Welcome to my HDR photography blog

Mostly it’s just about the photos, and less about the words :). I try to add a new post every single day, and for the last 5 (now it’s almost 6 ) years I didn’t miss a single day. I try to add a lot of different stuff, guides, articles, tutorials, reviews and similar. You can find the complete list of them under Guides and under Reviews. I also add a new process post every Monday, where I show how I edited one of my recent photos.

Also please excuse any grammatical errors on this page. I’m not a native English speaker, and I never found out why people are so obsessed with grammar (and I make more errors in my own language :) )


If you want to contact me for any reason, please use my address miroslav.petrasko@gmail.com.

A little info about me:


My name is Miroslav Petrasko, and I currently live in Bratislava, Slovakia. I studied Informatics and worked as a game designer. I started with photography about five years ago and directly with HDR. Before that I did a lot of abstract art in Photoshop, so the HDR style was really interesting to me.

To find a little more about me you can check out the first issue of Pattern magazine where there is a short interview with me. You can view it online here or download a pdf version from Dropbox.

I also did a small interview recently for a blog The European quartet, and that can be found here on the European Quartered blog

Or to see which games I worked on check here my Moby games profile (not much yet, but will get better )

Where to find me and my photos:

There are so many social networks out there and here are links to my accounts on them.

I’m most active on Facebook, so there you can find me the most time :)

The best (and prettiest) way to view my photos is on my smugmug portfolio here hdrshooter.net

You can also find my photos on Flickr, 500px and Tumblr, but the only place where are all of them is the portfolio. I also used to do abstract images and they can be found on Deviantart.
