I thought it’s over…
Last time I was more often thinking about my photography and I felt the need for a change. Nothing was really happening through the last few months and I was trying to change it, but didn’t know how. I thought to myself “if I won’t find anybody who is really interested in my photography and who indeed does show as much engagement in our shooting as I do, I will give it all up”. After this decision I was looking for people in my circle of friends who would like to pose for me. I chose crazy and extravagant topics for shootings, but also standard fashion-photoshootings were in. After many appointments that had to be postponed for some reasons I decided to stop with it for a while. For the next few long weeks my only photography were travel and street photography before and during my holiday I’ve spent abroad. I really needed a change. To take pictures of something different, something I haven’t seen here or haven’t done before. Just a change…
After comming back to Hamburg and after long time analyzing the problem and what I could do, I had a spontaneous idea of starting a project where I will ask people to be the creative ones! All candidates should write down creative ideas of how their “dream photoshooting” should look like and I was going to choose the best ones and realize the ideas with them together. So I’ve got some proposes with on average 3-5 different ideas each person and I’ve picked the most interesting ones and those which I still haven’t had before.
Here they are:
4) Ksenia: will come soon
5) Sarah: will come soon
After these shootings I’ve realized that I couldn’t give up the photography. It’s hard to resist the smile on your face when you see those happy people seeing the photographs. I’m very satisfied seeing other people happy and when I can stop some great memories for a long while for them. So it’s not over. I think it’s just the beginning.
