Summer’s coming

Some photos from this weekend. Nothing much, but I was happy to finally test-out my new lens, plus, there was a part at my girl’s mom’s summer house, steaks, beer and such… ;)

Here are a few more photos I took with my new Canon 70-200mm lens. It’s a real pleasure shooting with this one :)

It finally arrived today! My new Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM lense. I’ve been really looking forward to this lens as I, usually, shoot from greater distance and in motion. So, a telephoto lens with an image stabilizer was always what I wanted. Especially after trying out Milan Vasek’s Sigma APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG MACRO HSM, for which I thank him again ;) , I felt this kind of a lens would be a must have for the kid of photos I take. So, after a lot of comparisons, charts, reviews, etc… I finally ordered this one and today I, very briefly though, tested it outside. It was getting late, around 7pm., so this was a good time to test out its speed. Well, I’m not a photographer, I just like my Canon EOS 400D that I bought mainly for shooting references, textures and “family photos”, if you know what I mean :D but I felt in love with it and I try to keep improving my skills, so this lens, really, is an extreme luxury for me, but that’s the way I am :) Anyways, here are some photos I took with this lens on and slightly post-processed them in Lightroom and Photoshop, mainly adjusting exposure and colors (I always shoot in RAW, by the way).

Půlnoční Marie concert

loocas | photos | Sunday, May 18th, 2008

A few photos I took tonight at Jet Club on Půlnoční Marie‘s concert, where our supervisor and collegue, Jan (Buf) Bubeníček, performs.
The quality of the photos is very poor as I was forced to shoot at extreme ISO values (1600) with very long exposure times when shooting without a flash.

Vacation | Ramsau am Dachstein 2008

loocas | photos | Sunday, February 24th, 2008

Ahhhh… back from a one week vacation, full of energy, full of power :D yeah, it was cool, literarly. But I’m glad to be back home sitting at my workstation editing photos and catching up missed work :/

Anyways, I thought I’d share some of the photos I took during the week period which I personally liked as much as to not be ashamed (too much ;) to show them publicly. So here they are:

First and fourth day we went skiing on Dachstain, a well known iceberg in Austria, pretty flat, but with an awesome view over the Alps.

On the 3rd, critical, day, me and my girlfriend went for a hike to see the frozen waterfalls in the mountains. The path there was a bit rough, but it was a beautiful day with no clouds in the sky and the nature and environment was fantastic. See for your self:

And here are some misc pictures taken during the days, by the way, did I say it was cold?

Sunday at a shooting-range

loocas | photos | Sunday, February 3rd, 2008

Some friends of my dad’s invited him and me to a shooting-range to fire some arms. It was great! Further more, I got to shoot from a sniper rifle (don’t know the type, unfortunately) which was super awesome. One of the guys promised to take more fire arms next time we go for a shot. Hopefully I get to shoot a chaingun or a bazooka next time :D

Ota, entering the shooting-range premises and unpacking his firearms:

Me, my dad and his friends started on a pistol short shooting-range with a Glock and a Berreta 9mm:

However, the long (200m) shooting-range is where the fun really started:

I got to shoot at 150m and 200m targets with much worse results then the rest of the lot, but still hitting the black spot, which felt great! :) The kick-back of the Remington 700 cal. 308 was overwhelming, really, I didn’t expect that at first actually (hence only the last 3 shots out of 4 hit the target, at first :D ). The smaller rifle was a CZ 452 ZKM cal. 22.

As I said before, it was a great experience and I’m really looking forward to the next time we go shooting. I highly recommend it to anyone who admires weapons and all kinds of armory as it is mandatory that you understand the power and responsibility you hold at your fingertip.

The UPP force II

Here we go again! I took my camera to work today and took some (crappy needless to say) pictures with it. So, here are some more pictures of the UPP folks working on the Nutcracker project.

Summerhouse visit

loocas | photos | Friday, January 25th, 2008

I’d like to show some more photos I liked. This bunch was shot when on a rare visit to our summerhouse in Chrenovice nad Sazavou. I used to spend summer holidays there and therefore have quite nice and nostalgic memories of the place. We went to visit our ount and uncle last October who were there for a short vacation. The photos mostly picture my bro, mom, my paren’ts dog, Channela, and the beatiful nature and environments of Chrenovice. I really miss those summers.
