about this site

This website is dedicated to nature and wildlife photography and shows a selection of images made by Arthur Tiutenko. Its main focus is on photographed subjects rather than on photography techniques. Therefore technical details („shooting data”) aren't provided. Please feel free to contact Arthur if you would like to know technical information for any image.

All images of animals and plants presented on this site were taken in the wild. For some close-up photos, amphibians and insects were put in a place or in a position that was more suitable for photographing (e.g. in better light, cleaner substratum, etc.) while they were still remaining in their natural environment. For the majority of animal photos — particularly for those that were taken with a telephoto lens — the subject was not disturbed at all.

You won't find a separate gallery of landscapes here. Though there are many such images, they are treated as habitat photos and hence are presented on pages dealing with specific animal or plant species. Some landscape images are grouped with fauna and flora photos to themes. A theme is a photographic account of a place or a species. Themes are supposed to be viewed as full-screen slide shows. However, if you prefer to view images by selecting a thumbnail, you can switch to the usual gallery view. If a theme is just a panoramic view of a certain location, it is being scrolled automatically from left to right or from right to left.

If you click on a thumbnail in a gallery, the image will be shown. If you move the mouse over this image, arrow symbols will appear. By clicking on them you can switch to next or previous image in the gallery without returning to the thumbnail view. The same can be done with left and right arrow keys on your keyboard or with the wheel on your mouse. You can return to the thumbnail view either by clicking outside of the image or on the cross at its upper right corner. The following symbols under each thumbnail in the gallery give you additional choices:

shows low resolution image shows a high resolution image shows copyright information shows a gallery with other images of the same subject shows an automatically scrolling panorama

Important note: The display of colours may be inconsistent across different browser and operating system kinds. To ensure that your are viewing the images with correct colours we recommend to use „colour-managed” browsers. In Mac OS such browsers are Apple Safari, Google Chrome and OmniWeb. In Windows, Safari is the only browser that works with colour profiles. In current version of Firefox only an older version of colour profiles is supported. In Camino colour management is disabled by default and has to be turned on by the user. Internet Explorer, Opera (as in version 10) and the Windows version of Google Chrome have no colour management at all.To check the colour management capability of your browser, you can use the official colour test page of International Colour Consortium (ICC).

about arthur

Arthur Tiutenko has been photographing nature subjects since 1980s. Since 2008 he uses Canon digital SLR cameras with Canon, Carl Zeiss and Sigma lenses. He travels to places with natural habitats to capture wildlife and nature images — more for zoological and ecological documentation than for photography as art. At the same time, Arthur wants to show the beauty, variety and uniqueness of nature. To achieve this goal he always wants to create and to present only photographs that are technically and aesthetically of high quality.

In his digital imaging workflow Arthur always uses software but never modifies the original content during postprocessing — preserving the authenticity of the photos and their documentary value.

Arthur Tiutenko lives in Erlangen, Bavaria (Germany). He has a university degree in biology, software engineering and a PhD in linguistics, and works at University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.
