Portraits

I went on this workshop of portraits a few weeks ago, with a great photographer from Sao Paulo. She’s amazing, I really love (and respect) her work and it was everything I thought it would be. So good to know talented people and realize they are all so very nice, huh? It gives me a little hope to thing not everything is lost, haha. Anyway! One of the main subjects on those 2 days was creativity. How do we keep our minds creative enough, to inspire our work and our selves. So I took my F100 with me and while I was doing the exercises with the digital I shot one in film when I felt like it was the right time. Of course I didn’t shoot every time I thought I had a good frame, but, you know, life’s not always perfect and the right time sometimes happens when you’re with your digital camera in your hands. I only had a few frames in this roll and the other one is still in my camera, so.. Here you’ll see shots of those amazing people I met during those magic 2 days. They are all very talented female photographers, and I lovde to have met them.

The photographer: Sharon Eve Smith, her work is great and she is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met.

  12. It does open your mind, Kasia. To speak with people you consider to be that talented and to learn how they keep inspired, and to know their problems is the same as yours, is so amazing! haha. You learn new ways to deal with everyday life. It is kind of a therapy. But between photographers. :)
