Itīs not that I forgot about Althemy, of course not. But...some new things happened and I had suddenly somehow even less time, than before.
As I wrote earlier, aside from posing in front of the camera, I also standing behind it. I loved photography for many years, it was my hobby, my relax, my way to learn how to see the world a little bit differently.
But I never got the best gear, just a cheap digital camera.
It was okay when I took photos of flowers and details, but I saw the limitations when I tried to take photos of friend or animals.
So, earlier this year I finally decided that I want to try and take it to the next level - I bought myself a DSLR camera.
The first days were hard. Even when I loved photography, for quite some time I didnīt take almost any photos. And this didnīt change with the buy of the new camera. I even got little bit scared, that maybe I donīt enjoy taking photos as much as I though and as I used to.
For the first days, even maybe weeks, I was hesitant. I tried to take some photos at home, just random stuff, but still didnīt get the feeling I was looking for.
But than I went for a walk with a friend (a photographer I live with ) and while he was trying his gas gun, I went and took some photos of just random weed at sunset. And there it was! The feeling of almost childish joy and pleasure.
That was the moment I fell in love with my new partner. It may not be the best DSLR on the market, but itīs the best I could get and for now Iīm happy and satisfied.
So, now Iīm trying to learn more and more about photography and editing. I want to learn more about animal photography (especially dogs...maybe itīs because of the photographer I live with...he is mainly a dog photographer ), and of course I also want to start working with people.
There is so much to learn, but it makes me really happy. I just wish I had more time, because I mostly have free at the weekend, and spliting my hobbies in mostly two days is quite hard (but Iīm also working on a schedule, so I can have this in check ).
I recently made a different page for my photography work. Itīs funny how my modelling is mostly dark and goth, but my photos are colorfull and happy (maybe aside from when I take photos of people...I definitelly want to go the darker way when it comes to people ).
