I believe it is mainly a matter of goals, ambitions and will. To have the ability not to give up and be able to strive for an aim, and do everything in order to work towards it. To stay focused and make the most of your skills, talents, time and personal position. I also think that another important factor is to have either a family or some friends that are able to support you, and celebrate your achievements as well as helping you when you struggle. Lastly, I only think you can find true success, if you sincerely love what you do.
Hi Ellelouise. Thank you very much! Indeed, I definitely prefer Tumblr as well. Best wishes!
Hi! I always use natural light (as much as possible!) for those portraits. That really makes my eye-colour stand out. The lens I mostly use is a really good 24-70 mm. lens - the sharpness is incredible if you get the focus right (which naturally might be difficult for self portraits!). Moreover, I edit a lot with curves.
I hope that helped a bit! Thank you.
My beautiful, beautiful website was a gift from my father for my 15th birthday. We designed it, and later he built it up from scratch (HTML and Dreamweaver).
Hello there! Thank you very, very much. I am really happy to know! You have some really nice work, and a great grasp of light and details, despite the fact that it is not that long ago you picked up a camera. Keep shooting and improving! I would advice you to focus on larger projects. I have completed a 52 weeks project myself, and just as a 365 days project, it tends to become extremely rushed from time to time. Focus on a concept and try to explore different kinds of editing. I shoot with a canon 5d mrk II - my beloved baby. :)
Again, thank you! All the best of luck to you, Greta
