This part of RealityTrader site is my rest area. Favorite way to waste time with no purpose - in other words, hobby and fun. Some of the photos I like and want to share, some shooting techniques, some photo gear matters - that's what this site is about.
I shoot with Olympus gear, currently E-M1. Favorite lenses are 12-40 f/2.8, 50 F2 macro, 50-200 f/2.8-3.5 and 7-14 f/4.
