Boston sea

Another sea gif. Because I like them! It makes me smirk, thinking that  this thing will go on forever now!

Julia S.

Going to Boston and not shooting Julia - makes no sense. Even though she doesn't need any more portfolio pictures, as she is already accepted in NY Fashion Institute of Technology, as well as in other designer schools! I'm sure she'll do great, and we will see many wonderful creations of hers in the future!
Those are some of my favorite pictures from the last session. I was fascinated by the "creepiness" of their basement, and tried to combine these awesome textures with harsh lighting. I'm very pleased by the results, and I hope she likes it too:)

The first and the last pictures are my absolute favorites!
BTW, I tried on those pants, they are super comfortable!

Here are some pictures from our trip to Boston last weekend.

Just before the US border the road was blocked because something was burning badly. We had to turn around and go to small border post,  and didn't lose a lot of time this way.
My main goal for this trip (apart from visiting our dear friends) was to go to the sea side. Despite the fact that I saw this place multiple times before, I still like to go there. Just to walk on the beach, collect sea glass and to take pictures of the ocean over again.

And a rare picture of myself, courtesy of my husband and his smartphone:)

Kitchen stills

I love the contrast between this chipped paint and my very elegant tea cup:) From time to time I'm thinking about fixing my kitchen walls, but this great texture stopping me every time. There are only 2 spots like that, and I'm trying to figure out how to preserve them:)

Picture perfect

I love for my house to be picture perfect. At least for most of the areas.  That's why I'm surrounding myself with pretty things and arranging them all around me in tiny still life - like composition, changing the details from time to time, according to my current mood.
This is what I have today on my working table just beside the monitor: Vintage lamp, Polaroid shot from few days ago, electronic butterfly in a jar, little box with roses containing small office supplies, snuff box (which I'm slowly filling with goldfish teeth), and a new enameled locket, that my husband gave me today as Bday gift.

Speaking about high key

I found only one high key image in my archives:)

But here I just didn't have a choice!

Kitchen stills

Yesterday I woke up to find these lilies siting in my fish bucket. My dear husband snuck  out in the morning and brought me flowers. How cool is that!?  Apartment smells beautiful,  and I have something pretty to photograph!

P.S. Believe it  or not, but I was trying to do a High Key image. For some reason it didn't happen again.  I just cannot pass these deep shadows!

Wedding pretty B/W

What do we do if no bright colored wall is found at the scene, if the day is overcast and everything is, well, beige?
We shoot for black & white!

Because black & white never fails, and we can always find some graphic elements to build a nice picture:)
