This is amazing: our Sun in 5 years of observation.
We are lucky to see things like this. A real life - not digital fantasy like Star Wars movie trailer :-)

Our universe has so much wonder in it we don't need to make a of it up. Watching the Dragon in it's assent after it left Earth and the pull of the atmosphere w/ the cameras they put aboard so we could see Dragon spread it's solar shields. That's was amazing to see .

How cool is this? A simple "click" that I did during the demo shot on a free webinar that we had last Wednesday. 
What I can tell you that this is a real simple shot. If you want to do hard-to reproduce, unique splashes, join me on upcoming workshop here:
https://www.photigy.com/art-sculpting-splashes-photography…/
You'll learn how to do a real "WOW" shots, not a simple splashes like this one

For this shot I only had the 5 bottles my client gave me and the idea he wanted for the image… he wanted “fresh” “clean” and “young” he also needed some blank space for adding text later on…

Today we went to Sanborn County Park in Saratoga to meet +Ivan Makarov  , and accidentally found a huge amount of Ukrainian people celebrating "Cosmonaut Day" and "Ukrainian Easter", this year it was the same calendar days for both events. 
Soft portrait of my girls is what we brought back:-)

Story

The Lighting Magician
Introduction
I am completely self taught. I don't know the rules, nor do I care about them. I don't follow the herd, I do it my way.
That’s turned out to be invaluable in what I do. It has allowed me to experiment, see outside the borders, challenge the authorities and create a stunning photography style that is crisp, sharp and crystal clear.

I’m inspired by progress and movement. I’m incredibly persistent and never take "less than perfect" for an answer. If I don't have the right tools, I'll build them myself. I like to make stuff happen.
 

My educational photography projects:
My e-books and video tutorials:

P.S Sorry to everyone who sent me an email with photography related questions and never got my answer. I simply can't answer to everyone, even if I'll work full day answering your questions.

Please submit your question to our forum:  Studio Photography Forum
