'Lost'
One of my archived shots from 2015, re-processed in 2015. I took it in the desert at the outskirts of Dubai during my photo-outing with Colby Brown Photography. Yea, that's him trying to find his way back home.
I took this shot with a Canon 5Dmk2 and Canon 70-300 mm lens.

Processed with Lightroom 5, Photoshop CC 2015 and +Nik Collection by Google

'AL SALAM TOWER'
Featured is Al Salam Tower, home of Du headquarters. This area of Dubai isn't often photographed but like the rest of this city, everything is work in progress. If close your eyes and open them 10 years from now, you probably won't be able to recognize this same frame. Ok. Make that 5 years.
Photographed with Canon 5Ds and Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II and LEE Big Stopper (10-stops ND filter).

This is probably my favourite shot from my last trip in NYC. I had to wait until the very last day of my brief visit to be rewarded with this amazing red sky over Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge. The whole spectacle lasted just a few minutes before returning to murky grey tones. Isn't that how all wonderful moments in life come and go?

'Time Dilation' - Before / After
Many of you have requested I post the 3 shots which make the 'Time Dilation' shot, so here it is. 3 AM, 5 AM and 8 AM photos taken from the same location, from the roof of the Four Points by Sheraton Sheikh Zayed Road. Of course, having 3 great shots was just the starting point. The rest happened inside Photoshop and a few other plugins. It's a slow, painstaking process, but well worth the result.

I think this would make a great tutorial, lots of people would love to see how you did this! Have you thought of uploading the three originals for other people to have a go, to see what they can do with them?

How important is the post-production in professional photography? I'd say it's 70% in favour of post, if not higher.

'Time Dilation'

There have been many photos of Dubai captured from this vantage point, but never like this. 
What you're looking at is a mixture of 3 photos, captured at 3 different times; 3am, 6am and 8am. Unlike the usual time-lapse blended stills where mixing is done with simple gradients, this one is blended with layered masks on a facade-per-facade level. The result is surreal, somewhat disorienting and...pretty neat. I think I'm going to do a few more of these and name the style as 'time-dilation image blending'.
Captured in Jan 2015 with Canon 5Dmk3 and Canon 50mm f1.2L lens. Processed with Lightroom CC 2015, Photoshop CC 2015 and NIK Software with Wacom Intuos Touch Pro.

'Salmon Serenity' I'd be the first to say that there's no way Dubai could ever be described as 'serene' but incredible peace and silence is exactly what I experienced during my early morning shoot at Dubai Marina. Ramadan probably had a lot to do with it as most people wake up very late during this month and morning activities seem to be reduced to zero. The place was as quiet as a camp in the middle of the desert. Water was like an oily mirror ...

Introduction

Beno Saradzic

Photographer | Emmy Nominated Time Lapse Cinematographer | Visual Artist

Biography

Beno is a Slovenian born time lapse cinematographer, photographer and visual artist. He is currently based in Dubai, UAE.

 For 18 years, Beno has trained his eye in the art of seeing as a 3D Computer Animation and Architecture Visualization specialist. As a veteran digital artist, Beno won numerous accolades and awards such as the rank of 'Autodesk Master' as well as the winner of the prestigious 'Tektronix International Design Visualization Competition' in 1993. For his continuous contributions to the art of architectural visualization, Beno was given a 'Special Merit of Excellence' award by Kinetix / Autodesk in 2005. Beno's 3D generated art was published in several international architectural visualization publications and books such as the '3DS MAX 2008 Foundation'. Beno was also a contributing consultant for Michigan State University at the Department of Forensic Science.

In 2008, Beno started exploring new creative avenues which lead him to discover the world of photography and time lapse cinematography. Having a solid foundation and decades of practice in related types of visual arts, Beno’s transition to his newly found passion was a swift one. By 2011, he had dozens of photographs and time lapse films specially featured across local and international media and publications. His body of work is recognized for its use of light and composition, drawing strong influences from the classics of cinema and traditional art.

Beno's comprehensive portfolio is defined by his profound love for architecture, engineering, science and the beauty of nature. His vast knowledge of digital imaging technologies is evident in every photograph. As an individual accustomed to dramatic profession changes, Beno believes in the power of a life-long learning process and feeding the child-like curiosity throughout adulthood. He tirelessly experiments with fresh styles of photography while refusing to box himself in any particular genre. Keeping the broad and diverse subject matters in front of his lens is the secret sauce to creative liberty and inspiration.

His list of clients include BBC’s Natural History Unit, the Discovery Channel, Canon Middle East, Emirates Airline, Abu Dhabi and Dubai Governments and many others.

He has recently been nominated for an Emmy for his achievements in cinematography. He is also a Silver Dolphin Award winner of the prestigious Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards.

Beno shoots for major image libraries such as Getty Images, Alamy and Trevillion Images. As a photo educator, Beno frequently hosts photography workshops and inspiration seminars on time lapse photography, fine art photography and digital image post-processing. He is a frequently featured artist and has made numerous appearances and tutorials on various blogs such as 500px.com, Scott Kelby One, Trey Ratcliff's Variety Hour, Topaz Labs Blog and many others.
