Spell time

This is one of my most favorite dresses. It is vintage and authentic and belonged to my grandmom when she was young. So it's like 50-60 years old.
Это одно из моих самых любимых платьев. Оно винтажное и аутентичное, принадлежало моей бабушке, когда она еще была молодая. Ему лет 50-60.

Moon thief

Read the original story up on Broncolor Gen NEXT blog!

My first experience with the Balloon Lightshaper was about two months ago. I was just testing it in my apartment and having fun doing a self portrait. This time I decided to continue my Moon series and do a real photoshoot with a model and on location.

The model is my good friend Yana Bobrikova who helped me to create paper flower for my last Gen NEXT project Flower Girl.

I started with drawing a sketch. Sketches help me not to forget the idea, better picture the whole composition and think over all the details.

We went to a lonely beach not far from our house, waited for the right time of sunset and after that we had only few minutes until it got completely dark. I used my Move 1200 kit with two MobiLed flash heads, one attached to the Balloon and the other one was on the stand to the model’s right. It was crazy windy so I couldn’t use any reflectors or umbrellas. The light turned out a little bit harsh so I had to soften it during further postproduction. The "pieces" that fell off the Moon were created with cell phone lights.

I often work in such extreme conditions and it was another great experience. I’ll probably continue my Moon series in future.

Hola Mexico!

Cancun, Mexico

I've never been to tropical climate countries before and didn't really wanted to, to be honest. I'm not a fan of beaches, bright sun and hot weather. We went to Mexico because my cousin was going to get married and her mom couldn't get a visa. That's why we came up with an idea of Carribean wedding because Mexico is visa free. And like I always say: everything's for the best.

We went to Cancun (bride's choise). Although it's crazy hot and crazy humid right now (+32° C and 80-90% humidity) I was amazed by nature there. I've never seen palm trees with coconuts and bananas before. I've never seen such a seashore with water of all those amazing saturated shades of blue and soft white sand. I've seen little turtles and iguanas running across the street like squirrels in Central Park. Though were in an all inclusive hotel and tourist spots I really enjoyed Mexico.


Я никогда раньше не была в странах с тропическим климатом и, честно говоря, особо не хотела. Я не фанат пляжей, яркого солнца и жары. Мы поехали в Мексику, потому что моя двоюродная сестра выходила замуж, а ее маме не давали визу. Тогда мы решили сделать свадьбу в Карибском стиле, потому что в Мексику виза не нужна. И как я всегда говорю: все что ни делается, все к лучшему.

Мы полетели в Канкун (выбор невесты). И хотя там сейчас чертовски жарко и влажно по нашим меркам (+32° С и %80-90 влажности) я была поражена природой. Я никогда раньше не видела пальм с бананами и кокосами. Я никогда не видела таких пляжей с водой насыщенного цвета всех оттенков голубого и белым мягким песком. Я видела маленьких черепашек и игуан, которые бежали через дорогу, как белки в Центральном парке. И хотя мы были в гостиннице "все включено" и в туристических местах, Мексика мне очень понравилась

Flower Power

New Broncolor post for Gen NEXT
Read here

Most of my portfolio are images from my personal art projects, collaborations and workshops. But I also do private commissioned photoshoots from time to time. I try to work with people who have same vision and sense of beauty. The best results can be achieved if the client fully trusts your taste. But I always take all requests into consideration and we agree on all the details together. Sometimes I come to everything already set up, sometimes I create and develop the idea entirely from scratch.

This was one of those times. The girl’s name is Jenny O'Connell. She is an actress from New York. I met her this spring and she wanted to do something mystic and beautiful like out of a fairy tale. She wanted me to take care of the whole process because she trusted my judgment and loved my work. And that’s when I knew we would do a great job together. She had two options in her mind: a light flower theme and a dark mysterious one. After some consideration we decided to stick to the first one. There was a lot of discussion about the outfit, make up and color scheme. We definitely wanted to do a flower headpiece or a crown.

We decided to wait for the summer and search for a location. And that was a tricky one. New Yorkers are usually car-less people and most of the beautiful locations are out of the city. We already set the photoshoot date, booked a makeup artist and a hairstyle person, but the location was still a problem. Literally a couple weeks before the shoot I came up with a great idea to do huge paper flowers as a set. Everybody loved it. Location didn’t matter anymore, we could shoot in any city park.

To help me with making flowers I asked my friend Yana. We have quite an interesting story. She is from Ukraine as well. She is a photographer, stylist, decorator and just a very talented girl. She moved to the US with her family just 4 days before I did. I’m so lucky we now live in the same city and can work, collaborate and create together. In 2 weeks we picked up materials and she made those huge paper flowers and a crown.

The photoshoot took place in Prospect Park. It was pretty dark there because of the trees but some bright sun light was still shining through. That’s where my loyal companion, the Move 1200 kit, came to the rescue. I used one MobiLed flash head with a silver umbrella to soften harsh shadows from the sun. When it became darker, I used it as a continuous light because it’s less intense.

It was quite an interesting and fun experience to work with client on location and use professional lightning equipment. Move 1200 is just designed to shoot outdoors.

VP Fashion

I never wore hair extensions in my life. I'm pretty satisfied with my hair length but I always wanted some extra volume. Thanks to beautiful human hair extensions from @vpfashion now I can be a real mermaid! They are sooo thick. I dyed them with @manicpanicnyc and still need some skill to style with my hair, but hey... My husband said I became smaller :)) I wear 24" and you still can see my real black hair underneath. Use code "anita01" to get a $10 coupon off!

Никогда не носила накладные волосы. Я вполне довольна своей длиной, но они тонкие и всегда хотела больше обьема. Но теперь благодаря трессам от @vpfashion из натуральных волос я настоящая русалка!:) Их тааак много. Я их выкрасила под свои волосы маникпаником и надо еще научиться укладывать, но блин... Муж сказал, я стала меньше :))На мне заколки 24 дюйма и все еще видно снизу мои настоящие черные волосы. Можете использовать код "anita01" для скидки $10.

My moon

New blogpost is now on Broncolor GenNEXT!

A couple of weeks ago I was browsing the broncolor website, searching for interesting lighting equipment for my next order. That’s when I came across the Balloon Lightshaper.

This area light with its all round light angle of 360 degrees is ideal for shooting naturally illuminated interiors. I got very interested and contacted Dan, Broncolor representative. He was very helpful and sent it to me for some tests.

I came up with the idea of my Moon image right away because of the perfect sphere shape of the Balloon and the nice soft light that it creates.

I decided to make this shot a self-portrait. It was made in my apartment and only took me a few minutes to prepare the setting. I used the Move 1200L kit with the Balloon attached to one MobiLed flash head and another MobiLed directed to the wall to create a contour light. I set up the tripod with my camera and took the remote control. I used the flash heads with the impulse light at their lowest intensity and a simple Nikkor 50 1.8 D lens. Camera settings were 1\200 s sutter speed, f3.2 aperture, ISO 400. The rest was made in postproduction.

It was a fun test and I am very happy with the results. I can’t wait to create new work with Balloon in the future and maybe even try a Moon series!
