About Igor Smode

Igor Smode is a photographer from Ljubljana, Slovenia. He has become masterful at subject matter ranging from People Portraits to nature, architecture and landscape photography.

Igor’s favorite cameras and lenses include the  Nikon d750 camera and  the Nikon d7100 camera. This is a list of lenses he uses. These lenses are made in USSR and include the  jupiter 11, jupiter 8 jupiter 37-a, helios 44-2, and Tokina macro100 f2,8.

He is from the town of Ljubljana, Slovenia. Ljubljana is the capital and largest city of Slovenia. During antiquity, it was the site of a Roman city called Emona. It was under Habsburg rule from the Middle Ages until the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1918.

Today, Slovenia‘s capital and largest city also happens to be one of Europe‘s greenest and most livable capitals. The European Commission awarded Ljubljana with the coveted Green Capital of Europe title for 2016. Car traffic is restricted in the center of the city, leaving the leafy banks of the Ljubljanica River, which flows through the city’s heart, free for pedestrians and cyclists.

In summer, cafes set up terrace seating along the river; it almost feels like a nightly street party.

Slovenia‘s master of early-modern, minimalist design, Jože Plečnik, graced Ljubljana with beautiful buildings and accoutrements; attractive cities are often described as ‘jewel boxes’, but here the name really fits. And bringing life to these historical riches, the city’s 50,000-odd students support an active clubbing and cultural scene, and the museums, hotels and restaurants are among the best in the country.If you  would like to read more about Ljubljana, follow this link:

The photographs of Igor are masterful in their composition, capture of contrast, texture, color and emotion. Many of his images contain additional unique visual enhancements, such as the appearance of images embedded into one another. This effect is evident in his architectural images, seen above. Though this technique and others, he adds subtle emotional nuance and creates a sense of timelessness that push the boundaries in traditional photography.
