to go outside with the camera

Taking photos helps to regain life energy

Taking photos can be very helpful in depression, anxiety, a decrease of mental and physical energy, stress. I’ve been going out with my camera for years when I didn’t feel well enough, or my mind was anxious. And, I observed how quickly my energy was back each time I went out to take photos. The mind is busy looking at nature or street around while taking photos. It gets cleared from anxiety. The feeling of peace and engagement is regained.

Developing creativity

One of the elements of developing creativity is discovering your inner landscapes in the external landscape. The muses, which are our inspiration, live in streams, tufts of grass, among the leaves of trees, on a park bench, on an old woman’s windowsill, just everywhere. They are colors, reflections, light and shadow, sounds, rustles, blasts of wind, movements. When going outside, we go forward with attention and interest, the world unhurriedly reveals its faces to us, and our imagination responds like a mirror – transforms the feather into an angel, leaves into a raft, a pebble in a stranger from distant sides. And suddenly, it turns out that the gray square in the city is enough to enjoy a creative look.

Flowers stories

The world around is beautiful, nature in harmony. You have to go very close to discover its message, feel the peace it brings. Just stop crouch. Enter the fairy-tale world, which is woven with light, shadow, reflections, and clearances. Flowers talk about sensitivity, tenderness, love. They are eternally alive. In the spring colourful, firm and fragrant, in winter they become delicate like moths, vibrating in the wind and freezing cold. I can admire them for hours.

photos help to express in words what we feel and experience

Photos help us to express ourselves

Sometimes it is difficult to express in words what we feel and experience. Sometimes it is easier to just show it, saying for example: “I feel now like this woman in the picture” and thanks to that I can unblock a further story.

Photos enable us to express what sometimes is difficult to put into words. They provide a picturesque form of communication.

Seeking beauty through lenses

Sometimes, it may be hard to get up and appreciate the gift of the day. The image which we have of our lives and our day may be unhappy, sometimes. When it happens, I go outside to look for beauty and harmony. Nature around us is very beautiful and to see beauty is a choice.

To seek beauty is a treatment.

With my lenses, I touch the beauty.

making a self-portrait

On Self-Portrait

Self-portraits are a way to look at yourself from the outside in.

The process of making a self-portrait, which includes posing and snapping the picture, is a way of getting to know yourself, to make contact, to express yourself. It’s a pursuit, examination and attempts to understand what we’re made of. It’s the beginning of a continuous internal dialog, a way to uncover your secrets and become a friend to yourself.

The most important meeting in your life – the one with yourself.
