Goodbye High School

It,s hard to believe, but today was my last day of high school. I will miss my classmates - that,s the only thing I can say for sure now...
Unfortunately, I can,t write much today because I have to prepare for my first exam that I have on Monday and I hope you understand the importance of being well prepared... ;)

Anyway, here is the small movie I made to remember my lovely classmates. Hope you,ll enjoy it :)




Have a nice day!

Spring Fever

 
 
 
 
Spring has come even to St.Petersburg and I can,t get enough of bright green leaves, tulips that are literally everywhere, thunderstorms and many many other things that happen only at this time of the year.
 
Hope you are having a wonderful week! As for me, I,m already looking forward to exams that start next Monday and to the prom.
 
Big hugs!

Today I Break My Promises

In the countryside I was finally able to do what I,d been dreaming about ever since I had got a tripod: a photo shoot in the forest. Shooting outside is so much easier than in a cramped room...
I might have already mentioned the difficulties I face when I take pictures of other people. One of the problems is that models are not always ready to do what I ask. For example, some of them won,t lean against a tree just because of some imaginary cruel insects. This seems so ridiculous to me. I spent my childhood in the countryside and I have always tried to be as close to nature as possible. I enjoy touching branches, leaves and flowers, I enjoy lying in the grass watching tiny beetles that are busy with something... What can be better than that?
I have always wanted to find the model who would be cooperative and wouldn,t be afraid of my weird photo shoot ideas. Now that I have a tripod, I can be my own model, which is great as I love both taking pictures and modeling. Obviously, there is a lot to learn: I still look really odd in the photos because I have to control my camera and can,t just relax and have fun. Anyway, the most important thing is that a tripod gives me independence: asking someone to take my outfit pictures has always been a very awkward moment for me...
Hope you are having a wonderful week!
P.S. Here,s a little message for my Russian readers (this must be the first time I write something in Russian on this blog and doing this seems so strange).
Приятная новость: интернет-магазин ASOS совсем недавно открыл русскую версию, но самое интересное, что на сайте Промокодабра можно найти различные скидочные купоны, которые сделают интернет-шоппинг еще приятнее. Тем более, что скоро выпускной у некоторых, самое время воспользоваться таким предложением :)

Caturday!

Cat photography season is finally opened and I,m so immensely happy that I want to shout it out.

I decided to take a little one week break from school because exams are approaching. This might not sound very logical but the thing is that I belong to those who study more efficiently at home. I can study at my own pace and I don,t have to get up too early, which is very important because sleep deprivation has a negative impact on memory.
I thought it would be nice to spend this week in the countryside being able to sneak out with a camera any time because I can,t live without cat photography anymore.

It was rather chilly and rainy yesterday so I didn,t get a chance to go for a walk and had to dedicate the whole day to drinking tea studying. Today I woke up to see the sun shining brightly. I was so impatient that I couldn,t wait till the evening and went for a walk being well aware of the fact that afternoon light is the worst when it comes to photography. As a result, I came back being disappointed and frustrated, thinking about quitting photography because I have no talent. Well, in the evening I realized I was not ready to give up ( oh, the golden hour, you do miracles!).

This lovely kitty was not very cooperative but I managed to get her attention in the end... I like how the yellow collar matches her eyes...




Hope you are having a wonderful week!
