Camouflage For Wildlife Photography

The main goal of camouflage is to blend in with the environment as much as possible.
Becoming invisible to the animals, which will allow you to observe them undisturbed and in most cases will give you the only way to get as close to them as possible. Each animal responds differently ...

Trail Camera

I do not know how about you, but I do not like to take photos from photo blind too often. Not that I’m claustrophobic, or that my choice of photo blind was so bad, and it would not be comfortable enough to stay in. But the limited view angle and mobility do not suit me so much. Because ...

Nikon 500mm PF

Nikon couldn't have done it better. I never hoped that after buying the Nikon 200-500 I would need an update with the same focal length and same aperture. By specifications, an identical lens is ripped off by the zoom option and is a little lighter. But it's a hell of a difference. It is smaller and lighter, you can ...

Nikon Z6

In this article I would like to share my experience with the Nikon Z6 and my personal opinion on why I'll probably never go back to DSLRs. Despite the many drawbacks that this generation of mirrorless models from Nikon has, it offered me plenty of tools to take pictures better, more comfortably and with more ...

Cuban iguana

There are moments when the photo just screams at you how much it would like to be in black and white. For photography of nature and animals, black and white is not the best solution, but if ... If I need to emphasize the structure and enhance the play of light, black and white processing...

Summer with Brown Hares

I have to say, the hares get my attention this summer. At the time before the roe deer rut, when I was walking around a few localities and watching its onset, I came across quite a few hares on one of them. The hares stay very close to the forest and forest paths. I tried to observe ...

Gitzo Adventure 30l

The smaller brother from Gitzo Adventure 45l got into my hands. Has spent some time with me to get to know each other already. In the past, I preferred hiking backpacks for their versatility I needed. I don't carry that much photo equipment with me anymore. Extra space for clothing, camouflage, and an easy  ...

FlexShooter

The choice of a tripod head will probably be a very subjective choice in all circumstances, but certainly also greatly influenced by its primary use. During the whole time, I tried almost all types of solutions. I started with a classic ball head, which was later replaced by a fluid video head. Due to the transition ...

European bison

A tremendous animal that I really enjoy photographing. You won't come across it in the wild here in the Czech Republic, but I am very grateful for the few reservations where it is possible to observe these majestic beasts and take some decent pictures as well. My favorite spot where it's possible...

Ground squirrel

Ground squirrel is a rewarding animal to photograph and observe. These agile and curious little animals live in larger colonies on grasslands with lower vegetation. The best place to get to know them is the park in Radouč near Mladá Boleslav. They are quite used to people there and it is very ...

24h LeMans

For several years in a row (if I remember correctly, since 2015), we go with a group of other "boys" in the first half of June in the direction of Normandy to a small town called Le Mans. We don't go there to seduce French ladies with boxed wine and cans of lunchmeat. We are dignified ...
