Piotr Górny

I am a student of mathematics in Bydgoszcz. Photography has been my freetime pursuit since high school. Wild birds, in particular songbirds, are the main subject of my works. I photograph in woods, in the open grounds of fields and meadows, sometimes in orchards and gardens. I enjoy achieveing a natural blur in my photographs with indistinctness of varicoloured leaves, coniferous branches, limbs and trunks. Apart from the optical ‘melting’ of the photographic objects of the bloodless hunt, I also find using different perspective very interesting.  In my passion, my photographic enthusiasm dominates over my interest in wildlife. I am not after ornithological rarities as the main characters of my photographs are mostly popular birds. Regardless of the fact that spotting new bird species is very exciting, I enjoy good photo composition more, even if it presents very popular bird species.
