Welcome to my Seeking Beauty in Ordinary photography blog. I am Poland based fine art photographer, graphic designer & web designer. For almost 20 years, I used to work as an Art and English teacher at all school levels. As a designer working on commission, the needs and tastes of my clients are priority. While photography is my way of self-expression, my true love and passion. I took it up in 2009 and each day I’ve been learning something new about photography, technique, gear, etc. Looking at the world through the lens made me see everything in a sharper way, more consciously. I have learnt to notice beauty in things commonly perceived as ugly, ordinary as well as I have learnt to sense some mystic energy surrounding me each day.

I hope you enjoy my through-the-lens vision of a world I share with you on this site and find my Art language tips useful. Your comments are an invaluable feedback to me.For more information about my work visit my Painted with Light website. Contact with via my BEHANCE Pro Site.

Digraphy - My Digital Graphics

Digraph 8 by Danuta Antas, 2010

More than 20 years ago, during my fine art studies, I learnt printmaking techniques, including intaglio and relief ones. I particularly liked aquatint and a mixture of etching and aquatint for their tonality and softness. Later on, while working as an Art teacher I had to give up printmaking for some personal reasons. Yet, my love to this wonderful world of black and white tones, textures, lines is still alive and finds its way in a form of what I call DIGRAPHY - digital graphics.

Like in printmaking, I love experimenting with digital photography and editing it in way that follow texture, line, light and tones of aquatint. I wonder what you think of this kind of technique, or maybe you have your own one, developed specifically by you. Share it with us in the comments!


  1. This is awsome Danuta. I did not know technique it is really but it is plendid. Your black and whites are superbs.


    1. Hi Suzanne:) Thank you so very much for a kind comment:) You know, the technique I have invented to show what I have most loved about printing; textures, light and b and w shades shining with silver blinks. I really miss printing; it was actually the technique designed for me. But:) ... instead of missing what I can't have now, I try to do the best use of things available:)
      I am so happy you like my b and white images:)


Thank you for visiting my blog and for your comment. It is invaluable feedback that lets me make progress with my creative work.
I am pleased to meet you:)
