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 :)

 

The Life of Shabat
A short we made in our unit for practice.
Subtitles in English are available.
Enjoy :)

I’m having technical problems:
My phone was stolen during the IDF’s operation (someone snicked into my room and took it while I was asleep) and on top of that, I don’t have internet in my home since Tuesday because our line just broke down and the technician made false promises about fixing it till Thursday. I’m using my dad’s phone as a modem for a short while, just to keep you guys updated :)
Here’s a picture I took today at old Jerusalem. I went there as part of the short course I’m taking about photographing cultures. We got a mission: to set a ‘trap’, waiting at one place you like and wait for something to happen. I had a lot of luck.
See you next time when my internet is back, hopefully this Sunday.

Got featured on Radar! A thank-you letter to my followers

I woke up this morning early to pick up a good friend back home from her base, just to come back home and discover this:

And then, this:

It made me so, so, very, very , VERY happy.

And I owe it all to YOU, the followers, you give me confidence in my work and now I feel an even better reason to go out and take pictures!! I feel so grateful and I owe my thanks to each and every one of you, new and old. New for giving me this thumbs up and old for keeping following this blog (and my partially improper English), although I had a lot of rough and dry times in the army recently.

I wish all the new followers a ‘pleasant stay’ and I promise to keep up with my work!

Love you all so much!

- Itai

P.S.: To all you photographers out there, keep the good work, my feed wouldn’t be so inspiring without you either.

A picture I took last week at the Jaffa Port Market.

Concluding my series from Armenia is a picture of one of the squares in Yerevan, the capital of Armenia. I really like the symmetrics of these main squares so I used my widest focal length and waited for the right moment.
The right moment came with the woman in the middle, which drives the main composition of the picture. Another thing I like in this picture is that everyone is either moving or in the middle of an action.

How long do you think this shot is?
I used a nice long exposure technique, using a five seconds (!) exposure, which let the light from above light my subject and enough time to use a flash to light the old stone inn.
This is another photo from Armenia. In the middle is our travel instructor, Shirin, one of the most amazing men I’ve ever met.
I’m running out of posts to write about, I pretty much summed up what I think about Armenia and what I’ve learned. Next posts are going to be only pictures and maybe a little bit of text.

Remember him? I took a picture of him more than a year ago. Then he was smiling. Today he’s tired and his business suffered because of the war.
