I don’t like to go into sophistry in photo techniques. Firstly because so many other photographers do it, I don’t want to join the queue. Secondly, there are so many different views and approaches one cannot expect everyone to follow the same rules all the time and think everyone is mistaken for doing things in a different way.

Few days ago I wrote about the photo gear theft at Hungaroring photo centre last weekend and I wouldn’t want to come back to he theft topic again. However I have to write about this too. At Sziget Festival you should also watch out for your valuables. In the big crowd it is just as easy to loose something accidentally as it is possible to run into thieves and get things stolen.

I got involved in a very interesting debate with a few colleagues about photographing the recovery of the capsised and sank passanger boat Mermaid. Some of them were complaining for  some of his “really good” photos not getting published because TEK (short name for Hungary’s Counter Terrorism Centre) banned them.

Yesterday along the rest of Hungarian and international media I photographed the recovery of the passenger boat Mermaid that suffered a tragic accident in Budapest on river Danube almost two weeks ago. During the operations I made a time-lapse video to show you how the rescue happened. The time-lapse below shows the nearly 10 hours long process in only 1 minute.Yesterday along the rest of Hungarian and international media I photographed the recovery of the passenger boat Mermaid that suffered a tragic accident in Budapest on river Danube almost two weeks ago.
