NY Central Park (Again)

Few photos from central park taken on my last NY visit using my Panasonic LX5.

Seattle View #2

Photographs from Seattle streets. Being addicted to my Panasonic LX5 I have played with the very nice bracketing feature of the camera (hand held) and got nice HDRs (first two images).

Seattle View

Given my frequent travels and the need to be in different place each day (last trip, Seattle, Chicago, Minnesota & New York in 5 days) I decided to minimize the equipment I’m carrying with me. I’ve just purchased Panasonic LX5 and I’m using it as my traveling camera whenever I know I did not allocate significant time for photographer on the trip.

I’m unhappy with the 2nd image as it turns to the left but i couldn’t cropped it without losing important content. Finally decided to go with it as is, what do you think?

Will process the new photographs from the trip in the coming days. Stay tuned …

Strawberry Picking & Hila Portraits

In the recent months I barely had time to photograph. Most (if not all) of my photos are somewhat family related. Here are some of the recent portaits of the kids.
I’m starting to use more heavily artificial lights. In the two indoors portraits I used Canon 580II flash and in the near future i plan to expand flash equipment with some umbrellas and other accessories.

I barely update the site these days.. with Hila (our new baby girl), family obligations, new work and life, 99% of my photos became family photos… I hope it will change soon but in the mean time, here are some family photos from the last month:
