My name is Marek Kijevský. I am from Slovakia, but I live in Prague, Czech republic several years.
I have always loved photography, but I have started to learn about photography since I bought my first DLSR in 2009. I didn’t know anything about it, so I started to take photos occasionally when I had little bit of time. I really loved macro photography especially butterflies and dragonflies, but it was limited to summer time period.
My full passion for photography came, when I was in Dubai in 2013. This visit changed my view at photography and gave me new direction (cityscape and landscape photography ) of my photography passion .
Firstly I tried HDR post-processing in my images, but I didn’t like “synthetic” look of colors and lights. I found my inspiration in a technique of Digital Blending, which obtain maximum dynamic range through manually blending multiple bracketed exposures.
Sometimes I am trying to try some new processing techniques, but mostly I am “loyal” to Digital Blending. I hope I will be able to find new points of view and places to bring fans and viewers my interpretation of new amazing places around the world.
