     To some people the video feature of DSLR cameras is a major benefit, for others it is an unnecessary add-on. I am one of those who appreciate the video feature. Photography and video require different approaches to the subject and also different camera settings. A photograph captures an instant in time, while movie clips have time duration of various lengths. Both image capturing modes rely on the photographer’s subjective framing of the scene. The picture frame, which is a small portion of the environment of which it is a part, conveys the condition only within the frame, but not what is happening around it. Therefore neither a photo nor a video ever tells the whole truth. Movie clips are rarely joined together the way they were shot in the final movie. Photoshop enhancements and manipulations transform photographs in varying degrees. In the end it is difficult to determine what level of manipulation should be allowed for a photograph to be considered a reliable and accurate document.
      However, photography is not only about documenting. In an extreme case a photograph may be only part of a collage or an art work. Personally I am, currently at least, most interested in capturing and preserving scenes more or less as they were shot. In short I take snapshots both in still photography and video mode. To make these snapshots interesting and attention capturing is always challenging, but not impossible even for a non-professional photographer. I am learning from others and practice on my own and expect to gradually improve.
     The videos and photos on this site represent my current state of skills and interests. As an architect I have tendency to select architectural subjects, but I am expanding my repertoire slowly but surely. It is my intention to periodically update the site with new video and photo material and improve the site for content and appearance. To do this I welcome feedback from visitors to the site.
