Oh "Shoot"!

I've been always passionate about photography and my what I truly like is but since my last year trip to America I stopped doing photoshoots. But this is what I've been missing, so after my graduation I'll get back into that kind of a routine. *wink*.

Portrait photography is not that simple as it looks. A portrait photographer must develop an eye for good exposure. Photographing people requires a good attitude, the ability to adapt, and a LOT of patience. Also he should be able to recite the rules of photography like ISO, aperture, shutter speed and use more of the camera than its Auto function. And I just like how through a portrait photography you can show a personality. I'm working on this skill now. 

This week we went to a very nice studio not far away from the downtown, where we even got to eat candies and delicious cookies, (which made Rita very happy), but I want show pictures from that photoshoot a bit later. Now I'm sharing some photos I've taken in the Neskuchniy garden two weeks ago of beautiful Natasha. She is such a lovely girl, it was a great pleasure to "shoot" her, but it was too hot so we got tired a bit earlier than we expected. Moscow heat can be cruel sometimes. :)

After the debates I had with my professor on my graduation paper this Friday, I felt like I need some more time with my family. That's great when you are close with your siblings, I'm lucky enough to be close with my nieces too. Polina was performing in her dance school this Saturday, so we all met up there and had this improvising photoshoot. They both are so photogenic, that I could take pictures of them for hours, but being busy with my graduation I don't get to see them very often. 

Can anybody pass my exams for me? Please and thanks!

They say "Art never comes from happiness", but it's not true for me. Every day contains at least one happy event, a moment in time that we are thankful for. This is how my every day goes.

 I don't know where I'm going but I'm on my way and I'm really grateful my parents haven't ever pushed me. They just said that I can be happy only when I can live outside myself. And I do.

My hero.

Today is very important day here, in Russia. 67 years ago was the Victory Day over Nazi- Germany. For me it's one of the most important Russian holidays, it's not only my country's history, but because it's the part of my family's history too.
