Ever wanted to have a new wildlife picture on your computer desktop every day? Or a wallpaper in your bedroom containing a romantic get-away such as the Seychelles or a pristine Alpine lake? Or a table cloth, glass, t-shirt or refrigerator magnet containing a beautiful nature photo that will smuggle a smile to your face as you go about your daily business? Do you want to impress your loved ones or your colleagues with images of unseen nature scenes, actions of wild animals, a serene lake with vivid reflections of the surrounding mountains, a waterfall with a rainbow over its majestic flow or an unbridled cascade bursting through the rocks, carving its indeliable mark into the landscape?
If your answer to one or more of these questions is YES, then you’re probably at the right place as I am hopeful I have in my gallery just about what you might need. Please, take a look by browsing through this website, and make your choice. And if you find nothing worth investing in, just tell me what you are looking for, give me a little time, and I’ll take my best educated shot at it, and will create the image you have been dreaming of. It will be my pleasure to do so.
Wildlife photography is the act and manner of taking pictures of wildlife.
Wildlife photography is generally looked upon as being one of the most challenging forms of photography. In addition to needing sound technical skills, such as being able to expose correctly, wildlife photographers generally need good field craft skills. For instance, some animals are difficult to approach and thus a knowledge of the animal's behaviour is required in order to be able to predict their actions/movements. Taking pictures of certain animal species may require extensive stalking skills or the use of a hide/blind for concealment.
Whilst wildlife picture can be taken using basic equipment, successful photography of some creatures requires specialist equipment, such as macro lenses for insects, long focal length lenses for birds and underwater cameras for recording marine life.
Landscape photography is a genre intended to show different spaces within the perceivable world, sometimes vast and unending, sometimes microscopic.
Many landscape photographers show little or no human activity in their photographs, striving to present pure, unsullied landscapes that are devoid of human influence, using instead subjects such as strongly defined landforms, weather and ambient light. Despite this, however, there is no pure or absolute definition of what makes a landscape in photography. Consequently, it has become a very broad term, encompassing urban, industrial, macro, as well as nature photography.
Though a lot of photographs are inspired by traditional landscape painting, the term in photography is very broad, most places and things can be photographed as a landscape, a kitchen, a lamp, a wall, or even the human body can be turned into a rolling vista by a highly skilled photographer.
Landscape photography has become a valuable tool to inspire environmental stewardship. Capturing the beauty of unspoiled places serves to draw public awareness to dwindling wilderness areas.
14th September, 2009: After careful planning and months of preparation, Daniel B. Harcz's photographic website has been launched. The website is aimed at providing visitors with a representative sample of his art, as well as furnishing an opportunity for the purchasing of Daniel's pictures in various forms and formats. New photographs are going to be uploaded on a continuous basis as they are made. Daniel is planning several challenging journeys for the coming months and years, including Glacier Park (USA), Galapagos, the Norwegian coastline and hidden gems of the Swiss and Italian Alps. These journeys will hopefully enable Daniel to surprise his fans with breathtaking products of his photographic quest.
