Hiking in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Images from the Mountains
Our action camera of choice is the DJI Osmo Action.
For those that don’t know, or maybe care, this type of camera is extremely small, lightweight and rugged enough to withstand considerable “mis-use” in extreme locations.
I normally use our camera for recording vlogs.
Recently I bumped into one of Bosnia’s top action and outdoor photographers, Vladimir Tadić.
We discussed cameras and all things photography, videography and droneography.
Vladimir normally uses a GoPro, but when I suggested that in my opinion the DJI was better, and maybe he might like to try it out, on a trip he was just about to depart on, these images are the first he sent back from that trip .
I really do need to learn more, as the quality and composition of these images are something I would like to aspire to.
The following is from the Srpska Times:
Vladimir Tadić is a mechanical engineer and photographer from Čelinac. His works mostly show nature, mountain landscapes, adventure, cities and architecture.
He also deals with astrophotography, timelapse photography, aerial photography and video, as well as sports, portrait and product photography.
His beginnings of photography go back to 2017 when with his photographs from the phone he won awards at photo contest and received recognition from the editor of the National Geographic site.
So far Vladimir has had one solo exhibition of photographs and has participated in several exhibitions in the country and abroad. His works were exhibited in 12 countries where he presented himself with the natural beauties of the Republic of Srpska and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
From the awards, he says that he is most fond of his first prize at the photo contest of mountain photography in Split. Some of the awards and recognitions he won are: Prize for natural assets of the Republic of Srpska, for the natural beauties of the Balkans, for mountain adventure, for the most beautiful photograph of the river Vrbas…
Vladimir is also known after his Facebook publication of a photo from Kalemegdan, where he accidentally shot the act of proposal of two young people and his search for them, which included social networks and almost all media in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia. He says his inspiration comes the mountain spaces and people who breathe there.
He does not attribute his work to himself and his art, but he thinks that it is more important to be a witness of a certain moment in the space and to recognize the same thing that can be offered only by the one who is the creator of everything.
