365 Project – Week 10

Time flies like crazy! Autumn has finally come, bringing beautiful colours I was able to use for some of my shoots (if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you probably already have seen some photos). In fact, the two shoots I had this week were one of my favourite ones ever, especially the one with a guy in front of my lens! :) Also, my dear blogger friend Karina visited me in Lucerne and we had a lovely cosy time together. As...

365 Project – Week 8

This week I discovered the magical forest next to my place. I went there even though it was raining and the atmosphere was captivating, I was mesmerized.

So far, my fellow students were anonymous, so I wasn’t too worried about them. But last week I received some emails from my university and...

They’re like a pretty face that’s pleasant to look at, but exchangeable with any other, blank. I figured that the lack of emotions is due to the fact that I’m still a beginner. My focus isn’t on conveying emotions yet. Instead, I’ve been working on the theme and atmosphere. I’ve also been playing safe, following other photographers and trying out...

One

1 year, 12 months, 366 days. Happy birthday to my beloved little blog. This is my fifth blog in almost five years. During my blogging journey, I had some ‘official’ blogs known to friends and family where I had to ‘censor’ myself and some blogs nobody knew about where I wrote about whatever I was feeling, thinking, experiencing. This is the first that unites both. I’ve been working on being honest and open on a blog known to friends and family...
