I have officially opened my Paula's Photography page on Facebook.  At the moment there are only add old photo-shoot photos but trust me the holiday season is coming and this going to be new remarkable photo-shoots. Already have some ideas inspired by 80's - 90's films. Can't wait to start capturing and developing new photos:)

Flower Girl

Posted on 18 November 2012

All of the sudden, out of nowhere I just got an inspiration so I decided to work a little bit on Photoshop. I've chosen photos of myself, which ones was taken by Evie Parazite during the summer time.
Sadly, I haven't download the latest CS6 Photoshop from my university shop so I'm still working on CS5 one. I've never worked in this style - all pink, flowery, soft colours, lots of layers, heart shaped brushes and so on. I must say I actually like it, maybe I should use it this style more ofter. Here are the photos for you to judge: 

I really recommend you all to check out Evie Parazite's Photography. All her photographs and contacts you need are HERE.
Have a nice and relaxing Sunday. Like I do:) 


Wild Kid

Posted on 15 November 2012

Wild Kid - is my new photo-shoot. I named it like that because nowadays young teenagers are feeling stressful, lost, not knowing what to do and so on. This is my artistic interpretation how I see teenagers these days, who are trying to stand out from the crowd, be independent, interpretive thing in their own ways. 


Officially became a Flaneur!

Posted on 14 November 2012

This Monday I had an interesting start of week. Even though it was a rainy day (or you can say typical London weather) me and my friends decided to walk around London most famous boutiques in Mayfair area.
The first stop was Sketch restaurant. Before it become a place, where people eat it was a place where people enjoyed fashion. In mid-20th century it was Christian Dior’s London atelier, within which Dior housed his collections. I must say the restaurant itself is amazing, no wonder why in 2005 Sketch was ranked as the 18th best restaurant in the world by Restaurant Magazine. 

Just few steps forward there are Yamamoto and Miyake boutiques. I especially liked Yamamoto, the quality of his work is extraordinary. His prestigious awards like, the Japanese Medal of Honor, the Ordre national du Mérite, the Royal Designer for Industry and the Master of Design award by Fashion Group International.

In the same street there was boutiques like Eterno, Mochino, Vivienne Westwood (man and woman), Belstaff, Donna Karan, Berluti and Burberry.

Next street we walked through was Savile Row or as I called it "Heaven for British styled gentlemen". This is the home of tailoring, famous throughout the world for it's craftsmanship and skill. It's to tailors that fashion designers come to seek technical knowledge. Imagine, you walk, see amazing shop windows with hand-crafted, extraordinary suit designs and one level down there are talented tailors sewing and adjusting those suits for you. As I say, typical British gent must know and even once walk down this row. The are boutiques like, Henry Poole (the oldest tailor on the row), Norton and Sons, Kilgour (famous photographer Nick Knight shot an ad campaign for), Richard James, Lanvin, Alexander McQuee and many more. 

Oh my God, I love McQueen's work!

Hello hello Old and New Bond Street's. Now I can call these two street "Heaven for Ladies all around the World". And let me tell you just few names, Tiffany & Co., Chanel Fine Jewellery, Cartier, Bvlgari.
Did your heart just skip a beat, ladies?

Cartier Christmas decorations was amazing. We literally stand there for like 10 minutes and just stare. AMAZING! Have a look yourself: 

More or less all these brands trying to stand out from each other. The customer is just amazed by all these bling bling's, while walking down the New Bond Street, it's like trance - once you finished you're starting to wonder "Is that was real?". 

 And the last stop for that day was Bruton Street, which is famous for it's commercial galleries and also fot Hartnell. There also are Stella McCartney, Matthew Williamson, Scream gallery, Ronald Phillips. Not far away there was Balenciaga boutique with amazing changing room. It's like madhouse room, one side of it is coverred with white leather squares and other, from floor to steeling are mirrors. Also I was nicely surprised when I saw the Louboutin's Christmas trees. 

And this is not over yet, it's going to be one more day out in London to see the rest of luxury and couture boutiques. I not here is a lot of thing out there waiting to be seen:) Hehe. Have a nice day and hope this post wasn't to long for you.



Tim Walker – Story teller

Posted on 6 November 2012

This exhibition is located at Somerset House and the sponsored by Mulberry. Even if you don't know Tim Walker works, those two words says a lot, right? 

    Somerset House

Once I walked through the door I was amazed by the whole interior and the quality of the photos. EXTRAORDINARY.  That's the only word was going in my mind all that time. Lot of these days photographers has lack of ideas and inspiration, always copying something, but Walker shows the high standard and amazing, never-seen before ideas. In his work there is a lot of famous people like actresses, designers, television hosts in the variety of characters and face expressions.

Mainly models dominate in this exhibition. The Tim Walker's locations and the way he sees and later on edits the photos are just unexplainable. See it yourself. 

This doll is massive and must say scary as well. 
 Overall, the exhibition is the huge success. If you in London, love fashion photography, want to be inspired (every one in a while, we all can have lack of ideas) and just simply love art, then you must go and see this Tim Walker - Story Teller at the Somerset House.



Greta in my photo-shoot

Posted on 3 November 2012

Today I've  done a photo-shoot for my friend Greta. Is not a secret, she is +size model, so I have a little challenge. The way of thinking what angle is the best for her, so to make her look more like real model. I must say, Greta has a natural instinct how to pose, what side of her looking better in photos than other.

Few tips if you ever going to take photos of +size lady.    

Never take pictures from the bottom. Try to climb on a little chair, hill even thick  cardboard box, trust me this type of angle will change a lot.   

Photoshop is always a good idea (like Paris), so you can make a difference's using it. But again remember to don't over use it. Less is more.   

Style of clothes and layering is also a good point. Talk to stylist, flick magazines for ideas and trends for this type of model. Don't use over bright colours, on the other hand if you really want to use it, you can try in different way for example, hot pink lipstick, neon yellow bracelets or necklaces. 

Sky-high platform shoes is your number one priority!
Here is the most successful shots for this photo-shoot. 

Probably I'm that type of photographer who likes to use Photoshop. Make it all look flawless. And not check before and after. A lot of changes, right?
