Meta Krese, a portrait of a journalist

with 10 comments


Mladina made a redesign and from now on I have a square format for my portraits. It’s a stable composition and I have a prejudice that is a dull format, but I’ll see what can I do. I’m delighted to present a portrait of Meta Krese. Meta Krese is an editor, journalist and a photographer. As a journalist she made a critical reportage on life of a Roma in Slovenia. It was published in National Geographic magazine, Slovenian edition and accompanied by photographs of Arne Hodalič. Meta won a very important european journalistic prize “Writing for CEE” from Unicredit Bank with this story. Actually we both visited a location together near Semič. HERE is my post about that visit and I’m publishing an image of them working and Meta’s image of me, teaching Roma how to take pictures.

I’ve made a portrait of Meta four years ago and you can see it HERE. With yesterday’s square portrait I’m quite satisfied. What do you think? Rate, Comment…

  1. Zelo lep portret! Predvsem zanimiva svetloba in nebo. Si potem cropal v kvadrat? Osvetljeval pa s flešom?

  2. Ja, tako je. Na onih presetih, ki si mi jih poslal sem se naučil kako se to dela, tako evo, B5 preset 🙂

  4. Da, u pravu si, imao sam fleš Balcar 1500Ws sa softboxom i upalio sam sa strane. A nisam ga mogao više podiči, jer bi ga vetar oborio. Ali bilo bi bolje, da.

  5. I actually believe that 6×6 or square format is not dull at all…we’ve been swamped with the 35mm frame for a long time. Video has changed to HD and what was an academic format is almost gone…so on the contrary I believe that you, of all people, will make this format work in your favor. and I believe you have already with this portrait. thumbs up.

  6. Thx mate! You probably are right, just it’s a pain in the ass to compose it in rectangular format with constant question how will it look cropped. Anyhow, it’s very likely I’ll survive, but it’s not certain 🙂

  7. I’ll be putting my $ that you will survive from this.

  8. Make square format mask for your camera display and use live view. Take this wise advice from a guy from Bosnia. You know how Bosnians are smart. 🙂

  9. Yes, that’s a great solution. I might use that. Or actually I’ll just tape a Sellotape on the edges and I’ll have a square. You Bosnians always inspire us! JC knows some very nice greasy jokes on that topic.
    thx, B5

  10. Sellotape can leave some ugly glue traces.

    By the way… Kako se zove audio kaseta turbo-folk muzičara?

    Selotejp. 🙂
