Martin Pustelnik, born under the sign of Aquarius in 1976 in Ostrava. My positive attitude towards nature, from childhood where I spend almost all their free time, resulted in 2005 buying my first digital SLR Canon 350D and Canon 100 mm f2.8 macro lens. Two years ago, I photographed everything was moving in the grass and I have way trips and tours to hit, whether it was the insects, flowers, landscapes, cars, sometimes I went to the zoo.
In the spring of 2007 I discovered my love affair – dragonfly photography , then I changed makrosklo Canon 100 mm long for the Sigma 150mm. Marginal issue are photos of flora , whether wild flowers, or abstract the details of garden flowers. Especially in the spring I will fulfill the local flora photo gallery with new additions. Macro like to take pictures of nature in the morning time of long shadows, the light draws warm colors. The second topic which I want to devote more deeply are people . I like reportage photos, portraits and glamor photos. My wish is to discover and explore the remote end of the world through the lens and capture moments of life of local people’s culture.
I put emphasis on wildlife macro, ie. zero interference with the subject in the foreground (dragonfly), and minimal intervention in everything. Everything from the light, exposure to paint directly on the scene looking for so that I did in the PC just basic adjustments like curves, WB, etc. I prefer I use natural light for additional light goes back to the flash or reflector plate.
I take pictures with Canon’s technology , with which I am extremely satisfied. Canon Digital EOS 5D Mark II and Canon EOS body kinofilmové 30 + Canon 24 mm glass f/1.4L II USM, Canon 50mm f/1.4 USM, Canon 85 mm f/1.2L II USM and Sigma 150 mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM.
