For Mladina weekly I’ve done two portraits of Matej Praprotnik. He is a young speaker of Slovenian National Radio, program Val 202. He is know for his wicked talk humor, where he twist words in a new meaning. Like once he in last second of his show he said “Janez in Urška se bosta” and then there was The News and other speaker said POROČILA! OK. for all of 5998 million of you who don’t speak Slovenian Janez is our Prime Minister and Urška is his about 20 years younger partner and The news in Slovenian is POROČILA and that is exactly the same word for married, so in Slovenian that sounded like “Janez and Urška will get” and then other speaker said Married (THE NEWS). Really clever and sparkling humor! HERE is a link to Nina blogger writing about him.

About the picture… I wanted to take his portrait with this sculptor of a boy whistling, that is also a trade mark of Slovenian National Television and Radio. I wanted that he is interviewing him and since this sculpture is really known in Slovenia I also wanted to take a picture of the sculpture from an unusual angle. I set my camera on a tripod, extend the tripod fully, grab it on the tripod legs, rased it as high as I could and release the shutter with remote release cable. Before I started to photograph from high above I did a test shot and that is the first picture, probably the best one, although I really like both images.

  5. Prva, seveda.
    Sicer pa je njegov humor naporen v smislu, da moraš biti kdaj že zgodaj zjutraj zbran, da se lahko zabavaš zraven 🙂
