Alter ego

July 6, 2010

The great thing about shooting yourself – in photographic terms – is that you know what you want and no direction is necessary. The bad thing about it is that you need to be photogenic, otherwise you’ll just end up shooting self half-a-portraits all the time – like me – ‘cuz the whole picture is just simply not pretty. Sad. But true.

Working again

June 29, 2010

They say time flies when you’re having fun. I say time flies even when you’re dying of boredom. That’s just the way it is.

40hours with no sleep.

First day at work today. I forgot how it feels like to work. New colleagues are above awesome.

Crave some more photo shoots…

Writing dissertation.

God, I could just die right now.

Eyes closing, brain resigning,…

Tired. Just tired.

ZZZzzzzzzzzzzz……………………………

New post…

May 26, 2010

I hate giving titles to my posts….It’s almost always just random b/s anyway…why name them?

One wisdom tooth’s out of the way… 3 more bastards left…

Just realized yesterday that my student’s life is going to an end in a few weeks… I’ve never particularly liked school, but thinking about leaving that life behind….it’s just sad. Like they say, you never know what you have until you’ve lost it. It’s even harder to leave when everyone’s talking about going here and there to continue their study… My sentimental self would love to continue, but my sensible self is shouting high time to build a career… Still, it’s like leaving my whole life behind….I’ve been studying since I was 5 for God’s sake… Haizzz…

Boredom talking on a boring evening…

March 16, 2010

I really really really really hate washing dishes. I swear to Lucifer the first thing I’m gonna buy when I get my own apartment is gonna be a washing machine! That is if I’ll have enough money to buy one cuz, you know, artists are usually really really poor. In most cases anyway. I’ll be on seventh heaven if I’ll be able to afford a flat, let alone spare money to buy a washing machine.

I didn’t use to be this calculating. I blame my education for that! If it hadn’t been for all that economy and business stuff and “time is money” talk they’d been putting in my head since high school all the way through university, I wouldn’t be what I am now. All calculating and counting the opportunity cost every time I have to decide something. It shuts my creative mind, really 😀

Test shoot w/ Katie

February 28, 2010

I officially hate Prague’s weather. Had a photo shoot with my classmate Katie today and it was so freakin’ cloudy the whole freakin’ time! It’s been so sunny the whole week except for Friday – when I had my first photo shoot – and today – when I had my second photo shoot. We did some shooting in the park and right when we were going to pack our backs and call it a…’half day’ it started to go all sunny! I mean, what the hell?! We went back to Katie’s place for her to get changed and just right when we stepped inside that freakin’ Sun got behind the clouds again. UN-believable! The light was so bad I ended up with tons of blurred pictures. Screw that old weather hag!

‘Nways, I learnt some pretty good stuff today too – like always zoom with your feet when you have crappy lens, LoL! I hear that stuff all the time but seriously, I think until you realize it on your own, you won’t remember any of the advice given.

Bunch of pictures to edit. Aaaahhh!!! Gotta sit down and dedicate a whole day to learning new photoshop stuff.


Test shoot w/ Lucy

February 26, 2010

So today I finally got to use my camera for what it was originally purchased for: fashion shoots!!

Lucie is an uber-lovely young girl who lives an hour away and who came so prepared I couldn’t ask for more. She even did her own make up and didn’t whine once during those endless attempts of making a cat-eye-line that was up to my “standards”. The photoshoot went pretty well, thanks to this nice young lady. It was fun, too. Can’t wait to do some more!!!!
