DescriptionThis lake in the wood with the stony coast was formed on a place of work of gold miners at the beginning of the 20th century. It is in a deaf taiga in Siberia (Russia). I consciously used the counterbalanced composition and almost central framing to receive a quiet and tranquil landscape. But full symmetry and steadiness seemed to me too boring therefore I entered into a shot a small slice of the stony coast with an old log.I used the Kiev-6 camera and my favourite film of Fuji Provia 100 type 120 (66 cm) for this shot.
Roman Popov, Novosibirsk Member Since October 2011 Artist Statement Hello! My name is Roman Popov and I am glad to see you on these pages which are devoted to my creativity. I took the my first photocamera in hand when I was 7 years old. I tested myself in various genres and styles since then. But photos of the nature and landscapes remained interesting to me all the time. I began to earn money by means of the camera with 2006. The wedding and portrait photo were the main sources of the income for me long time, but I made the decision to return to sources and to concentrate the efforts to Nature Fine Art Photography and I achieved certain successes in it.
I participated in a number of photo exhibitions in the various cities of Russia: - "Stop the instant — you are beauty" is my debut photo exhibition in 1998, devoted to the nature of the native land. - "Photo exhibition of independent photographers of Novosibirsk" in 2004, Novosibirsk, Russia. I submitted some landscape photos on this exhibition. - "Deposit of Light" Is the Landscape and Nature Fine Art Photography exhibition in the city of St. Petersburg, Russia, in 2006. I was admitted to League of photomasters of St. Petersburg by results of my participation in this exhibition. - Charitable photo exhibition for fund raising on treatment of musician Alexey Kostyushkin. Rostov, Russia, 2012. I submitted 10 photos which illustrate songs of this author. - "Sketches on a canvas by means of light" is the personal photo exhibition of landscape and nature fine-art photography devoted to the 80 anniversary of the town in which I was born.
