Just had a quick look at the photographs in your catalogue Witold ... how do you get the colours so "intense"?

Julie, oh, it is a very dangerous process involving many secret old chants and boiling of special herbs for several nights... all really dangerous...
well... actually...
When shooting in 35mm, I try to not underexpose the images and to use as good of a lens as I can afford on as good of a camera as I can afford... then the choice of film is on the "vivid" side, there are films that are made specifically to help with the colors. I then help a little in Photoshop, by working with the levels, the saturation of various channels, the photo-filters...
When shooting digital, my settings are on the vivid side again, then there is a whole procedure of correction and adjustment, photoshop again.
I work with the photographs before I am okay to share them. I often choose to adjust cropping and perspective as well.
For me, the actual shot is just a small step in a larger process of making the picture.
