About Roman Photography

Roman Photography, established in 1989, is a publisher of quality Scottish calendars, greetings cards, postcards and fridge magnets which covers a wide range of scenic landscapes and cityscapes from around the country. The company was formed by Glasgow based photographer Roman Michnowicz. After shooting ‘old school’ on film for over 30 years Roman has fairly recently switched to using a digital system for capturing new images on his travels around Scotland.
“I have loved using film and viewing the slides later on a light box over the years but with new high-end digital camera technology it is now probably easier and far more flexible than ever before. As for which medium is better – film or digital ?
I would say neither as both have their strengths.
Apart from the composition of any picture, colour is so important and as any serious landscape photographer will attest to – it’s all about being in the right place at the right time and typically this is the period just after sunrise and just before sunset. The results from shooting during these ‘golden hours’ can often be amazing and will really enhance the final image. Unfortunately these perfect moments are easily outnumbered by the ‘light not quite right’ scenarios but that’s all part of the challenge and enjoyment in trying to capture something truly stunning and as the saying goes ‘there’s always the next time’…”
