I'm Itai Jamshy, an IDF soldier in the Film Unit of Education Corps from Ramat Gan, Israel. I love film and want to grow up to be a director. I also love photography and this blog is meant for me to share my photos and daily insight with you :)

Still in time to give up with sionism, mate

First of all, it’s Zionism.

Second, what’s demonstrated now is a war that has nothing to do with Zionism. Zionism has already fulfilled itself when we got our own country. Ben Gurion, the first PM of IL said “Between choosing the whole land and a having our own Jewish country, we chose a Jewish country” and I still see this statement true to today (I wish our PM also saw it that way).

Hammas is manipulating the whole world by going to an all out war with a country it doesn’t stands a chance going against. And our country can’t stand still while the Hammas is building tunnels to go out in our territory and kill innocent citizens. They also sacrifice their own citizens to gain leverage. If it was happening in the US, they would’ve already wiped out the opposing country.

I’m an Israeli leftist, and a soldier and I truly hate this little war. I can’t say I’m proud of my country for going in on foot, but I can say they had good reasons, and that if we hadn’t, we could’ve have faced much worse consequences. I think both Hammas and the Israeli government DON’T want peace, because they both profit from a state of war. And who suffers the most? The common folk on both sides. And I think Zionism is to live in peace, and to resolve problems diplomatically, not violently.

So stop adding to the flame using words you don’t understand. We are all human beings.

I know this blog is about my photos, but I can’t be quite anymore about the situation here in Israel. I’ve been to the front, and I must say Israel has the right to defend itself.

IDF’s at a war and instead of sending us to film on the line they sent us to tighten the security on a remote base… At least we had a week of rest after all the crazy productions. Yet, I still want to be on the frontier, to get a chance to prove myself.

Two days ago I came back from Armenia, bringing back a lot of new experiences, stories, and some pictures. I’ll upload about one or two a day.
Enjoy :)

Lensblr Quote of the Day

(via lensblr-network)

Toying with the new lens, both for portraits and general macro, you can see it’s extremely sharp. Also, wide open, it has an amazingly shallow depth of field, which makes my life a little bit more hard (I’m used to half the focal point). It’s amazing to shoot on 1:1. I’ll also try to make a ‘mini-studio’ and practice product photography next week (hope I’ll have time for that).

In the meanwhile, here are three photos I took with the lens yesterday.

New lens, new possibilities!
I’ve bought myself a grip and a new Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens!
I’m off ready to explore new worlds.
…and I broke my promise to the doctor, but I don’t feel any pain anymore!
