It was a really early and beautiful morning outdoors. Laughing was a big part of it.

Aizvadītajā gadā man bija lieliska iespēja paviesoties Islandē un Lapzemē, kur sekoju pa pēdām Latvijas Radio žurnālistēm Paula Gulbinska un Sandra Kropa, un veidoju foto materiālu par viņu radio stāstiem.
I had a wonderful opportunity to visit Iceland and Swedish Lapland during last year where I was making photo material of interviews (for Latvian Radio).
Currently there is photo exhibition at The Nordic Council of Ministers in Latvia office with best of the pics from these amazing trips. Thanks to Nordic Council of Ministers in Latvia office and Zinamais Nezinamaja team - Paula Gulbinska and Sandra Kropa.
It was honour and also pleasure to take photos of Minister of State for Europe of Germany at the Federal Foreign Office visit in Riga, Latvia.

I had a great opportunity to travel to Helsinki, Finland for first time. Very limited time, but I got several photos despite of that.
Many thanks for support Nordic Council of Ministers Office in Latvia!
P.S. Why I was there - information will be available later during this month :)
Recently I had a chance to try out presets, introduced by Sleeklens (company that provides workflow for professional photographers).
I have never been a huge fan of presets but this time a gave it a chance and... it works out nicely. I didn't like the color exaggeration for some of brushes but most of them worked well with my pictures. I liked the "Brighten shadows" tool the best.
In short - easy for using, large collection, highly recommended for those who don't mind using presets in their photography and are too busy for editing pictures in more complex ways.
