About The Photographer
Daniel Tomanovic is a young and very talented landscape photographer living in Cerklje Ob Krki, a lovely small village on the left bank of the Krka River in eastern Slovenia. He has been creating images that portray the natural beauty of Slovenia and its landscapes for over 8 years, and learned from reading books and following his favorite photographers on the internet, especially Serge Ramelli, a fantastic photographer from Paris who has lots of informative YouTube tutorials on various aspects of landscape photography.
Daniel believes that finding good light is the first and most important thing to create great landscape images and that it is really worth making the effort to shoot landscapes during the first and last hours of the day, when the light is the softest and most colorful during sunrise and sunset. Everyone can capture outstanding landscape scenery, but hunting the special light is the true challenge for a landscape photographer. And judging from Daniel’s works, he is very successful in capturing beautiful locations in the best light. Every single image has a unique lighting in it, which makes it distinct from other works.
Daniel’s favourite subjects are scenery related with water: lakes, rivers, waterfalls and sea. Since he started he was fascinated by long exposures as they represent an accumulation of time. Capturing much more than a fleeting moment in one photo really inspired him to start practicing and perfecting the technique. This is something the human eye can’t do and the results can be fascinating.

Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia and is situated at the center of the country. With a population of just over 285,000 it’s nowhere near Europe’s largest cities.

The first few splashes in the water are the hardest, but once you take a leap of faith and immerse in the pool it is an unforgettable experience.
