Fashionistas, past 2: Mira and Thilda Berglind

Mira and Thilda Berglind are another fashion bloggers worth mentioned in my Fashionistas series. Two sisters from Sweden became very popular among all fashion bloggers few years ago. They blog about their style and love for fashion on Kanal5.se – 365 Days. Currently, they travel around the Europe and post amazing pictures, full of taste and passion. Both look like models and both take great, fairy-tale-like pictures. Is there any better recipe for a successful blogging?  Meet Mira and Thilda – Swedish girls from a fairytale.

Fashionistas, part 1: Olivia Lopez

Girls who blog about fashion , persistently and creatively, usually “end up” as stylist for fashion magazines or important websites about beauty and style. Sometimes they run their own blogs and get a lot of money from ads and sponsors.  There is a one word describing all the girls (and guys as well, of course) – Fashionistas. I have been addicted to few fashion bloggers since I first saw Olivia Lopez’s Lust for Life blog. Olivia is a 19 years old American girl (she started blogging when she was 14), who passionately writes about fashion and style. She is a student, blogger and model. Olivia presents her recognizable style, posing on all of the pictures placed on her blog. Meet a girl full of good ideas – Olivia Lopez.

Children through my lens

Photographing children is one of the most exciting subject in area of photography. To take good pictures, a photographer has to be very, very patient and creative. Photographing babies is much easier than e.g. 6 years old kids, but good photographic skills are equally important. Personally, I really enjoy taking portraits of children in all ages. All the pictures I am posting below, belong to me and describe my way of seeing children through the lens of a camera. There are few nice tips about this subject here. Photographer Hendra Lauw writes about being patient, using toys, choosing colours and rule of thirds while taking pictures of children.

Dainius Sciuka

I totally enjoy looking at Dainius Sciuka’s work. He is a young, Lithuanian photographer and he is definitely interested in fashion and street photography. Sciuka captures young, beautiful people, crazy and vain like a whole new generation. He is able to frame every single hedonistic, but at the same time very decadent gaze and make it look cool and trendy. He loves colour. His pictures are saturated and alive. And his models cooperate with him very well, it’s easy to notice. Take a look at a fresh fashion photographer, Dainius Sciuka.

Halloween 2012

Last year’s Halloween party was amazing – nothing more, nothing less. This years’s party was much more quite and leisurely. But I can not complain – having a drink in my hand and chatting with friends, I still had some thoughts in my head. Basically: college, college, college… I am very, very busy this year and the college takes all my free time. That’s the reason that I don’t really think about parting and drinking right now. But I am proud I am a student again and I am glad I study such a beautiful thing like photography. So, with a drink in my hand or without, fingers crossed to finish my college with good results and a big smile on my face.

College made me “Black and White”

Since October I have been taking pictures basically in two colours:  black and white. Well, we can always argue that a black and white image has many, many more than only two colours – all the tones of gray, from light to dark, make the image very diverse. Anyway, I fell in love in all the black & white photographs and I started to look at this kind of photography in a different way than before. I used to think that a monochrome image is sad and I usually considered it as an art. But since we have been bombarded with all of the rich in colour and saturated massages in magazines and ads, I really need to slow down and take a fresh look at the beautiful, dreamy black & white photography. All the pictures below by me.

Hand Painting

There is an amazing Italian artist Guido Daniele, who paints on hands and body. Laying the hands in a right way, he is able to shape a perfectly detailed animal. The realism of these painted animals is almost impossible. In 1990 Guido Daniele added a new artistic experience to his previous ones: using the body painting technique he creates and paints models bodies for different situations such as advertising pictures and commercials, fashion events and exhibitions. His hand painting has even a special name: it is called the Handimals. Take a look at his amazing art. All the pictures are borrowed from his website. Enjoy!

Annie Leibovitz – Life in Pictures

Reading a short biography about an American photographer Annie Leibovitz, I’m surprised how many books has she written as well. The books contains all of her work of course. There’s one book that she published together with Susan Sontag, an american writer and filmmaker. The book is called Women and I’m definitely going to read it soon.

Lana del Rey

 

Lana del Rey (real name Elisabeth Woolridge Grant) is 26 years old American singer and songwriter. She started performing in american clubs at age 18! Now, her discogrphy includes 3 best selling albums: Lana Del Rey a.k.a. Lizzy Grant (2010), Born To Die (2012) and Paradise (2012). The Born To Die album is definitely my favourite and the song “Blue Jeans” belongs to it. Enjoy listening to one of the most amazing voices on the Earth!
