It will be long, sorry for that, but I wanted to tell you my story. :P At first, please see the 'video'. Especially the end. And if you pay attention, you will see backstage of my photos. ;) @itskatarinaaa, you ispired me to start another project: 365 seconds. So here is the first part. ;)
If you ever thought about photography seriously, you probably looked through internet forums or even asked some questions. I never posted anything, but I was looking for some answers. For example about cameras, lenses or later about weddings. I saw so much haterd and envy that I have enough of it for my entire life. I saw answers: „What?! You don't know that?! Than you shouldn't even thinking of wedding photography or taking money for that!”. (And guess what! I haven't seen anything of that here!)
I started with concert photography. I did it for tickets, later I was taking photos of public events. Do I have to tell that I did it for free? :P After two years I decided I want something more. I started to work TFP. If you want a new challenge I strongly recommend you to try it yourself! (In Poland we have site: maxmodels.pl/fotograf-imieniny... – here is my profile). Because I'm rather antysocial and introvert I was really stressed before my first photoshoot. But funny thing – it turned out that taking photos it's my 'here and now'. That's why I love it so much. Weddings also give me the adrenalin. I don't think about anything else during the ceremony. But at the end of recent year something happened. I was so burnet out and never in my entire life felt so underappreciated. And when I came here... it almost immediately has changed.
I know that I took crappy photos and I know I'll do it again, but I believe that as long as I have the knowledge what I did wrong and a constant feeling that there is so much to work on, I won't stop learning. We all have something that deffers us from other people. We have passion, we have strength and stubbornness. Without those features we wouldn't be able to finish our projects.
I didn't think even once that I won't be able to finish 365. Of course, after every bad photo I was disappointed at myself but I knew that it would eventually pass. Last couple of months was the hardest because I took almost all of my photos at home. I was in pain and I barely could move. So I wrote a plan for two weeks and it kept me alive. That's how Dark Place arose and I think it is my favourite series. It took a lot of work, but at the same time I had so much fun (like during playing with food. ;) )
That's why I decided to finish my project with the opposite od Dark Place. You wouldn't believe how much you helped me. I appeciate your every word and support. You made me smile so many times. Not to mention the motivation and inspirations! I can't thank you enough. What can I say beside that you are the best? And that the Tookapic is the best place ever?
With this mushy accent I'm ending this lengthy description and... see you tomorrow! Because I'm going out to celebrate. ;)
