Angelika test shoot. Backstage


Beautiful aspiring fashion model Angelika @ FL Model Management posing during test shoot. Video by Tatiana Kurnosova.

How to learn posing whether you're an aspiring young model or a person who' s interested in fashion? My tip : just need to listen to your body language, don't try to copy the exact poses that you see on the screen. Try moving a little bit and choose simple, relaxed and natural poses, follow your intuition. At first, try posing in front of the mirror, then when you'll feel more confident, just try posing in front of the friend, then ask someone to photograph you and see the result. Good luck!

Gmarket haul. Korean beauty products review



Hello everyone ❤ Here's my new unboxing Gmarket haul video. I've recently purchased some of Korean make-up & cosmetic products and thought I'd like to share it with you guys.

I really love Korean brands, they have such a nice quality and reasonable prices comparing to many European ones. I'm a huge fan of some products which I've been using for many years. By the way my mom loves them too! And what else I really love about Korean make-up and skincare products is their lovely design and the smell, - yep, they're usually smell super delicious, so you almost want to eat them lol

OK, this time I've purchased mostly beauty products: some items for skincare and some make-up as well. You'll find the whole list of everything mentioned in this video in the video's description box.

Thank you so much for watching!

Stepping out of darkness


This year has been incredibly taugh for me.
I think I've mentioned that a million times already. Not because I want to point on that, I'd like to tell  you that even if you have the darkest times you can get through it. Yes, it will be hard, but you can, I promise.

So, I've tried to figure out why it was like that for me...
No, there weren't any tragedies in my life or anything like that. And I'm actually so thankful to the Universe for that.
I've just been in a constant depression mixed with artistic crisis for very a long time... And that darkness has been so deep that I almost believed that there's no way out and I was stuck with no goals, no purpose, no art.

I wasn't happy with my work, I wasn't happy with my way of living and  I was constantly thinking about it.
So, after being tortured by myself for quite a long time, I've finally came up with the simple truth: no one can save me from that feeling except myself. Because I've created this cage of thoughts inside my head, I've created this situation.

You know our thoughts are the most powerful weapon. And the way we think actually creates out reality. We either build a strong wall in our head, getting away from the world, hiding deep inside being afraid of everything or we use our thoughts to build the comfort zone inside and out. Starting with the self love, care and compassion.

Start thinking of yourself as of a friend, who needs help. And what would you tell your friend in the situation like this? Would you yell at him and tell how miserable he is having no real broblems (like everything is basically good, there's no war, no starvation, no economic crisis going on), but having problems in his head, being silly? If you're a good friend you would rather try to calm him down, be kind and help him get through this, have a little talk or a long conversation... Right?

So, let's imagine that you are your own friend. No, there's no need in imagining that, just become your own friend right now. Just listen to yourself. What do you need at the moment? Do you need help, do you need comfort, love, care? Right now, right here.

If you have no one to talk to or you're afraid having a conversation about that, start talking to your diary. Write down you thoughts, try to figure out why it's been happening to you...

Be kind and patient.

And I think that's enough for this post. I will be continuing this conversation though.
Meanwhile, let me know your thoughts about it, I will be happy to hear it.

Be kind and have a lovely day.

A break


I've realized that it's been a year break.
A break from posting anything here.
Like a silence...

No, I haven't been silent for all this time, I've  been using other social media sites and apps like instagram. And I've been living my life. A bit messy life though.
This year is a hard one, but it's getting better and better with time. And I'm really excited. I'm getting better.

I want to live in a real life, in this momen.
I love the Universe and the Universe loves me.
And no, I'm not crazy horoscope fan or anything, but I've been feeling really spirutual lately and I love this positive energy of my mind, I love these vibes, this thrill and the calmness.
I enjoy writing down my thoughts.
I enjoy being naked.

Anthology



There was a time of doubts.
There was I time when I've deleted most of my personal and non photography-related posts from here.
Feels like I'm going to fill up all of the wholes.

At this time my priority is my inner world, my harmony, my magic. I cut off all of unnessesary things, take a break and rethink, redo, replan. It's scary, it's unstable, but necessary.

Today I've baked this pie.
The chocolate cherry pie. To tell the truth, it didn't turn out great, but still good though.
Not so sweet, but filled with berries and raisins. Just like our life. You feel like it's almost аlmost flavourless and then you accidentally get your doze of sugar.

____________

Было время, полное сомнений.
Также было время, когда я удалила отсюда почти все свои личные посты, а также все, никак не относящееся к фотографии. К слову, сейчас мне немного жаль. Но это тоже часть моего пути.
Кажется, я заполняю пустоты.

Сейчас, мой главный приоритет, - мой внутренний мир, моя гармония, моя магия...
Я отсекаю все ненужные вещи, делаю перерыв и думаю заново, делаю заново, планирую заново.
Это страшно.
Это не стабильно, но необходимо.

Сегодя я сделала пирог.
Шоколадный пирог с изюмом и вишней. Честно говоря, получилось не очень. Но и не слишком плохо, даже вкусно в какой-то мере. Но где-то в пропорциях была ошибка (а я все делаю на глаз, потому что жутко ленюсь гуглить рецепты и, к тому же, так просто веселее).
Пироге не слишком сладкий, но в нем много вишни и изюма.
Прямо, как наша жизнь... Одно время, ты думаешь, что она практически безвкусна, а потом ты неожиданно получаешь дозу сахара...

Stop thinking start doing




Just start doing things you wanna do.
No matter what.

Sometimes you need to 'turn off' your thoughts, forget about the doubts and just begin. Begin doing something... Something you've been willing to do for a very long time.

Turning off your doubts and thoughts will help you actually make some progress in things you've been afraid of. I'm sure there's a part of you that is frightened of changes, new decisions or anything else. We all have our fears, who doesn't?

So, please, please just forget about that dark thoughts at least for a moment and begin a journey to your new life. Just block that darkness and fear and find your way.

I'm back. With some darkness and some light, Just the whole self. As it is.
Hugs.

Перестать думать и начать действовать.

Есть в этой фразе что-то...
Что-то глубокое и бессознательное.
Я не буду говорить вам, насколько важно двигаться вперед, развиваться в прямом смысле. Да, это важно, но меня, прежде всего, привлекает немного иная трактовка данного текста.
Я говорю именно о нашей психологической блокировке, - о мыслях, страхах сделать ошибку, показаться уязвимым и пострадать от своих же действий... В первую очередь, я думаю о переменах и волнениях, связанных с ними.
Но мы же страдаем и от бездействия, так ведь? От боязни сделать тот самый шаг, попробовать что-то новое или отказаться от привычного?
Иногда нужно просто отключить все свои мысли, свое сознание. Просто начать. Начать делать что-то... То, о чем вы тайно (или явно :) давно мечтали, то, что планировали, но откладывали по тем или иным причинам.

Просто отключите мозг и включите механические действия... Шаг за шагом. Вы увидите, что все легче, чем кажется. Попробуйте.

И я вернулась.
Со всеми темными и светлыми сторонами. Просто всецело, как есть.
Обнимаю.
