Surreal landscape, seascape and cityscape images.
Silvijo Selman photography Promote your Page too I started photography with my first camera, the OLYMPUS Camedia C-1 which I bought to take photographs of my family. I slowly began to discover that photography can be much more than just taking family pictures and that in in combination with a computer it offers many possibilities for creative expression. I live in a town with four rivers so I am constantly surrounded by beautiful compositions of water, mist and trees. These landscapes are the ones that brought me into the world of photography. Capturing the accuracy of landscapes and later on processing them, so they look surreal, became my obsession. My goal was to create my own style. I wanted to express the mood of the photograph by processing and giving it a certain story.
Later on I came in contact with concert, performance and band portrait photography. With this I have met a lot of new people, listened to great music and have seen a lot of interesting performances. The same as in landscape photography, my aim was to create my own recognizable style that is different from other photographers. I can say that I have achieved my goal and am proud of the result
I love working with my old OLYMPUS E-30 although I am beginning to use micro four thirds and the OLYMPUS OM-D cameras more and more because they are lighter and faster. Also the photos I take with them give me more opportunities to process them later on so I can be even more creative. It pleases me that Olympus has introduced quality video to their OM-D cameras so I am now discovering a whole new world of videography. Up until now I have used a wide range of OLYMPUS equipment: E-500, E-30, E-3, PEN, OM-D E-M1 and OM-D E-M5 in the combination with various OLYMPUS lenses.
