more interesting than usual. Bravo!

Graet colors and sweet reflection. I love the street scene, and the expression (trying to clean up the streets for puddles?)

Poetic photo. The work of an artist. The composition is brilliant, and I just love the lines and overall resault.

There's one picture I want to look at but DeviantArt says it's not there. It's called Love Echoes by hearthy.
Brilliant stuff though.

Alright, Thank you, will have a look! :)
gilad Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2008  Professional Photographer
Go for the entry level DSLR like the Canon 400D or Nikon D40. That's my opinion
Juhani Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hi there. I looked through the tutorials, but maybe I should just ask you: What camera would you recommend for a would-be photographer? I'm an amateur, but am looking to buy a nice enough camera that will get high-quality results (at least 8mega pixels), with manual zoom function and maybe some other tricks. I saw in your gallery that you use a canon 5d (if it's something like this >[link] < then it's way out of my price range)
I dont know whether to go with sony, canon, kodak or fujifilm. Help please ! :)

Keep up the great work! As soon as my visa credit card is ready im gonna buy some of your stuff!

True... But you understood ;)

Great journal.
I presume for number 4 it's meant to say "creative", not "creatibe"
Desolate71 Featured By Owner May 30, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Of course. I totally agree. I just improved the occasion to say this about your art.
Good stuff(/photography) is in many corners.. and we can choose what we love more and what coincide with ourselves :)
